2016 Chevrolet Volt Wins Green Car Of The Year
The all-new 2016 Chevrolet Volt is certainly on a roll. The critics have fallen in love with it, and demand is high enough that a nationwide rollout of the model had to be delayed until the 2017 model year. To add a cherry to the top of its sundae of success, the Chevy Volt has also been named the Green Car of the Year at the LA Auto Show for the second time in the model’s history.
The win is no small feat, as the Chevy Volt had to beat competitors like the Hyundai Sonata, Toyota Prius, and the Honda Civic. To make the accomplishment even sweeter, the Chevy Volt beat the Audi A3 e-tron, a luxury vehicle.
Chevrolet estimates that the Chevy Volt should be able to make it 1,000 miles before it needs a gasoline refill, thanks to the total driving range of 420 miles and EPA-estimated fuel economy of 42 mpg on the highway. Chevrolet is proud of the Chevrolet Volt and the response the latest generation has received. Its press release states: “According to independent surveys, Volt owners are the most satisfied in the industry, and 70 percent of those owners are new to General Motors.”
The Green Car of the Year award was presented by the Green Car Journal in partnership with the Los Angeles Auto Show. Take a look at our LA Auto Show landing page for more news about the debuts and awards at the event.
