Is the 2013 Chevrolet Volt the New Car for Retirement?

September 6, 2012

Most couples who are planning on retiring will start to downsize their expenses and their assets to make a more affordable lifestyle. One of the most popular approaches is to downsize their vehicle to something that is not only economical, but reliable. According to recent news reports the Chevrolet Volt might be the car for that. Don’t forget to test drive the Volt for yourself at your local Palm Springs Chevrolet dealership today.


The Costs

When a retiree is looking at a new car they want something that is inexpensive to buy maintain and run overall. Since most retirees will make a considerable amount of short trips each day and only the here-and-there long trip once a year or so, the Volt just might be the perfect solution. With an on-board 16.5 KW-hour battery, the Volt has already been shown to travel an astounding 38 miles per charge with any type of gasoline back.

With a standard charging volt, the car will be more inexpensive than other electric car models in terms of upgrading to the right voltage.

Refined and Comfortable

One reason the Chevy Volt is outshining other cars in its class is the fact that is it relatively comfortable and has a sophisticated feel. The front seats are not only adjustable, but heated for additional support. The car will automatically program itself to heat or cool according to temperature settings inside and outside and the cabin is relatively quiet during operation.  The 2013 Volt does have 10.6 cubic feet of space, which is relatively small, but for a retired couple that is more than enough foot and head room overall.

Most retirees look at the 2013 Chevrolet Volt as the new car for the golden years. Now you can test drive the 2013 Chevrolet Volt and see for yourself at your local Palm Springs Chevrolet dealer today!
