2013 Chevy Volt: Where Performance Meets Efficiency

2013 Chevy Volt at Les Stanford ChevroletThe 2013 Chevy Volt is an impressive upgrade over its previous incarnations, combining innovative engineering aimed at efficiency without sacrificing superior driveability.

Any gas/electric hybrid is first judged based upon its fuel efficiency, and in this regard, the Volt stands at the head of the class. With the ability to power itself up to 40 miles on a single charge, the Volt has a 98-MPG equivalent (1 gallon of gasoline=33.7 kW-hr). Those with a short commute will not have to worry about stopping at the gas station very often, if ever.

With hybrids, there tends to be a stigma that in order to be fuel efficient and environmentally friendly, you must sacrifice power and performance. Thankfully, the 2013 Volt is engineered so brilliantly that the first thing the driver notices is its surprising acceleration, power and handling. This car is flat-out fun to drive.

Among the more exciting features the Volt boasts is the new “Hold” mode, wherein the driver can select which energy source the car will use at any given moment, allowing drivers to maintain the electric charge by switching to the gas generator. This is particularly useful for highway driving, where gas tends to be used more efficiently.

The Volt succeeds where so many other hybrids have failed, proving that power, performance and efficiency can be engineered to go hand in hand.  Check it out for yourself at Les Stanford Chevrolet!
