It’s On: 2012 Chevrolet Volt Begins Phoenix Launch

Share Article

Chapman Chevrolet offers the first electric car that runs on more than electricity.

The Chevrolet Volt makes the electric driving experience for Phoenix commuters as productive, efficient, intuitive, safe and fun as any premium vehicle its size in the market today.

The innovative Chevrolet Volt went on sale last year and quickly earned praise from customers and industry observers alike. Now Arizonans will have an opportunity to visit Chapman Chevrolet in Phoenix to see for themselves why driving the Volt is a truly transformative experience.

“The Chevrolet Volt can handle both rush-hour commuting and longer trips, as Valley residents prepare for holiday travel,” said Chapman Chevrolet General Manager Tim Mort. “The Volt can be your primary vehicle, giving you the freedom to drive gas-free without the stress of planning every trip around the battery’s charge level.”

The five-door, four-passenger Volt is designed to provide the benefits of an electric vehicle without the range limitations associated with other electric vehicles in the market. To that end, the Chevrolet Volt is not a hybrid. It is a one-of-a-kind, all-electrically driven vehicle designed and engineered to operate in all climates, with a range of up to 379 miles.

“Arizonans are making a commitment to technology that will help reduce our dependence on petroleum,” said Mort. “In turn, we commit to offer the highest standards for value, safety, quality, performance and reliability to our Phoenix Chevrolet customers.”

Powered by GM’s revolutionary Voltec propulsion system, it consists of a 16-kWh lithium-ion battery pack and electric drive unit that provide pure electric range between 25 and 50 miles, depending on terrain, driving techniques and temperature. A 1.4L gasoline-powered engine extends the range up to an additional 344 miles (40 highway MPG, 35 city MPG) on a full tank of fuel by operating the vehicle’s electric drive system until the car can be plugged in and recharged or refueled. This distinguishes the Volt from electric-only vehicles, which cannot be operated when recharging is not immediately available – such as during a power interruption or on a long-distance trip.

“The Chevrolet Volt makes the electric driving experience for Phoenix commuters as productive, efficient, intuitive, safe and fun as any premium vehicle its size in the market today,” said Mort.
Every major element of the Volt was designed and analyzed for efficiency, including its highly aerodynamic exterior, lightweight wheels, specially designed tires, energy-saving premium stereo system, and more. This attention to detail makes the Volt one of the most aerodynamic and energy-efficient vehicles in the market.
