2011 Chevrolet Volt Review & Price, this is a latest car reviews from Chevrolet, So what exactly is the 2011 Chevrolet Volt? It is a question we get all the time. A confusing series of claims and rumors are swirling around this car since he debuted as a concept a few years back, so we’re not surprised that people are not clear about what the Volt is all about. Here’s the long and short of it: The Volt is a four-seat, four-door series-parallel plug-in hybrid sedan with a lithium-ion battery that can power the car 149-horsepower (111 kW) electric motor by posing as an estimated 40 miles in the city. After that gasoline-powered inline-4 engine delivers electricity to the main engine up to 300 extra miles. All told, the Volt is the most advanced hybrid to date and perhaps the most economical car you will be able to buy.
It all depends on how you drive. Suppose you have a 20-mile round trip commute, and you plug in your Volt every night when you get home (a full charge takes just 3 hours).Congratulations! Your consumption is infinite, because you never get the battery completely down. But if you have a 100-mile commute, you will drive at least 60 miles per day under gasoline power, so you’ll need to refuel on a regular basis. Edmunds and a fuel consumption test of a depleted battery volt, the car returned only 31.4 mpg in mixed driving. That is far below the typical fuel consumption by other hybrid vehicles.
