Oh, where were we… Today we will present you the fight between 2013 Chevrolet Volt and the 2012 Toyota Prius Plug-In. Interesting isn’t it?

The price of both cars gets higher than $30,000. Even though Toyota was an extreme cost leader in the automakers industry, it also prices quite expensively its new sustainability car. For new Prius Plug In you will pay $32,000, while for the Chevrolet Volt you will pay about $7,000 more. So practically for a green power you will have to pay quite a sum! Let’s see what those two cars have inside. Volt comes with the 1.4L that is capable of 149 horsepower, I4 engine. While Toyota can offer the engine with higher volume 1.8L, but with less ponies, 134-horsepower, I4. Both models have four valves and the front wheel drive. From other features we tend to look at the fuel economy also. So the Chevy can offer you actually as much as Toyota, about 35 mpg in the city and around 40 on the highway.

What can we say, both of these sustainable seem to go side by side, but we will give the victory to a more experienced green cars producer. So in this fight Prius Plug-In takes it all.
