The Chevrolet VOLT has been the focus of countless media stories over the past several years. In fact, during the darkest days of General Motor’s bankruptcy filing, the VOLT became a becon of hope for many GM insiders, who saw this vehicle as a way to re-invent the image and reputation of General Motors as a world leader in Automotive Technology.
Shortly after the original VOLT concept was unvieled in January of 2007, Dr. Lyle Dennis began writing and publishing articles on his own private website – www.gm-volt.com. Although a full-time physician, Lyle is a highly-committed advocate for widespread use of alternative energy and petroleum displacement, and believes the adoption of this vehicle will have a tremendously positive impact both on this country and the world as a whole. Although he has some engineering background, Lyle does not in any way work for General Motors (GM) or the car industry at all. The success of his website and the grass roots publicity it has generated for the Chevrolet VOLT, is a testament to a brilliant idea executed to perfection.
There is no doubt in Dr. Lyle Dennis’s mind, nor ours here at KARL Chevrolet, that the Chevy VOLT is both a concept and a vehicle whose time has come. We believe the VOLT will just be the beginning of the electification of the automobile as we know it and a move toward United States Energy independence. Drivers from all over Connecticut and New York will find that the VOLT provides a sense of freedom that people have never experienced. By simply plugging in overnight, most drivers will be free from a regular stop at the gas station – and those savings will quickly begin to add up!
Our staff here at KARL Chevrolet is committed to becoming the Metro New York area’s leading authorities on VOLT sales and service information. We look forward to assiting you and providing a full explaination of the Chevy VOLT’s advanced features and capabilities. Thanks for visiting!
