I have a new 2017 Volt and I have had it since March 29th.
So far I have put on it 4173 miles (6676 kms) and only burned 14 US gallons of gas (54L). I've only had to put gas in the car once so far.
I owned a 2013 Volt that I traded in for the 2017. The 2013 was a great car and I was planning to keep it longer term. But the stars aligned and saw a great opportunity to jump into a 2017. I was at the Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto and GM Canada was giving out $750 vouchers towards any new GM vehicle. The Ontario government announced at the show that the EV rebates were increasing and for the Volt that meant going from a rebate of $8,500 to $11,500 (CAD). And the finance terms were better than what I had on my 2013. When I did the math on trading now or later I came out to near break even so I thought why not jump into a 2017 now?
I went to my dealer and the Volts are selling at a very brisk pace in Ontario (faster than Camaro's). They did some calling around and managed to find another dealer in Ontario that had a Volt on order with the colour and features I wanted. Basically I was looking for a base blue 2017 Volt. This one also came with the illuminated charge port which I wasn't really interested in but it's nice to have and not an expensive option. When I took delivery of my car the salesman that I have known for several years told me that I was a little lucky in that at the time dealers had stopped swapping Volt's in Ontario because of the shortage and high demand. However they also mentioned that their allocation for Volt's had also been doubled and that they were fighting to double it again.
As for my experience the dealer Barry Cullen in Guelph was fantastic. Great customer service. Their Volt knowledge was decent but better than other dealers in the area.
I had pretty good idea what to expect with my 2017 Volt as a 2013 Volt owner. And still the 2017 Volt blew my expectations away. I'm currently averaging over 60 miles a charge without even trying. When I try I can get that to 70 miles. And if I really tried I think I can hit 80 miles on a charge. The worst I have done to date is 50 miles EV and that was in 30F weather (we had a chilly spring). Loving the heated steering wheel and heated seats. Zero squeaks or rattles and the car has been perfect so far. So far the few times I have had to use gas I have exceed the EPA numbers by ~10%.
Some other notes the car is noticeably faster than my 2013 Volt and GM has really low balled the numbers on this car. The car is also quieter and the user interface is much improved. Android Auto has mostly worked great. I'm very happy with it. The car is slightly larger than the Gen I Volt in most dimensions. I do wish it was a little bigger yet. The hatchback layout of the car makes for great cargo versatility. Headroom in the back is slightly less and it's noticeable. I have found the LED headlights work very well. I have been impressed with them. The increased range is nice for me. This will allow me to do my round trip commute to and from work and go out for lunch plus use the heater in the dead of winter and still be 100% EV. The Gen II Volt still has the engine running due to temperature like the Gen I Volt with similar settings.
