Online PR News – 05-April-2011 – – Don Ringler Chevrolet TX has been in business in Temple, TX since September of 1979. Don Ringler serving the Central Texas communities of Temple, Austin, Waco, and Killeen has announced its first 2011 Chevrolet Volt.

Introduction of 2011 Chevrolet Volt:
The New Chevrolet Volt is awarded with the 2011 Motor Trend Car of the Year. Volt[1] is an electric car with extended range that can use gas to create its own electricity. Volt uses a range-extending gas generator that produces enough energy to power it for hundreds of miles. Just plug it in to charge the battery, and most people can commute gas-and-tailpipe emissions-free for about $1.50 of electricity per day[2].

Volt is an electric vehicle with a range extender. Well, what does that mean? It means Volt runs off electricity from its battery, and then it runs off electricity it creates from gas. The Volt propulsion system is powered exclusively by electricity. When its battery runs out of charge, it uses a small amount of gas in its onboard generator to create more electricity. While hybrids and battery-only electrics will also help us reduce our dependence on petroleum, Volt is a solution that seems to have greater possibilities for the future.

[1] Select markets include California, New York, Washington D.C., Texas, Michigan, New Jersey and Connecticut. Quantities are limited.
[2] In moderate conditions, you should get from 25 to 50 miles of gas-free and tailpipe emission-free driving. Your results will vary depending on temperature, terrain, driving technique and battery age. Based on GM testing. EPA estimates are not yet available.
