The range-extended car that operates on electricity from Chevrolet and is known as Chevrolet Volt has received the highest scores on owner satisfaction in comparison to all the other models sold by General Motors since the time it started to do customer surveys for its buyers. In fact, the features of Chevrolet Volt are so appealing that it has managed to draw new buyers who had not even thought of going for a Chevy earlier.
According to a report shared by GM, about 2/3rd of the Volt miles and eighty percent of Volt trips operate on chargeable batteries that can be charged by electricity though it has a relatively less range of about 35 to 38 miles. This indicates that here is a car that offers you all the benefits of electric running and there is no anxiety about its charge running out fast.
The reason for this feature is that Volt is powered by a 1.4 liter engine that is switched on if the battery charge is low and recharges it so that the car can move for over another 300 miles. Though the concept is great, it is quite complicated to market, advertise and market the same and General Motors have not had the success of doing any of that till date.
With the entry of Chevrolet Volt in the used-car segment, it seems to be a reliable and superior quality option for all such customers who prefer to drive an electric car for most of the times but also need an assurance that even when the battery is low, the car can move about another 250 miles continuously.

If you are someone who loves outdoor adventures and owns a first-generation Chevrolet Volt, there is a way to turn the Volt into a make-shift car camper for $30-$50. It is an inexpensive alternative to large RVs or hauling a camper with a pickup truck. If you are shorter than 6’4’’, you will comfortably fit inside the Chevrolet Volt. There are six easy steps to creating the “Volt-ebago.” First, you need to push and tilt the front seats as far as they can go. The second step is to remove the bottom of the rear seat and fill the empty space. Once the bottom is removed, lay the rear seat down. Next, extend the platform and lay down a camping mat. The last step is the easiest as it entails lying back, relaxing, and sleep comfortably. You can even create custom window covers with silver bubble insulation to darken the windows. Pine Belt Chevrolet in Lakewood sees this as a clever idea to have convenient and inexpensive outdoor adventures.
