How to be Eco-Friendly and Stylish

With the price of gasoline continuing to rise, now is the best time for car buyers to take advantage of General Motors’ 25 percent discount on the new Chevy Volt. Most dealerships should provide all the details of their in-stock Volts, complete with videos and enough photos for a consumer to know exactly what they want before arriving at the Tucson dealership.

Mind on the Eco, And Eco on the Mind

The eco-friendly vehicle has a fuel efficiency rating of 101 miles-per-gallon in the city and 93 on the highway. Of course, these numbers will vary, and are contingent on having a fully charged battery as much as possible. Drivers can expect to get up to 50 miles per gallon when no electrical charge is present, which is still near the top of all cars in its class. You can get a lot of road tripping and family visiting with the MPG on this baby.

All Volts come with the same convenience features, such as air conditioning, power windows and remote keyless entry. A CD Player, MP3 decoder and a total of six speakers, provide a sound system compatible with every taste in music and other audio entertainment. The Volt seats four people, with bucket seats in both the front and back.

Bang for Your Buck

The 2013 Volt comes with a basic 36 month/36,000 mile warranty and also 60 month/100,000 mile power train coverage. Every new Volt also comes with roadside assistance up to 100,000 miles and protection from corrosion for 72 months/100,000 miles. The ticket price is listed at $31,645 but this is before the incentives GM is offering. The website contains a financing calculator, allowing potential buyers to figure out their monthly payment based on the amount of the down payment and 2.9 percent annual percentage rate financing. Midway Chevy in Tucson also offers a 36 month lease on some models, with monthly payments as low as $299 per month. These and other dealerships offer great opportunities to be eco-friendly.

Looking Sharp

The Chevy 2013 Volt Hatchback comes in both jet black and summit white exteriors, with jet black and white interiors. The four-door hatchback model has many customizable options. The premium trim package adds heated front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and premium door trim. Chevrolet MyLink, the “infotainment” system available in most new Chevy vehicles, allows drivers access to Pandora radio, OnStar roadside service and remote control of their smart phones. Customers may also request front and rear park assist, which will warn the driver by way of high frequency beeps when objects are approaching the vehicle too closely or too fast. This feature automatically activates whenever the car is in reverse and when it is in drive traveling up to 5 miles per hour. All of these options are available in every Volt on the lot. Who doesn't want to be eco-friendly and have a stylish ride?
