Not Ready for an EV? Try the Chevy Cruze!
It's not very hard to see that car-buying trends these days are leaning towards fuel economy and sustainability. As such, it's no big surprise that plug-in electric hybrid models like the 2012 Chevrolet Volt have become so popular. However, not every driver out there is ready to commit to a plug-in hybrid model, which is why there are models out there like the Volt, which offer superb fuel economy and efficient design.
We here at Dellenbach Motors are big fans of either model, as we know that they represent the best of what the American automaker has to offer. We can, however, understand the hesitancy that some drivers may have over switching from a gasoline-powered vehicle to a partially electric vehicle like the Volt. After all, the tech that's seen in the Volt is very new, and with new technology comes a premium price that reflects the cost of development.
That price, however, tends to decrease as the adoption rate picks up. But, in the meantime, drivers who're waiting for the Volt to drop in price a little can feel confident behind the Chevrolet Cruze, which is, after all, the 11th best-selling car in the U.S., for September, surpassing even the Corolla.
Drivers who do worry about price can rest assured that the Cruze prices in at around 14,925 less than the Volt. Furthermore, according to Mark Reuss, CEO, GM North America, the Cruze is the perfect alternative for those who are interested in "plug-in-like mileage."
Cant the Cruze really deliver "plug-in-like mileage"? Well, the Chevy Cruze Eco is capable of delivering 42 miles per gallon on the highway, so while it's not an exact match to the Volt, it's an incredible estimate for a vehicle that isn't even a hybrid model.
