The Chevy Volt is Collecting Awards

The Chevy Volt… named 2011 Motor Trend Car of the Year, the 2011 North American Car of the Year, was recommended by Consumer Reports, and earned the highest safety ratings in 2011 from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) in the first-ever U.S. crash test evaluations of plug-in electric cars.

But the wins don’t stop there… the IIHS also named the 2012 Chevrolet Volt a Top Safety Pick for 2012. And Kelley Blue Book just announced the Chevy Volt wins the Kelley Blue Book Total Cost of Ownership Award in the Electric Car category!

The Chevy Volt isn’t just winning awards, it’s winning repeat owners! A few months ago Consumer Reports conducted a survey asking new car owners how likely they were to purchase the same vehicle again. In the case of the Chevy Volt, 93% said they would “definitely” buy the car again.

Yes, there was an issue with fires occurring in Chevy Volts that had been crashed as part of safety testing, but The U.S. government ended its safety investigation into the Chevrolet Volt after concluding that the Volt and other electric cars don’t pose a greater fire risk than gasoline-powered cars. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and GM know of no fires occurring in real-world crashes. NHTSA said Friday that it “continues to believe that electric vehicles show great promise as a safe and fuel-efficient option,” and based on available data, electric cars don’t appear to be riskier than gas-powered ones.

If you want to drive away a winner, don’t wait to win a car, buy a Chevy Volt. Stop by Bob Bell Chevrolet of Bel Air, we have the Chevy Volt on the lot and ready to go.
