Car Description

The 2012 Chevy Volt is a fully electric vehicle that uses a small gas motor to charge the batteries if they start dropping to low. On a full charge the Volt can go about 35 miles, from there, using the gas generator the EV can then go another 344 miles. This makes the Chevy Volt a good vehicle for around town driving as well as giving you the security of knowing you won’t be running out of power too soon.

Even with the heavy price tag the Chevy Volt is well accepted by RV owners that would like to lower their foot print while traveling. The Volt is relatively light compared to many other vehicles and many RV park are installing EV chargers for their guests to charge their vehicles while enjoying the campground allowing them to travel to local sites without being too concern about finding a gas station.

New for 2012 is Chevrolet MyLink, which includes Bluetooth-enabled streaming audio for music and select smartphones, voice recognition for the phone, music and audio systems, Pandora and Stitcher smartphone compatibility, Gracenote (Playlist+ and Album Art) and software that can be updated for the Gracenote database.

Charging a Chevy Volt

The Chevy volt can be charged by a 120 volt household electric outlet or by a dedicated 240v charging station. That makes charging your Volt pretty convenient.
