Technically offered as a used car, but this one is advertised as having 150 miles, with the CarFax reporting a few fewer...

I'd sure be curious what the battery condition is after sitting for three years. At the asking price of $10,900, there's still some room to haggle over this little time capsule..

Actually, Obrien Mitsu in Normal Illinois received it in March of 2015, so here in a few short months it will be 5 years old!

Looks like it was a leased car and just not hardly driven. !2 volt battery already replaced, no doubt from lack of use. Still, at $10K or so, I'd buy it . . . . if it was closer and I was in need of another car - Time capsule indeed!

dc chamedo charge port ? a must for me, especially with such tiny pack. Wish our 2016 Volt has fast charge

Pretty sure they had standardized everything for the 2014 and 2016 models - Could be the '14's and '16's are actually the same car? Anyway, I believe there was only one model by then and they all had DCFC

Correct. The only factory option for the 2014 model was the paint. 2016 saw the return of the nav radio option, but everything else on the car was standardized after 2012. The only optional hardware you could get was all dealer-installable, so you can option these up after the fact. IMO, this is the way all cars should be.
