MILFORD, Ohio, March 26, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- It would be hard to deny that something needs to change when it comes to the fuel that powers American vehicles. The old standard, gasoline, is becoming harder to find and more expensive every day. Solar power hasn't quite made enough technological leaps to viable. That pretty much leaves rechargeable battery powered vehicles as the most likely heir apparent to fossil fuels. General Motors and its Chevrolet subsidiary have always been on the leading edge of automotive innovation and once again they built something that could be answer to the next energy crisis with the 2013 Chevy Volt in Cincinnati.
The new Chevy Volt is what is known as a "plug-in" hybrid vehicle. This is very simple in concept, but has proven to perfect in execution. The bulk of the energy used by the 2013 Chevy Volt is provided by a lithium ion battery that would be largely recharged using equipment that would be kept at the owner's home. The batter that powers the Cincinnati Chevy Volt was developed in a partnership between General Motors and the Argonne National Laboratory at the University of Chicago. Battery power can be used for shorter trips around town and when the batteries are depleted, a gasoline powered range extender starts operation. The range extender works in a similar fashion to a standard gasoline-powered electric generator. All told, the 2013 Chevy Volt has a total range of about 300 miles.
Ride quality of the Chevy Volt near Cincinnati should be on same level as any compact sedan. Drivers and passengers will notice many of the same elements in the Volt as they would in a more tradition model like the Chevy Cruze or Chevy Sonic. Volt owners can expect standard features like LED running lights, automatic headlights, keyless entry and keyless start, automatic climate control and audio system that will rival any car in its class. One of the major Volt exclusive features is an almost all-digital gauge cluster that will provide real-time feedback on how driving habits are affecting fuel-economy.
