The Chevrolet Volt is the 2016 Green Car of the Year!

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.2016-chevrolet-volt-electric-car-mo-intro-1480x551-02

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)2016-Chevrolet-Volt-010

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!2016-chevrolet-volt-reveal-mo-design-1480x520-07

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.2016-chevrolet-volt-reveal-mo-design-1480x520-02

Your Chevy ‘fuel efficient, hybrid’ Options

Fuel prices are high… and they’re not going to drop drastically any time soon, or ever. As fuel prices continue to rise, customers are more interested in fuel-efficient compacts and hybrids to find relief from the pump.

A recent survey of car shoppers on kbb.com found that 51% of respondents are now considering a smaller, more fuel-efficient vehicle, while 20% are considering an alternative-fuel vehicle such as a diesel or hybrid. “GM’s strategic investments in four-cylinder and turbocharged engines, advanced transmissions and vehicle electrification have been very well timed,” said Mark Reuss, president of GM North America. “Three years ago, about 16 percent of the vehicles GM sold achieved at least 30 mpg on the highway. Today, that number is about 40 percent, and we have more new fuel-economy leaders on the way…”

What are the Chevy fuel economy leaders on sale today? Here is the lowdown:                   (all mpg totals are estimated)
