Chevrolet has offered an innovative and tech savvy alternative to the standard passenger car criteria. With the introduction of the Volt, Chevrolet has done their part to offer a vehicle to those who want to “Go Green”.
Introduced to the U.S. market in 2010, the Chevrolet Volt, a gas/electric hybrid, is growing in popularity. The Volt has a powerful lithium-ion battery which alone can power the car for approximately 35 miles. The Volt operates solely on battery power until the battery has lost charge. At this point, the gas engine kicks in to power an electric generator to help with extending the vehicle’s range. The Volt also utilizes regenerative braking, which basically means that when the brake is applied, the energy required to stop the car is not wasted but converted to another form of energy that is stored in the battery for later use. The Volt also features 4-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, traction control, heated power adjustable mirrors and is enabled with a remote start system as standard equipment. The Volt also boasts hands-free calling via Bluetooth for certain phones, a USB port, a 30 GB hard drive for audio data storage, three convenient 12 volt auxiliary power outlets and a centrally located 7” LCD touch screen as standard equipment. Talk about a mobile office!
Safety takes no back seat in the Chevrolet Volt as it comes standard with dual stage airbags, daytime running lamps, an anti-theft system, remote keyless entry and a tire pressure monitor.
Anyone who purchases a Chevrolet Volt will enjoy the benefits that this vehicle offers. Imagine longer times between fill ups as the Volt offers an estimated 37 MPG in gasoline-only mode. The Volt is perfect for trips around the city or short commutes to work. An owner of a Chevrolet Volt would most likely feel a sense of pride in knowing that they would be doing their part to reduce emissions and help the environment.
