Chevy Delivers First Bolt EVs to Customers

mm_gal_item_c2_2.img_resize.img_stage._3

In the San Francisco Bay this past December, Chevrolet delivered the first three Bolt EVs to customers, fulfilling the brand’s promise to offer a long-range electric vehicle at an affordable price.

“All of the hard work that the Chevrolet team have put into designing, engineering and building the Bolt EV brings us to this truly satisfying moment of making the first deliveries to customers on-time, as planned,” said Alan Batey, president of GM North America and Global Chevrolet brand chief. “Chevrolet is proud to offer a vehicle like the Bolt EV, with ground-breaking technology wrapped in a modern design that is also fun-to-drive at an affordable price.”

The first three customers to receive the highly anticipated Bolt EV are excited to take delivery and include:

  • William “Bill” Mattos, a retired law enforcement officer from Fremont, California, whose new Bolt EV becomes his third Chevrolet electric, after previously owning a Spark EV and second-generation Volt
  • Bobby Edmonds, a software developer with a family of four from Castro Valley, California, who replaces a BMW i3 with the Bolt EV
  • Steve Henry, a commercial real estate broker with a family of five from Portola Valley, California, whose new Bolt EV replaces a Toyota Prius

“The range and technology attracted me to the Bolt EV,” says Bobby Edmonds. “It’s also a great-looking, roomy vehicle and I love the fact it’s from an American brand. I look forward to the longer drives I can make compared to the i3 that I owned.”

Named the Motor Trend 2017 Car of the Year®, the Bolt EV offers an EPA-estimated 238 miles of range on a full charge, enabling owners to go beyond average daily driving needs with range to spare.

The Bolt EV begins at a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $37,495, which includes destination and freight charges, but excludes tax, title, license and dealer fees. Depending on individual tax situations, customers may receive an available federal tax credit of up to $7,500.

Standard features include electronic precision shift, Regen on Demand™ steering wheel paddle and 10.2-inch-diagonal color touch screen. The top-trim Premier model adds leather-appointed seats, front and rear heated seats, surround camera, rear camera mirror and more.

Bolt EVs are currently in transit to California and Oregon markets and are arriving this month. A national rollout begins in 2017, and a number of Northeast and Mid-Atlantic States including New York, Massachusetts and Virginia will see first deliveries this winter. Bolt EVs will arrive to more dealerships in additional major metro markets throughout the first half of 2017. The Bolt EV will be available at Bolt EV-certified dealerships across the United States in mid-2017.

A Look Into the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse

mm_gal_item_c2_1.img_resize.img_stage._1

Chevrolet has revealed its all-new, redesigned Traverse at the North American International Auto Show last month. The Traverse debuted back in 2008 as a 2009 model, so a complete redesign was due and had been expected by many Chevy commentators.

The 2018 Traverse will bring a lot to the table, but still retains the qualities that made the Traverse an ever-popular choice year after year.

Lots of Space

The spacious interior features supple touch surfaces and a Smart Slide second row seat that moves to allow easy access to the third row. The Traverse features 116.3 cubic feet of maximum storage space with 24.4 cubic feet behind the third row. You’ll still have plenty of room for luggage, even when the third row is being used. Access the cargo area through a power remote lift gate.

Technology

The 2018 Chevrolet Traverse features a USB port in the front center console and two in the rear, plus you can get an available rear seat entertainment system. Enjoy features such as Bluetooth, syncing your phone through a USB port, Internet Radio, Pandora and SiriusXM satellite radio. Use touch controls or your voice to access your favorite media and tunes.

Stay connected via a 6.5-inch diagonal color touch screen. Add RemoteLink Key Fob services through OnStar so you can remotely lock and unlock your vehicle and activate the horn and lights so you can easily find your vehicle.

Safety Features

Standard features include StabiliTrak electronic stability control, traction control, high-strength materials, the LATCH system for cars seats and six airbags. Available safety features include side blind zone alert, forward collision alert, rear cross traffic alert and more.

The Traverse also features OnStar with automatic crash response and OnStar Advisor, which uses GPS technology to request emergency help to be routed to your location.

The 2017 Silverado HD

ext_GBA_deg04x920

When you want a truck with a steel bed that will get that work done for you without denting, cracking or getting big holes in it, and a truck that can haul all you need to haul, the 2017 Silverado HD is the answer.

The New Hood and Intake

The 2017 Chevrolet Silverado HD comes with the optional 6.7-liter Duramax turbocharged diesel engine that takes advantage of a new hood and intake system to increase horsepower and torque. This engine makes 425 horse power and 800 pound-feet of torque, which gives it exceptional towing capacity.

The new hood and intake system dumps cooler air into the engine and Chevrolet has patented it because it has a way to remove moisture from the air. Cool dry air is always something engines could use more of to increase combustion. And, the more combustion you have, the more horsepower you’ll get.

How it Works

Once the hood scoop scoops up the air, it goes through an expansion chamber and then past a 180-degree turn into the intake manifold. The turn causes the velocity to change, thus “flinging” water molecules from the air with the centrifugal force of the turn. The water is then collected and drained via a valve. The drier air removes the downside of introducing ambient air into the intake manifold.

The new intake system allows air to enter the engine in two ways – through the hood and through another intake in one of the fenders. That way, if the hood intake is blocked, air can get in through the other intake in the fender. In addition to increasing the horsepower and torque production, the engine will run cooler.

Ergo Chairs on Chevy Assembly Line

There are new ideas forming all of the time for lots of different things. Some companies keep their newest developments and news secret until time to reveal. There are a few, however, that are willing to share everything with you upfront. Chevrolet is one of the ones that is always excited to bring you the latest and greatest news dealing with their brand. They are always on the lookout for new technology ideas and adjustments to their already stellar vehicles. Your local Newnan Chevy dealer wants to keep you in the loop on the newest articles.

The vehicles Chevrolet makes are fantastic and among the best in the industry. There is something else, though, that is making headlines. The workers that are assembling the new Traverse have been given a very unique tool to complete their work. That’s right, they have been fitted with a high-tech pivoting chair called the ‘Ergo Chair’ that raises them to the correct level in order to perform the duties necessary inside. These chairs are said to have the precision of a ballet dancer and are controlled by the body motions of the worker.

Each chair carries the correct number of parts needed to each job the individual performs. They are simply slid into position on the Ergo Chair, do what they have to do, and then are off to the next order. No longer do they need to crawl through openings or hard to reach places to perform their job functions. This newly developed invention for this company is groundbreaking and will give workers an improvement in safety and health while also improving quality of the vehicle.

So far, there are only two plants in the United States that have these awesome chairs. The plant at Lansing Delta Township and also the Spring Hill Assembly line in Tennessee both have seen these in their day-to-day operations. The Ergo Chair is currently being evaluated for use in assembly environments across America. The next time you load your friends and family up in your Chevrolet Traverse from SouthTowne Motors, remember all of the phenomenal work the amazing team performed thanks to the new robotic Ergo Chairs. Come see these fantastic SUVs today. We look forward to seeing you soon.
