2013 Chevrolet Volt

we have 2013 Chevrolet that comes with few changes compared to model for the year. This car had a pretty start when it was delivered to the but latter many drivers noted great advantages range extended vehicles Volt offer and it now brings sale rates than Leaf and Toyota Prius Hybrid.

The four-seat, five-door has a handful of tweaks for 2013 have raised its electric a bit from 35 to 38 miles and boosted its EPA rating from 94 to 98 MPGe. The odd stands for Miles Per Gallon a measure of how far a plug-in vehicle can electrically on battery energy to that contained in 1 gallon of

Despite its challenging first 18 the Volt is a remarkably good car s fun to drive, economical, and a credit to its Motors engineers and designers. of its challenge is that it s sized as a car, with fewer and less luggage capability the Chevrolet Cruze gasoline a four-door sedan that s its price (or less).

But the plug-in Volt is targeted at an different market than the Cruze: early adopters, enthusiasts, environmentalists, and those who the idea of driving on grid instead of gasoline made imported oil. It has the highest satisfaction ever recorded for a GM and its owners are probably its best force, walking friends and one at a time through the mechanics of how a car only about 40 miles of range can, in fact, their daily needs and dispense entirely with anxiety.

Increasingly, the 2013 Volt is pulling in buyers who even considered buying a or GM product. Volt owners are and passionate advocates, and they re to being stopped on the street and the nature of the car with two power

It s the Volt s unique series powertrain, also known as a electric vehicle, that it those dual abilities. The Volt plugs into current—for many owners a 120-Volt household plug, a faster 240-Volt Level 2 station—through a port in the left fender to recharge its battery for 25 to 50 of all-electric range. It takes 7 to 10 to recharge a fully depleted using 110-Volt household

With a 240-Volt Level 2 station, usually installed in the s garage, it takes less half that time.

The s T-shaped lithium-ion battery in the wide tunnel between the and below the rear seat, the 111-kilowatt (149-horsepower) electric motor that drives the wheels. When the pack is the car s range-extending 1.4-liter four-cylinder and its attached generator seamlessly on, generating more electricity to the car in motion for another 250-plus (There’s one exception under the engine adds power to from the motor, but never never know.)

More 75 percent of all U.S. vehicles 40 miles or less each so Volts charged up at night may not on their engines for weeks at a But with the engine on, it ll do 300 miles, refill the 9-gallon tank, and it ll off the same again with the EPA its engine-on operation at 37 miles per While that s not as good as the Toyota Prius, the Volt is faster, and a whole lot more fun to

The actual effective MPG a Volt depends entirely on how much the can travel on battery power from the grid versus gasoline. A handful of Volt who plug in regularly, and travel short distances, report mileage well over 100 mpg and a few complain that the Volt s maxes out at 250+ mpg.

In the Volt s chunky, slab-sided isn t to everyone s taste. The windows are the cowl is very high, and the is high enough that the has a two-part rear window, like the Toyota Prius. We re not of the obviously fake silver its largely blank panel a of the twin-opening Chevy front

But by now, we re used to the styling, and the Volt is hardly as iconic as the Prius, it s noticeable and attracts its own

Inside, the digital instrument and the central display screen excellent graphics that convey as much or as little information as the driver chooses. The seats are comfortable, though in the rear is tight, and the controls are to understand. The twin-cockpit dash many controls recognizable the Cruze, but in a more upscale

Flashy abstract patterns on and interior panels are an option, as are a white-plastic dash treatment looks like nothing so as an Apple consumer electronics

The 2013 Volt is a top safety of the Insurance Institute of Highway and received top ratings from the IIHS and the National Highway Safety Administration. The battery and systems are warrantied for eight or 100,000 miles, far longer most gasoline powertrains. with cars built in 2012, Chevy added around the battery pack and changed the coolant filler for the to avoid the remote possibility of fires in the days or weeks a severe accident.

But no Volts experienced battery fires on the and while Chevy is offering a to owners of Volts built 2010 and 2011, it s a voluntarily not a safety recall.
