President Obama took the Chevy Volt, offered at Stalker Chevrolet, on a brief trip around the South Lawn.
Online PR News – 27-October-2012 – Creston, IA – As president and an advocate of the automotive industry President Obama is often seen behind the wheel of vehicles and taking pictures with them. However, as president he never gets to actually drive these vehicles.
For security reasons, the Secret Service handles all of the travel and driving arrangements for the president, former presidents, and their families.
President Obama has often given his praise of the Chevy Volt and its advanced technology and use of alternative energy sources. What the president wasn’t aware of was the performance, handling, and acceleration of the Volt.
While this “test drive” was quickly shut down by Secret Service officials, the president said in jest that, “That was my big joyride. Three times around the South Lawn driveway.”
General Motors recently announced that the Volt, offered at Stalker Chevrolet and dealerships around the country since 2010, would be getting a software update.
With an EPA estimated 37 MPG combined the 2013 Chevy Volt is extremely fuel efficient, and the enhance battery pack takes advantage of alternative fuel methods.
