Iowa drivers looking for a car that will get you top of the line fuel economy for years to come should consider the 2013 Chevy Volt, now available for drivers in Cedar Rapids, IA. Featured prominently at Pat McGrath Chevyland in Cedar Rapids, the 2013 Chevy Volt is a great balance of dependability and fuel economy. Since just last year, engineers at Chevrolet have successfully adjusted the Volt’s battery cell chemistry to increase battery capacity, reduce the energy storage buffer and increase the electric range from 35 miles to 38 miles. Subsequently, these changes have also increase the EPA estimated fuel economy from 94 mpg to 98 mpg! Gas mileage like this sounds too good to be true, but its not.
The 2013 Volt Doesn’t Lose Performance Values for Cedar Rapids Drivers
In most cases, when a vehicle increases its fuel economy, the power and performance suffers. This is not the case for the 2013 Chevrolet Volt, which will be available in Cedar Rapids, IA. Drivers in Iowa will actually experience better performance as a result of the redesigned battery. According to the GM Director of Global Battery Systems Engineering, Bill Wallace, Chevrolet has tweaked just the right components to maximize fuel economy and power. “We’ve done some work at the cell level to modify the ‘ingredients’ to make a better end result. This attention to detail will allow our customers to experience more pure EV range, which is the true benefit of owning a Volt.”
Many of the specs have not yet been released for the 2013 Chevrolet Volt. This information will almost certainly be released later in 2012, as we get closer to the release date of the 2013 model. Be sure to visit Pat McGrath Chevyland in Cedar Rapids to check out current Volt models.
