2011 Chevrolet VOLT is Automobile of the year, announced by AUTOMOBILE Magazine. The award will be presented to Joel Ewanick, GM U.S. Marketing Vice President, on Wednesday at the Los Angeles International Auto Show.
The Chevrolet VOLT was named Automobile of the Year for many reasons, one of which was being the first mass-produced electric vehicle with an extended range. AUTOMOBILE Magazine editors wrote, “This is the most sophisticated, most important vehicle on the road today. It won’t just change what we drive, but also how we drive. Owners will plug in at night, heat or cool their cabin before they leave the garage, and adopt new driving styles to maximize their electric range. Then, when the battery is depleted, they’ll mindlessly motor on; free of the limitations that accompanies pure electric vehicles.”
Bob Maguire Chevrolet is extremely proud that the 2011 Chevrolet VOLT is Automobile of the Year. In the second quarter of 2011, Bob Maguire Chevrolet will be receiving its first VOLT model. So, ifyou have been interested in the VOLT and want to take it for a test drive, stop by Bob Maguire Chevrolet to take the VOLT for a spin or speak with a sales consultant about the vehicle, today, before it arrives!
“We are very grateful for this prestigious recognition from AUTOMOBILE Magazine,” said Ewanick, who drove a Volt 2,394 miles from Detroit to Los Angeles for the show. “Automobile of the Year is a testament to the pioneering technology of the Volt, as well as the talent, intelligence and hard work of everyone at GM who made it a reality.”
