The 2017 Chevrolet Volt may just be the nearly perfect eco-friendly car that combines the short-trip benefits of an electric-powered car and the long-hour driving capabilities of a gasoline-powered one.
The Green Car Journal has awarded the 2017 Chevrolet Volt the Green Car of the Year award. It has a simple mechanism: When it runs out of battery, the engine generates additional energy through its gas-powered generator, so you can continue driving.
It is rated by EPA as having a range of 53 pure electric miles based on 106 MPGe combined city/highway and 42 miles per gallon combined when being using the gasoline engine. The auto company expects the Volt to be able to drive 1,000 miles between fill-ups and with regular charging of its 18.4-kwh battery pack.
The 2017 Chevrolet Volt is also equipped with a great deal of advanced technology. For example, it is equipped with the OnStar RemoteLink that is compatible for iPhones, iPad, Android smartphones and Blackberry phones. This will let you control your car using an app. You can remotely start it, lock and unlock its doors, check the battery, view miles per charge, and monitor the amount of time remaining before you need to recharge your battery. A 4G LTE Wi-Fi service is also available, which lets you connect up to seven devices to the internet.
