With only 6 highway miles on your daily commute, you may find you never use gas - at least most of the year when it is warm outside. In the winter, the EV range will go down a bit - depending on how much you use the cabin heater. It can become a bit of a game: pre-heating the car before you leave in the morning while still plugged in to "shore power", and use of the seat heaters (don't buy a Volt without them) can mitigate the need to run the cabin heater. But of course the ICE is always there if/when needed, so no worries.IT would be a second car along side my Subaru Impreza, I typically drove 22K a year but like I said I think I would divide the mileage in half between both cars over the course of a year and drive the volt on nicer days, and when the weather is going to be bad, Ill take the AWD vehicle out. I drive 19 miles to work, so 38 miles round trip, part of that is highway about 6 miles so I was thinking using Hold mode for that and I should do my commute easily with only consuming 2 gallons maybe a week, so filling up once a month in that drive pattern. And actually on my days off I would probably use all electric for my errands.
