2011 Chevrolet Volt Long Term Road Test

2011 Chevrolet Volt: Electric to Pedal Power

April 04, 2011


This weekend I took Emma and her 20-inch beach cruiser down to the beach to do some cruising. I was surprised how easily her bike fit in the back of the Chevy Volt, still allowing one seat to remain in an upright position.

After we parked on Ocean Avenue, an older man stopped as I was removing her bike from the car.

"Is that fer when yer car runs outta juice?" he asked.

Seems he knew enough about the Volt to understand the electric part, but not enough to know about the gasoline-engine part.
