HOV-lane access is a coveted perk in California
Fairfield, CA (PRWEB) December 23, 2011
Marin’s new chevy at Fairfield Chevrolet Announces a Low Emissions Package that qualifies the 2012 Chevrolet Volt electric car to access California's High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) traffic lanes will be standard on all models sold in California early next year. Owners of a 2012 Volt with the Low Emissions Package will be eligible to apply for one of 40,000 HOV-lane stickers issued to vehicles that qualify as a California Enhanced, Advanced Technology – Partial Zero Emissions Vehicle. The HOV-lane stickers are handed out on a first apply, first served basis.
“HOV-lane access is a coveted perk in California,” said Chris Perry, vice president of Global Chevrolet Marketing. “The low-emissions Volt will be a strong draw for drivers who commute daily in the most-congested driving environments in the United States.”
Additionally, the new Low Emissions Package makes the 2012 Volt eligible for owners to receive up to $1,500 in state rebates through California’s Clean Vehicle Rebate Project. This incentive is in addition to the Federal Government's $7,500 tax credit.
The Volt has a total driving range of up to 379 miles, based on EPA estimates. For the first 35 miles, the Volt can drive free of gas and tailpipe emissions by using a full charge of electricity stored in its 16 kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery. When the Volt's battery runs low, a gas-powered engine/generator seamlessly operates to extend the driving range another 344 miles on a full tank. Volt owners have travelled more than 10-million miles since the vehicle launched late last year. Grid electricity powered roughly two-thirds of those miles.
Fairfield Chevrolet is now taking orders for the Enhanced, Advanced Technology – Partial Zero Emissions Vehicle version of the Volt.
