The Chevy Volt is the ultimate in energy efficient driving. With an estimated 38 gas free miles and up to 380 miles on a full tank and full charge, this stylish, five star safety-rated vehicle will get you where you need to go without draining your bank account. Many people are confused as to how this vehicle works, or feel that they don’t have the ability to charge it and utilize it correctly. There are over 100 charging stations throughout metro Detroit and chargepoint.com can help map out routes for you and show you where free charging stations are.
DTE Energy will also pay up to $2500 of the cost to install a charging system at your home, leaving the majority of volt owners with a $0 cost to have this system installed and see only a slight increase of $20-$40 on their DTE bill. Chris White, a new Chevy Volt owner, recently traded in his 2013 Cadillac XTS Platinum for a 2013 Chevy Volt. Chris is very impressed with his savings with the Volt.
“The DTE installation was hassle-free and cost me nothing, and there was hardly an increase on our first bill after I began charging the Volt,” Chris says of his first month driving. In one month, Chris has spent $34 in gas, and feels that was only because he missed a day of charging. “If I had kept the car fully charged I don’t think I would have had to put any gas in it yet.” With the Chevy MyLink infotainment system, Chris can sync his phone and music and get all of the information he needs about his car right on the big touchscreen on the dashboard. Of his Volt experience, Chris states that “It is very comfortable to drive and was not as big of an adjustment as I thought it would be coming from a full power vehicle. It’s awesome to save so much money without having to cut back on my driving. I am completely satisfied.” If you are thinking about making the switch, come in and find out how easy it really is!
