Reduce your carbon footprint with our lineup of sustainable Electric & Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles in London!
Are you concerned about your carbon footprint?
Finding a more sustainable, environmentally-friendly mode of transportation - like an Electric Vehicle - is certainly one of the most effective ways to address your carbon footprint. Most of the main auto manufacturers now offer an Electric Vehicle (or EV). EVs are far more efficient than their gas-powered brethren and they produce fewer greenhouse gases. Up until now, the primary downside of Electric Vehicles has revolved around their considerable expense along with the limited availability of charging stations. However, the province of Ontario has recently made a commitment to embracing Electric Vehicle technology and is taking steps to make the switch simpler, more convenient and most cost-effective. By making EVs more affordable with financial incentives and increasing the availability of fast-charging stations throughout Ontario, our roads are certain to see an increase in Electric and plug-in Electric Hybrid vehicles moving forward forward.
General Motors is ahead of the pack
The most popular member of GM's Green vehicle fleet is certanly the Chevrolet Volt, which was introduced as a Hybrid-electric vehicle back in 2010. With a new design for 2017, the new Volt features an 85 km electric charge range and a new batter that delivers 20% more energy by volume, as well as 4G LTE with onboard Wi-Fi. General Motor's Green Vehicle segment is rounded out with the Chevrolet Bolt and Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid.
Plug-in Hybrid vs. Pure Electric
Unlike Electric Vehicles which run exclusively on battery power, Plug-in Hybrid vehicles use both electricity and gasoline. As mentioned above, the Chevrolet Volt is one example of the Plug-in Hybrid segment as it comes equipped with a backup gas engine although it is also capable of running solely on electricity as well. This makes the Plug-in Hybrid an ideal choice for long range road trips, as Chevrolet Volt drivers average 75% of their mileage in all-electric mode although they also have the ability to extend their range indefinitely by switching over to the gasoline backup.
