A Green Ride

Chevy Silverado Hybrid Truck

Helping the environment is a challenge that a lot of people need a little direction on. It can be as simple, however, as sorting out your recycling and picking up trash when you see it. These are obvious steps we can all take while we are out on our morning walk or when bagging up garbage for trash day.

However, there are other ways in which we can help the planet. Even the vehicle we drive can make a huge difference on the environment. If you want to help reduce your carbon footprint even further, look into purchasing an eco-friendly vehicle from your Newnan Chevy dealer.

We have several great eco-conscious cars that get you where you need to go while putting out little or zero emissions into the atmosphere. We do this with our hybrid, electric and Flexfuel option models. Many people are familiar with the line of hybrids that Chevrolet has produced which now include the Silverado and the Tahoe. Other cars such as the Impala and the Cruze are becoming a popular option for eco-friendly consumers.

The new 2014 Chevrolet Cruze produces lower emissions due to the Turbo Diesel engine that still churns out at least 151 horsepower. This cleaner and greener vehicle has a highway range of 717 miles and receives 46 mpg highway. The engine has also been designed to reduce the vibration and noise associated to older versions of diesel cars.

One of the most popular cars on the market for electric use is the Chevrolet Volt. This car uses both electricity and gas but only when it’s needed. Many owners of this fantastic vehicle are averaging about 900 miles between fill-ups. There are apps you can connect to your Volt with that tell you just how much electricity you use and how much gas. There’s even an app that challenges you to keep your efficiency on point and set daily maximums. You can engage in a bit of friendly competition with other Volt owners as well to see who is more efficient.

The use of those apps make it fun to own an eco-friendly vehicle. To see more options, check with SouthTowne Motors today. We look forward to helping you find the perfect car for your ever-growing green needs. Happy Earth Day!
