Exciting Green Technologies

Introduced to an Eco-minded public in 2010, the Chevy Volt is part of a new wave of vehicles to be offered commercially with both an electric motor and a gasoline-powered electric generator. This plug-in hybrid adaptation provides drivers with an extended range over standard hybrid vehicles without compromising the emissions-reducing technologies that are the foundation for green vehicles.

Chevy’s innovative engineering doesn’t stop there, however. With onboard technologies like the ingenious Power Flow screen, drivers can monitor power consumption from the vehicle and accessories like air conditioning and infotainment to get the most out of the available power. Drivers can even see how exterior conditions impact the battery charge, allowing them to prepare when they know weather conditions could affect the vehicle’s range. The Volt also takes advantage of Regen on Demand technology, which stores kinetic energy produced by the vehicle’s forward movement for later use by the motor for even greater driving potential.

Fuel Economy and Emissions Ratings

The 2017 Chevy Volt is now available at Tom Gill Chevrolet, and it makes use of all the above systems with advanced battery technology that provides drivers with a pure electric range of as much as 53 miles. You’ll also get a total driving range of 420 miles when the battery is fully charged and the fuel tank is full. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, the average commuter travels just 15 miles one way to get to work. This means the Volt could handle the daily drive on a single charge. That means using no gas at all on your daily commute!
