If you love looking at stars for your 2014 New Years resolution, you won’t need a telescope to inspect this beauty. We’re talking about the debut of the 2014 Chevy Volt gas and electric Hybrid, folks. That “winning quinella” has come together forming the perfect 4-Star marriage that tells you its electric when you want it, and gas when you need it. With Volt drivers averaging about 900 miles between plug-ins, drivers can pretty much thumb their nose at the gas pumps passing by. So is it any wonder that the 2014 Chevy Volt is ranked 9th in Hybrid cars, and gets an overdose of “oohs and aahs” from those who have had the opportunity to view the Volt?
There is no doubt that 2014 Volt owners will be some of the happiest drivers in the world. And if you’re a newbee in the world of hybrid/electric cars and the word “Hybrid” scares you because you may be a tad short on how the electric and lithium-ion battery works, just ask the specialists at SW Engines for your own personal how-to primer. These guys pretty much wrote the book on new and used engines, so you’ll be able to get plugged in on how everything works in no time.
The fact is if you can drive and have at least one finger that works, you can drive a 2014 Chevy Volt. Why you may ask? Well first you don’t need a key. You simply push a button. We knew you ladies would like that! Another error-free plus is you are not required to look at any dials or speedometer needles. With the 2014 Chevy Volt Hybrid, those two items have now become “persona non grata.” Your only driving chore is to check two interactive LCD screens that deploy feedback on four driving modes where you can easily switch back and forth to suit your personal driving style.
By now you may be thinking about costs and EPA estimates involved in buying a 2014 Chevy Volt Hybrid. Well the Chevy Volt has a pair of electric motors plus a gasoline engine that serves as a “backup” generator for the motors when the battery is depleted. And every reviewer checking the veracity of that statement agreed that the powertrain does provide the necessary power in all situations. Running on only electricity, the Volt comes in at approximately 98 mpg which is equal to other plug-in hybrids. But when the gas engine kicks in, the rating ranges between 35/40 mpg city and highway. So investigate and deliberate. But remember, for the cost of that Latte drink you love you can fully charge your Volt, and still get 38 mpg.
