The 2017 Trans Am Hybrid Electric offers an all-electric range of 40 miles and then fires up its four-cylinder gas engine. In all-electric mode the 2017 Trans Am Hybrid quietly provides great torque off the line. Within the cabin, the gauge cluster and video screen offer attractive high-tech graphics. The drawbacks include a high price tag (buyers are eligible for a $7,500 federal tax credit), small trunk and seating for only four. However, the 2017 Trans Am Hybrid Electric is an impressive return to Pontiac's commitment to electric cars.
The 2017 Trans Am Hybrid Electric proves to be a highly refined and affordable all-electric car. Pontiac promises a range of 106 miles city/92 miles highway, but EPA tests put the real-world range at 73 miles, depending on conditions and driving style. The five-passenger sports model is fun to drive, eerily quiet, ultra-responsive and also delivers surprisingly good handling. Public charging stations are appearing slowly, so home charging is still mandatory, preferably at the faster rate of 240 volts. Lease payments for the 2017 Trans Am Hybrid Electric are reasonable and the cost of electricity versus gas will definitely win you over.
