While glad for the good "blurb" on the vehicle, they confusingly represent it. #1--it's an EREV (or PHEV, if you insist on being slightly inaccurate); #2 the 53/45 MPGe is completely unhelpful--I think they were saying 53 EV miles, 45 combined MPG?? I'm not really sure. It makes it appear like that the A-3 e-tron is MORE efficient. NOT!

This is the problem with Volt marketing -- it doesn't fit into any "box" and to the untrained/unwary eye, it always appears like it is NOT as efficient as it is. Cars.com and Autotrader always just list the "MPG" (on gas) of the Volt. For someone who knows nothing, they would think a regular prius is a more efficient vehicle because it has higher mpg ON GAS.
