I was just chatting with a couple customers in our showroom, who were looking at the Chevy Volt, and they asked me, “Can I really get 95 miles a gallon?”…and it reminded me of this article that was just posted by Chevrolet in the News last week:
"As demand for the groundbreaking Chevrolet Volt continues to grow, so does the number of owners who are letting Chevy know just how far they can go on a gallon of gas—or no gas at all. In fact, just part way through this summer, Volt owners had already covered more than 1.2 million miles on electricity alone.
They include Kory Levoy, a manufacturing manager from Yorba Linda, Calif., who had been spending $50-$60 every week putting gasoline in his Audi TT roadster. But since buying his new Volt, he has covered 7,500 miles and had to fill up the tank just three times. Today, Levoy—like many other Volt drivers—is averaging 40 miles of driving range on a single charge, allowing him to cover his 25-mile round-trip commute entirely on electricity.
“I was tired of spending roughly $200 plus a month on gas,” said Levoy. “The ability to not even consider finding a gas station or worry about fuel pricing is a phenomenal experience.”
Seeing is believing! So my question to the couple now, and to those of you considering buying a Chevrolet Volt: What would you do with an extra $200 a month? It's hard to resist, right?
