The 2015 LA Auto Show has been a blast so far: we’ve seen some amazing debuts from the Chevy Spark EV to the Honda Civic Coupe, 2016 is sure to be a great year for auto enthusiasts! Another thing we love about the Auto Show is the award announcements, and this year we paid extra-close attention to Green Car Journal’s Green Car of the Year. This year the Chevrolet Volt beat out some stiff competition including the Toyota Prius, Honda Civic, Hyundai Sonata and Audi A3 E-Tron for Green Car of the Year.
The Green Car of the Year award is from the Green Car Journal. Awarded annually, the winner is selected by automotive and environmental experts including the likes of Jay Leno, Mario Andretti, and Johnathan Lash. Winners in previous years have included the Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid (2008), Chevrolet Volt plug-in hybrid (2011), and the BMW i3 (2015)
Chevrolet’s plug-in hybrid proved technologically advanced and environmentally friendly with an electric range of 53 electric miles, 420 miles on a full charge and full tank of gas, and an expected over 1,000 miles between gas fill-ups by charging regularly. The new 2016 Chevrolet Volt is a stunner to look at, too, with a newly sculpted body designed to be more aerodynamic than ever before. Available with 4G LTE Wi-Fi, numerous safety innovations like lane assist, and an 8-inch color instrument panel, the Volt is a well-balanced, advanced model from inside-out!
The Chevrolet Volt truly stands out because you don’t have to compromise since the Volt is equipped with a high level of efficiency and range. You get all of the environmental benefits and fuel economy of an EV without sacrificing your commute to a plug-in. With a sleek design, quiet ride, and intuitive controls, the Chevrolet Volt is both technologically advanced and easy-to-use five-door hatchback.
