Volt Rides Strong at Jessup Auto Plaza

December 20, 2010

Last week, the very first Volt rolled off the truck (literally!) at Jessup Auto Plaza. It was pre-ordered, so we could only keep it in the showroom for a few short hours the next day, but boy was it a popular attraction.

Everyone wants to know, “Did they get it right?” “How’s it look?” “How’s it drive?” As a Coachella Valley Chevrolet dealership, we’ve taken a good long look at the Volt and it definitely earns our seal of approval. But in case you think we’re biased, we’d direct you to our recent post on all the awards the Volt has been winning. Since then, it’s been named to Car and Driver’s “10Best” list for the year. Not shabby.

Shortly before we got our first Volt, Chevrolet celebrated the purchase of the first Volt! It was auctioned off to the public for sale, with proceeds to benefit the Detroit Public Schools Foundation. The winner was one Rick Hendrick, whose $225,000 bid won the vehicle—making him one happy man, and exciting the students you see below. These are members of the Detroit International Academy for Young Women, and their school will receive $10,000 of the money made in the auction.

The Volt is so many things. An electric car. A feel good car. A triumph. And fun to drive. We look forward to many more here at Jessup Auto Plaza.
