Chevrolet Sets New Hybrid Sales Record with Volt
First introduced for the 2011 model year, the Chevrolet Volt has been a revolutionary vehicle ever since. In fact, because of the Volt, Chevrolet has now set a new hybrid sales record as the first automaker in the United States to sell more than 100,000 plug-in hybrid vehicles.
The current model of the Volt gives drivers an EPA-estimated 53 miles of pure electric driving. Once the battery is depleted, the gasoline-powered generator turns on to give the Volt a total driving range of 420 miles. Many drivers find that with regular charging, they are able to get more than 1,000 miles on the road between stops at the gas station.
With more than 100,000 Volts on the road, this means owners have driven almost 1.5 billion miles without using gasoline. This equals savings of about 58 million gallons of fuel—enough to fill up more than 87 competition-sized swimming pools.
The Volt is also leading the industry with in-car technology, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support. And, with the available OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi, Volt owners can turn their car into a Wi-Fi hotspot that allows up to seven devices to connect at once.
If you dream of skipping the gas station and driving one of the most innovative cars on the market, come take a look at the Chevrolet Volt today.
