Joe Self Chevrolet of Wichita Kansas Expects Spike in Chevrolet Electric Vehicles

General Motors pledged to produce 500,000 electric vehicles annually by 2017. With this “Electrification Strategy,” Wichita Kansas should expect to see more electric vehicles populate the lots of local dealer, Joe Self Chevrolet.

Online PR News – 22-November-2012 – Wichita Kansas – In a grave attempt to secure the title of Greenest Automaker in the World, General Motors has initiated its Electrification Strategy.

General Motors is striving for excellent fuel efficiency across its entire Chevrolet fleet.

The major component of this strategy includes a General Motors pledge to produce up to 500,000 electric vehicles annually by 2017.

An electric vehicle does not necessarily equate to an all-electric vehicle or even a plug-in hybrid, but may also be defined as a vehicle with an engine that is powered by some form of electricity, such as the system eAssist that increases fuel economy by up to 25 percent for gasoline-powered vehicles.

With the plug-in hybrid Chevrolet Volt, the all-electric Chevrolet Spark EV, and several vehicles equipped with the eAssist system, Chevrolet has already begun its quest.

Over 50,000 electric vehicles have already been sold by Chevrolet this year.

As regulations tighten around the automotive industry and the Obama administration pursues its goal of 1 million battery-powered vehicles on the road by 2015, Chevrolet intends to extend its electrification technology to more vehicles in the future.

Joe Self Chevrolet is excited to offer future Chevrolet electric vehicles to Wichita Kansas and other surrounding cities. Stop by the dealership on East Kellogg at the Turnpike or call 316.768.4923 for more details.
