Chevy Volt Named Green Car of the Year for Second Time
The Chevy Volt was recently named the Green Car of the Year by Green Car Journal during the Los Angeles Auto Show. This is the second year in a row the Volt was the recipient of this award, determined by an 11-member panel.
According to Chevy, the Volt was praised for its increased range, all-new propulsion system, and bold design, each of which makes this model a serious competitor. In total, the Volt’s driving range is up to 420 miles, with an EPA estimated 42 highway mpg. That means you can go roughly 1,000 miles before you have to refill with gasoline.
“Chevrolet’s all-new Volt is a milestone, building on an already-technologically advanced ‘green’ car and delivering what buyers have longed for, including an impressive 53-mile driving range on a single charge,” said Ron Cogan, editor and publisher of Green Car Journal and CarsOfChange.com.
This model was also named one of the most satisfactory models available on an independent survey. Not only does this model save you money, look great, and drive well, but owners simply love being behind the wheel as well.
