The green wave of change is still hitting the car industry hard and its really starting to pay off. If you haven't already heard of the Chevy Volt, it is Chevy's electric solution that is expected to get 230 miles per gallon! Tree huggers everywhere are bracing themselves - is it too good to be true? It is way too good and it is very true!
According to Chevy's website, "The Extended-Range Electric Vehicle that is redefining the automotive world is no longer a rumor! In fact, its propulsion system is so revolutionary, its unlike any other vehicle or electric car that's ever been introduced." The Chevy volt uses NO gas, therefore, it produces NO emissions.
Expected to launch in 2010, this revolutionary vehicle will only need one electrical charge per day, which is expected to cost only $.75 - $2.50 for the average household. This year, the Volt has already been recognized and awarded by many critics. The Green Car Journal gave the Volt it's "Green Car Vision Award" at the Washington Auto Show for "a bold and far-reaching approach that promises to bring an exceptionally fuel efficient model to consumers at reasonable cost."
