Automotive EV technology is the future of vehicle engineering, offering better fuel economy, lower emissions, and, in some cases, optimal performance. Models like the Chevrolet Volt provide eco-friendly mobility options for those looking to reduce their carbon footprint as much as possible.
According to the Orange County Breeze, the local community is already ramping up efforts to improve the nature of power and energy in the area. An advanced team from prestigious organizations around the state are teaming up in Huntington beach, along with nearly $2 million in donations, to help design high-efficiency and sustainable energy technologies in the area.
Similarly, automakers like Chevy are working on a much larger scale to change the way we think about driving. The 2017 Chevrolet Volt, for example, has a high-efficiency hybrid-electric powertrain that gets up to 420 miles in range. You can go up to 53 miles on pure electricity, and you can go 1,000 miles between fill-ups.
The Chevrolet Volt was recently named the Green Car of the Year by the Green Car Journal, proving just how great this new model is. Hybrid-electric models drastically reduce harmful CO2 emissions by relying on electric power, and they also save you tons of money at the pump. Refined charging systems limit the time you spend recharging the battery, and great new features like a Power Flow screen show you where energy is going as you drive.
