Volt is unique among electric vehicles because you have two sources of energy. You have an electric source–a battery–that allows you to drive gas–free for an EPA–estimated 35 miles(1). And there's also an onboard gas generator that produces electricity so you can go up to a total of 375 additional miles on a full tank of gas(2). So if you want to drive using only electricity, you can. If you want to drive using electricity and gas, you can do that too. Volt is first for two very good reasons.
(1) Based on EPA estimates. Actual range varies with conditions. (2) EPA-estimated 94 MPGe (electric); 35 MPG city/40 hwy (gas). Actual range varies with conditions.
Federal Tax Credit
Chevrolet Volt models purchased in or after 2010 may be eligible for a federal income tax credit of up to $7,500. The credit amount will vary based on the capacity of the battery used to fuel the vehicle. Learn More >>
What Volt owners are saying
Sutliff Customer and New Volt Owner - Dan Clark:
“I’ve never had a car that kept my interest like the Volt has. I still love driving this car every day, and I have used almost no gas!”
Sutliff Customer and New Volt Owner - Steve Reinford:
“In August I have averaged 70 mpg from Mifflintown to Harrisburg and back. It does everything I expected and more. My wife Regina loves the Volt so much that she won’t let me drive it as much as I would like. It’s a very “Snappy” car that has a really nice ride.“ Steve calls the Volt his “Cow Power” car as he generates his own electricity from his dairy farm. So he really can drive his Volt for free.
Sutliff Chevrolet Owner - Greg Sutliff:
Ever in the quest to try out exciting new technology, I drove a Volt for some 450 miles several weeks ago. I was very, very pleased. I did not use a drop of gas. Plug it in at night and it was ready to go in the morning. Occasionally I plugged it in during the day. (Just to avoid using that drop of gas) Instead of 13 cents a mile for gas driving, it cost 3 cents a mile for electricity.
It is in no sense a glorified golf cart! It is a fully functional small car. Quiet (even has a special horn to alert unwary pedestrians) and comfortable. Lots of nifty features, including NAV.
Please take a few minutes for a test drive and see for yourself.
