Although production of the Chevrolet Volt hit the skids earlier this year, the plug-in hybrid still lives on in the used market. As such, iSeeCars has recognized the Chevrolet Volt with a runner-up finish in its latest Best Used Car list.
The list is based on an iSeeCars analysis that looked at more than 20 million vehicles, with winners framed as “the safest, most-reliable cars with the best value retention.”
“The winners are cars that have demonstrated long-term reliability, hold their value the best, and have an average safety rating of at least 4.0 starts out of 5.0 from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA),” iSeeCars explains.
The Chevrolet Volt took the runner-up spot in the Best Used EV category, with the Tesla Model S taking top honors. The Chevrolet Volt was the only General Motors product on that particular list, which also included categories like Best Used Pickup Truck, Best Used Sports Car, and Best Used SUV.
The group praised the Chevrolet Volt as the EV with the highest average mileage, as well as its five-star NHTSA safety rating.
The Volt arrived in the U.S. in 2010 following GM’s bankruptcy. In addition to selling stateside, the Volt was also sold as the Holden Volt in Australia, the Vauxhall Ampera in the U.K., and the Opel Ampera throughout the rest of Europe. The second-generation Chevrolet Volt arrived in 2016. GM ended production earlier of the Chevy Volt earlier this year following the automaker’s decision to abandon the sedan segment.
Meanwhile, the Buick LaCrosse managed to snag the win as Best Five-Year-Old Used Luxury Car Under $20,000, with an average used car price of $15,680, according to iSeeCars.
The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 also managed to snag a win as the Best Five-Year-Old Used Pickup truck under $30,000, with an average used car price of $24,829, according to iSeeCars. Additionally, the Silverado 1500 was named Best Three-Year-Old Used Pickup Truck in the $20,000 to $30,000 range, with an average used car price of $29,535.
