Chevy Volt Named Car of the Year

Zero emissions vehicles are approaching. Chevrolet, Ford and Nissan are bringing EVs to the market in 2011.

Find green business solutions
Motor Trend has evaluated the year's new crop of cars and finds the Chevrolet Volt to be the best of the class for 2011.

Motor Trend drove the car for almost 300 miles, charging at night and going through a routine of freeway and stop-start city driving. The result was the use of 58.6 kilowatt-hours of electricity, plus 2.36 gallons of gas — equivalent to 72.9 mpg.

Automobile Magazine, which said the Volt is its first-ever electric winner, nonetheless also stepped out of performance mode and proclaimed EVs as “technology of the year.”

But there are choices that match different needs, and to provide diversity in suppliers. Ford’s first all-electric, zero emissions vehicle, the Ford Focus Electric, will go on sale in late 2011. The Chevy Volt and the Nissan Leaf will also be released with availability will be limited to certain markets.
