Hello all... Joined the forum today to seek info and advice about the Volt. My wife and I test drove a Volt Premier and a Prius 3 today. Needless to say we like both cars and my favorite is the Volt. But have concerns about inside space of the Volt for our doggies. We have two Rotties we like to take with us on trips. Not sure if the back seat folded down will work for them or best to let them seat on the seats.. Anyway thanks in advance. -sfvdoc

Not sure how big your pups are, but in my '14, our 72lb German Sheppard sits/lays fairly comfortably in one of the 2 rear seats with him buckled into it. I feel like the situation would be equitable, if not marginally better with a Gen 2 Volt (not that I've been inside a Gen 2, yet).

hey, we just did two 2000 mile (R/T) roadtrips in a 2016 voit, we have two larger dogs (oodles that weigh 50# and 70#) and not only had no problem, but would take turns sleeping in the back WITh the dogs!

when we took a break at a rest area pulloff, it was a bit tight with BOTH of us inthe back, but the "smaller" doggo took the front passenger seat and we found a nice spot to stop and sleep *and plug in to an outlet so we could run the A/C in 100ºF heat....)* that's a fantastic feature, running the climate controls off of external mains.

here's a pic (the smaller oodle is behind her butt in this)

Get a "pet hammock" for the rear seat
(Link for example, I am not endorsing this specific product)

They are amazingly helpful if you are gonna travel with your fur-pal but make sure you get a good one that is waterproof and it'll last a lot longer.
Some product like this is a must! I have an Aussie terrier and she sheds like crazy. You’ll thank yourself for getting something like this to keep the volt clean. The trunk/back of the seats are impossible to clean from dog hairs. The hammock is easily removable/installable.

Would not have thought of being able to sleep in the back of the Volt.
