The 2013 Volt Gets a Bit More Pep in its Step

The Chevrolet Volt is a car that garnered a great deal of media coverage as it rolled out of the factory; much of it mixed. The little electric car that could promised to offer up amazing gas savings to those who signed up to the electric movement. In that respect the car certainly does the job. It has a dual gas/electric engine. The electric charge can be switched off in the 2013 model to conserve the juice for city driving and most have found a respectable 200 or so miles per gallon of gas used.

The car certainly is a lifesaver at the pump and the audio system, creature comforts and general feel of the Volt is nice. The design is fashion-forward and can elicit many stares while tooling around town. The front bumper, designed with aerodynamics in mind, is sharp and aggressive; creating a rather intense looking grill. The back is sharply cut as well which makes the car look sporty from the back. The car is also low to the ground which creates a nice sporty, “glued” feel for a driver who thinks they have a little Nascar in them.

The silence of this car and the ability to drive into the triple digits on a single gallon of gas are the selling points on this car and few people could suggest they don’t get excited by the idea. There were kinks to work out in the 2012 model and GM appears to have answered that with the new 2013. It’s a car that those tooling around a major city should seriously consider taking home!  Get yours at Les Stanford Chevrolet!
