Pat McGrath Chevyland, one of the area’s most trusted auto dealers, is proud to offer the 2012 Chevy Volt, one of the most fuel-efficient vehicles on the market. Using its hybrid drive system made up of a electric motor, 16 kWh lithium-ion battery, and a 1.4L gasoline engine, the Volt is sure to save drivers money at the pump and provide them with an attractive, comfortable ride at the same time. Coupled with amazing safety ratings, the Volt is truly a modern-day classic.
Advanced Fuel Technology in the Modern Age
The key to the Chevy Volt’s success as a hybrid vehicle is the seamless integration of its electric and gas-powered systems. The battery can either be recharged by a conventional 120V or 240V outlet in your garage — taking only 3 hours or less, depending on the type of outlet you use. On battery power alone, the Volt can travel 25 to 30 miles. After the battery is 70% depleted, the gasoline engine kicks in, which, according to Edmunds, averages about 33 mpg. For a driver with a short commute or for someone who goes on short errands, the 2012 Volt might just be the perfect fit. Simply plug it in when you come home and you’re ready for the next day.
A spike in their electric bill is a concern for many customers. On average, the Volt will only cost $1.50 to charge each day — less than half than what it would currently cost in gasoline to send the vehicle the same distance. Even over a short period of time, these saving add up to a handsome amount.
Solid Engineering Meets Comfort
In government crash tests, the Volt scores five out of five stars, as well as the highest rating possible from the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety in frontal-offset, side-impact, and roof-strength tests.
Standard features include a handsome, easy-to-read console that tracks your fuel economy, keyless ignition, and Bluetooth. In short, you won’t be left wanting for features. The Volt can seat four passengers, too, making it a good size for both individuals and families.
