The Top 2 Ways That the 2011 Chevrolet Volt Puts You in Control

2011 Chevrolet Volt at Les Stanford Cadillac Chevrolet in Detroit, MII think that the 2011 Chevrolet Volt is an awesome electric car that puts you in complete control. You can use both electricity and gasoline, and you can even change between three different driving modes. Options are great things to have!

1.) One of the key ways that the 2011 Chevrolet Volt puts you in control is with fuel choices. Unlike how it is with nearly every other vehicle in existence today, you can choose whether you want to use electricity or gasoline at any time. Most of the time you will want to use electricity because it is cheaper, more efficient, and will allow you to produce no local emissions. It is good to have choices, though. With other electric vehicles you would have to keep careful track of your range so that you would be able to get home. There are not an abundance of charging stations in the United States yet, so it’s good to be able to use gasoline to extend your range. Chevrolet thinks that options are good, and they certainly provide them with the 2011 Volt.

2.) When you hit the road, the 2011 Chevrolet Volt gives you control with three different driving modes. Most of the time you will probably choose to keep it in normal mode, which is highly efficient, but mountain and sport are also available. Sport is for when you want to have fun or you’re driving in difficult conditions that require every bit of responsiveness your car can muster. Mountain mode is a practical mode for when you are driving up and down steep inclines. The purpose of this mode is to force the Volt to keep enough electricity in reserve for going up those inclines.
