2012 Chevrolet Volt Charging
At Art Gamblin Motors in Enumclaw Washington, we are eager to offer the easily charged 2012 Chevrolet Volt. Charging a Chevrolet Volt is simple, efficient and inexpensive. You can charge your new Chevrolet Volt with a standard 120V dedicated household outlet. This is the common circuit found in most homes and will take about 10 hours to fully charge your Volt. A faster way to charge your Volt is with a 240V dedicated outlet. This is the same type of household outlet used for clothes dryers. This type of outlet will charge your Volt in just 4 hours. Chevrolet’s home charging partner, SPX, offers a 240V charging station that can be installed in your home as well. The Volt is also equipped with a standard charging system that allows it to use any public charging station.
Electricity is a very cost-effective way to power your vehicle. Factoring in the average price of electricity in America, it only costs around 1.50$ per day in electricity costs to travel up not 40 miles daily in a Chevy Volt. 1.50$ is already an extraordinarily low cost, but even this small expense can be reduced through the Volt’s delayed rate of departure charge setting. In this charging mode the Volt calculates charging time based on utility peak costs and your planned departure time as well. The delayed departure time charging mode charges your Volt based on your indicated schedule. Finally, the immediate charging mode begins charging as soon as the Volt is connected to an outlet. Although charging a Chevy Volt is most efficient when done regularly, your Chevy Volt will still function regularly on a charge even after months of not being plugged in.
Between the many charge options, charge modes and efficiency of charging used by the Volt; we are confident at Art Gamblin Motors that a new Chevrolet Volt can easily fit into anyone’s busy lifestyle. So come give the Volt a test drive with us today in our pressure-free environment and let our friendly expert sales associates answer all your questions.
