Chevy Volt Drivers Report 1,000 Miles on a Tank of Gas

Chevy Volt Drivers Report 1,000 Miles on a Tank of Gas

When it was launched last year, the Volt marked a distinct shift from the traditional gas-electric hybrid concept .

It’s a transitional approach that can help mainstream car buyers make the leap into electricity, in addition to appealing to green consumers. Regardless of who is buying the car, the strategy is paying off.
