Volt Drivers Have a Strong Community Behind Them

The Chevy Volt is the most fuel-efficient vehicle in the US, and Chevrolet of Homewood, one of Illinois’ Chevy dealerships, is proud to offer it to the surrounding area. During its short time on the market, the Volt has earned quite the strong following among its drivers. By using the VoltAge online community, Volt owners discuss the experiences with the vehicle, throw around questions, and plan events. The Green Revolution is upon us!

Getting Greener, Together

2012 Chevrolet Volt

The Volt is a hybrid vehicle that combines an electric motor and a gasoline engine to achieve maximum fuel economy. The battery can be simply charged by a 120v or 240v outlet right in your garage, taking less than three hours! Using only battery power, the Volt is capable of traveling 25 to 30 miles and up to a speed of 100mph. After the battery is depleted, the gasoline engine seamlessly kicks in and carries the car for the rest of your journey. Running on electrical power is cheaper than gasoline, too. Charging the battery only costs an average of $1.50 each charge period; much cheaper than the gas equivalent to travel the same 25 to 30 miles.

The VoltAge community site is not only for Volt owners but also for those considering adding one to their garage. A portion of the site is dedicated to stories from Volt owners, containing written and video testimonials from drivers, with many positive things to say! Drivers connect here, trading tips about maximizing their fuel efficiency and about the future of fuel-efficient cars in our world. Recently, owners met up at the first paved road in America for the Woodward Avenue Dream Cruise, where dozens of Volts driving in formation was one of the key highlights of the event.
