When it comes to automobiles of the future, the sales team at Briggs Supercenter like to stay up to date on all the latest. As the leading used car dealer in Manhattan, Kansas and surrounding areas, they were very excited about the next generation EN-V concept vehicle from GM.

“For 100 years, the Chevrolet brand has been focused on making advanced technology that improves customers’ lives accessible and affordable, and the Chevrolet EN-V will continue that tradition,” said Chris Perry, vice president, global Chevrolet marketing and strategy to the media last month.
The Chevrolet EN-V is an award-winning vehicle. The name is short for Electric Networked-Vehicle. It is a two-seat, electric urban mobility concept vehicle that uses the basic principle of personal mobility. And freedom is something modern consumers love.

“By 2030, more than 60 percent of the world’s 8 billion people will live in urban areas,” he continued, “The Chevrolet EN-V represents a possible solution for global customers living in markets where alternative transportation solutions are needed.”

The new EN-V is basically a zero-emissions vehicle that will be powered by lithium-ion batteries. It will recharge using a conventional wall outlet. By utilizing standard household power, the EN-V can go quite a bit on a single charge.

“The Chevrolet EN-V has the potential to reinvent transportation in key markets by creating a new vehicle DNA through the convergence of electrification and connectivity,” said Chris Borroni-Bird, GM’s director of Advanced Technology Vehicle Concepts.

The EN-V combines both GPS tech with vehicle-to-vehicle communications and distance-sensing technologies. The result is the EN-V can be driven manually or autonomously. In the latter mode, EN-V will offer mobility to those who might not normally drive a vehicle.

This technology platform of electric propulsion, sensors, wireless communications and GPS-based navigation is likely to migrate from the EN-V concept to other automobiles and could lead the way to safer, cleaner vehicles in the future,” said Borroni-Bird.

Local residents who want to find the best used cars in Lawrence, Kansas should stop by Briggs Supercenter. They have a great selection of the best of the past, but they are still keeping their eyes on the cars of the future like the EN-V because one day they will be used vehicles too. For now, any consumers who want their questions answered should stop in at Briggs Subaru.
