Is The 2016 Volt Worth Buying?

Is The 2016 Volt Worth Buying? As orders are being taken now in California, Chevrolet hopes its 2016 Volt due in a couple months will prove to be a superior fuel and money saver for more public.
Since the first-generation model was launched in December 2010, the Volt has had a polarizing effect on public – or ducked under the radar – for too-many nuanced reasons to elaborate here, but those who “get it” mainly like it.
