Automotive EV Technology: Chevy Changes the Way We Drive

Chevy Volt

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.

Chevrolet Listed Twice On Ward’s Auto Best Engines List

If there’s one thing that Chevrolet knows, it’s engines. After all, it was Chevy that originally created the Chevy V8 small block. There have been 100,000,000 Chevy small block engines produced since the engine was designed in 1995.

These days, Chevrolet is still cranking out highly capable and highly innovative engines and not without notice. Two Chevy engines recently made their way on the prestigious Ward’s Auto Best Engines list.

For one engine that made the list, the recognition proves that Chevrolet is still on top of their performance/sports car game. The 3.6-liter V6 featured in the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro gives you more bang for your buck, according to what they found over at Ward’s Auto. The director of content at Ward’s Auto says, “The 3.6 delivers the kind of power and lusty exhaust note you associate with a V-8 for the price of a V-6.”

2016 Chevy Camaro

The 2016 Chevy Camaro was named to the Ward’s Auto Best Engines List.

For the other engine that made the list, it proves that Chevrolet is fully embracing the evolving landscape of the automotive market. The Voltec propulsion system featured in the 2016 Chevrolet Volt represents the second-generation of the technology. Ward’s Auto: “General Motors has taken what already is the most innovative and disruptive propulsion system in the auto industry and made it lighter, stronger and a lot more fun to drive.”
