Coachella Valley Chevrolet: Getting Ready For 230 MPG

September 29, 2009

The closer we get to 2010, the closer we get to the launch of the 2011 Chevrolet Volt. Nothing is official yet, but La Quinta Chevrolet drivers may be getting 230 miles per gallon with this up and coming, industry-leading car.

The Volt will be a plug-in electric hybrid vehicle. The engine will need to charge just once a day (presumably overnight), and while it hasn’t gone through EPA testing yet, all signs lead to 230 mpg, including a full 40 miles on electricity only (that includes both city miles and highway miles, which is also something new) before the innovative flex-fuel gasoline engine kicks in.

Everyone who’s gotten a sneak peak test drive of the 2011 Chevy Volt raves about it. USA Today noted its blend of refinement and power, and Popular Science commends the Volt for leaving competitors’ “glorified golf carts” in the dust, calling the Volt “a real car.”

As this game-changing sedan enters the refinement phase and prepares for production, drivers are understandably excited. Want to talk about the 2011 Chevrolet Volt, or take a test spin in one of Chevy’s existing fuel-friendly vehicles (the Cobalt, for example, gets up to 37 miles per gallon)?
