About Chevy Volt
Imagine filling your gas tank once a month, rather than once a week. Imagine taking a beautiful country drive knowing that the air you're breathing is untouched by toxic emissions. Imagine plugging in your car at the end of the day, just like you plug in your cell phone. Now, you no longer have to imagine: the Chevy Volt is here! The Volt combines sleek design with state-of-the-art technology to bring you a driving experience like you've never had before. Its design gives you the benefits of an electric car with the flexibility to run on fuel. The powerful lithium-ion battery charges from an ordinary 120-volt outlet, and when it's fully charged, you can cruise up to 38 miles fuel-free. The Volt's extended-range mode means that once the battery charge dips below a certain limit, a built-in gas generator kicks in, letting you drive up to 380 miles before either filling up or plugging in. This is where the Volt differs from hybrid vehicles like the Toyota Prius: whereas hybrids are not designed to drive at high speeds or over long distances on electrical power alone, the Volt's extended-range mode does just that. The vehicle has gathered loads of accolades, including Motor Trend's 2011 Car of the Year, Automobile Magazine's 2011 Automobile of the Year, and the 2012 European Car of the Year. In 2011 and 2012, Consumer Reports ranked it number one among for owner satisfaction. Curious to see what all the buzz is about? Test-drive a new or used Chevy Volt today, and experience how quietly and smoothly it runs. You may just need to drive it home.
