Are you a potential electric vehicle buyer in the Stafford and Woodbridge areas? If so, Lindsay Chevrolet is here to inform you of a milestone the Chevrolet Volt recently celebrated that may convince you to stop by our 15605 Jefferson Davis Highway Woodbridge, VA 22191 location for a test drive.
Chevrolet reports that collectively, Volt drivers have traversed more than 100 million miles solely on electric power. The plug-in hybrid vehicle’s debut got a lot of attention in the automotive industry two years ago, and this month’s numbers are sure to bolster its acclaim. In fact, Volt owners spend an average of 65 percent of their driving time in electric mode, directly translating to money saved.
So how would the electric mode’s efficiency translate to less spending at the pump? Typical savings total out to around $1,370 per year. That’s a big chunk of change thanks to the 38 mile electric range and overall 37 mile per gallon rating. Let’s break down the money saved in a practical way. You could:
- Go to the movies 137 times at $10 per ticket (or 68 times if you bring a date)
- Purchase $151 worth of groceries for nine weeks
- Have your Chevy washed 228 times at $6 per wash
And that’s just the standard savings. Some Volt owners reported even higher numbers. In the ecological sense, they’ve kept about 5 million gallons of gasoline from being consumed, which is more than two supertankers can supply.
Have we convinced you yet? Stop by and see us soon to get out and drive a Volt. And remember to stay tuned to our Chevy blog for more news and updates like this one.
