2016 Chevrolet Volt: Winner of the 2016 Green Car of the Year Award at the L.A. Auto Show

The Next-Generation 2016 #chevrolet #volt was awarded #green Car of the Year award from #green Car Journal today at the #losangeles #auto Show. This is the second time the #volt has won the award.

The #volt, which started arriving in dealerships this fall, also won the award when it debuted in 2010 as a 2011 model. #green Car Journal praised the Volt’s increased range, all-new propulsion system and bold design.

The #green Car of the Year award is determined by an 11-member panel, and is based on fuel efficiency, Environmental Protection Agency and California Air Resources Board certifications, performance and affordability. Other criteria include availability and accessibility.

The other finalists were the Audi A3 e-tron, Honda Civic, Hyundai Sonata and Toyota Prius.

“Chevrolet’s all-new #volt is a milestone, building on an already-technologically advanced ‘green’ car and delivering what buyers have longed for, including an impressive 53-mile driving range on a single charge,” said Ron Cogan, editor and publisher of #green Car Journal and CarsOfChange.com.

“A visually appealing design, increased five-passenger seating, and an array of on-board electronics combine with the Volt’s inherent efficiencies to make the 2016 #chevrolet #volt a real winner,” Cogan said.

The all-new #volt delivers a total driving range of up to 420 miles. Combined with EPA-estimated fuel economy of 42 mpg highway, #chevrolet expects owners to travel 1,000 miles between gasoline fill-ups.

“Chevrolet is all about bringing affordable electrification to our customers, and that is exactly what we did with the Volt” said Steve Majoros, #chevrolet marketing director. “For #volt to stand out in #green Car’s evaluation, it reaffirms Chevrolet’s commitment to being a leader in electrification.”

According to independent surveys, #volt owners are the most satisfied in the industry, and 70 percent of those owners are new to General Motors.
