The owner of the first Chevrolet Volt, from New Jersey, calls the electric car â€śthe wave of the future.â€ť
Environmentally-conscious Jeff Kaffee, a retired airline pilot from Parsippany, became the first buyer of the electric car in December 2010, according to GM Beyond Now. He traded in a Toyota Prius for the Volt.
Two-and-a-half years later, Kaffee has averaged about 450 miles to the gallon.
