2014 CHEVROLET VOLT: Continuing to be the best selling plug-in vehicle in the U.S., the Chevrolet Volt electric-powered car for 2014 will attract even more buyers with the new lower starting price of $34,995. As Chevy’s "antidote to pain at the pump," the front-wheel drive Volt five-door hatchback is unique from a hybrid or plug-in hybrid because the vehicle's wheels are always driven electrically by an electric drive unit. The 149 horsepower liquid-cooled AC motor and Voltec electric drive tranaxle is combined with a 1.4-liter four-cylinder, 84 hp gasoline engine. Based on EPA estimates, the Volt offers a total driving range of up to 382 miles. For the first 35 miles, the Volt can drive gas- and tailpipe-emissions free using a full charge of electricity. When the Volt's battery runs low, a gas-powered engine/generator seamlessly operates to extend the driving range another 347 miles on a full change. Volt offers a low-emissions package for single-occupancy lane access, body color roof and liftgate, pebble beige leather-appointed seats with suede inserts, and special Comfort and Safety packages. Chevrolet MyLink includes Bluetooth streaming audio for music and select phones; standard AM/FM stereo with CD player and MP3 playback. Two seven-inch, high-resolution full-color screens are featured: One is a reconfigurable graphic cluster display and the other, in the center stack, features a touch-screen display with touch-control switches and integrated shifter. Available 17-inch sport alloy wheels feature black inserts. The four-passenger interiors add two additional accents, white and spiced red, with 10.6 cu. ft. of cargo room. Chevrolet introduces two new colors – Ashen Gray Metallic and Brownstowne Metallic for the 2014 model year – and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. Chicago Auto Show fact: Consumer voters at the 2010 show proclaimed the 2011 Chevrolet Volt the Chicago Auto Show "Best Green Vehicle."
