2017 Chevy Volt Is Electrifying


“Sleek and high-tech” is how many reviews describe the 2017 Chevy Volt in Springfield. For the current model year, the plug-in hybrid gets an enhanced automatic emergency braking system and a longer list of options, including adaptive cruise control.

The Volt is offered in two trims: LT and Premier. Both models get a plug-in hybrid system that utilizes two motors, delivering up to 149 horsepower, thanks to its 1.5-liter gas engine and 18.4-kWh lithium-ion battery pack. Using a 240-volt charging station, the car can be fully recharged in as little as four hours.

The entry-level LT gets 17-inch wheels, LED headlights and taillights, keyless entry/ignition and remote start. Designed to keep you connected, the 2017 Volt also gets an 8-inch touchscreen with Chevy’s Mylink interface, Bluetooth and Apple CarPlay smartphone integration for iPhones. Other creature comforts like automatic climate control and leather-wrapped steering will also help you relax on the road.

More upscale amenity can be found on the Premier. It comes with a long list of standards such as heated rear outboard seats, a wireless charging pad for electronics and navigation. Leather upholstery, heated mirrors and front seats are also included. However, these items can all be had on the LT Comfort package as well.

With the ability to move you forward for more than 400 miles between fill-ups, the Chevy Cruze is a game changer in the plug-in hybrid market. Come test drive one today at Reliable Chevy!
