The Chevrolet Volt plug-in hybrid landed atop Consumer Reports’ annual owner-satisfaction ranking for the second straight year. Find out more after the jump!
Ninety-two percent of responding Volt owners in a poll of the magazine’s subscribers said they definitely would buy a Volt again, tops among 240 models, the magazine said today.
Several other fuel-efficient models also scored highly, including Toyota’s Camry Hybrid, Prius, and Prius C as well as Nissan’s Leaf electric car.
The Volt’s two-year reign “points to the continuing trend of owners’ enthusiasm for cars that are fuel-efficient cars, especially as we see more and more hybrid and electric models hitting the market,” Rik Paul, Consumer Reports’ auto editor, said in a statement.
It’s also affirmation for GM executives who’ve battled bad press from early soft sales, scathing criticism from opponents of green-car subsidies, and a late 2011 federal safety probe into battery fires that turned up no significant risks.
