I owned the Chevy Volt . Drove it 6700 miles, loved the power and styling. Did not like manual adjust seats.
Front Seats Ranked 2018 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid FWD better.
"The driver seat is 8 way power, it has a memory and readjusts for that driver. The passenger seat is also power adjust. Both seats are wide and comfortable."
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2018 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid FWD better.
"Trunk is deeper and also wider than the Volt. Easy to show, as I transferred my fitted cargo mat from my old Volt to the new 2018 Clarity PHEV. The fitted mat don’t cover the larger floor space."
