. . . PHEVLERs are defined as PHEVs with sufficient battery capacity for all electric driving of twice the average daily distance.[1] The average daily driving distance in the USA is 30 miles (48 km), so PHEVLERs are vehicles with at least 60 miles (97 km) of electric range. The 2016 Chevrolet Volt with an electric range of 53 miles[2] is the first commercial car that almost qualifies as a PHEVLER. . . .

Personally, I have nothing against the Volt, but they need to make a version that will fit something other than two 5-year olds in the back seat. Until they make something large enough to fit 5 adults comfortably, I wouldn't even consider it. But, yes, its a great comuter car, or for small families, but I think many people would out grow it as their kids grow up. Retirees: great for them too, no range anxiety.
