The Chevrolet Volt electric hybrid plug-in car, released two years ago, has quickly risen to a surprising position in the market. In August, it set a monthly sales record of 13,497 units and still may be going up. At its current position of 133rd top selling car in the United States, the Chevrolet Volt ranks above many premium sedans, well-regarded sports cars, and most hybrid/electric vehicles. Although the number 133 seems high, it means the Volt is outselling more than half of the car models in the US, quite impressive in only two years. With more cars being sold, the closer the Chevrolet Volt gets to becoming a consistent mainstream Chevrolet model.
The technology of the 2013 Chevrolet Volt improves from its already impressive 2012 model. The new version includes a Hold driving mode for drivers to conserve battery power for optimal efficiency. Drivers can utilize this function by enabling the gas-powered engine on the highway. Then the driver can switch back to an all-electric mode off the highway so no gasoline is wasted in city driving situations.
Another benefit consumers are noticing is the public 240-volt power charging stations. These can be found in parking lots and parking structures of some progressive cities and towns. Drivers can plug in their electric vehicles to charge for no cost, significantly lowering the cost of ownership.
Current Volt owners and reviewers credit the car for its sound. Most sound systems compete for attention with loud, car-produced noise pollution. In contrast, the Chevrolet Volt runs with very little noise to produce a calming drive. When matched with its ultra-high-end 38 speaker English sound system, this quiet electric car allows for a better sound stage than other cars.
