Motor Trend Magazine has just named the Chevy Volt as its 2011 Car of the Year. Motor Trend says that the Chevy Volt has some of the greatest technology ever implemented into an American made car, and still has a very reasonable price tag.
According to MSNBC, the Chevy Volt can run for up to 50 miles on its electric charge before it switches to the backup gas engine.
The Volt isn’t on sale yet, but when the Chevy Volt hit’s dealerships next month, it will cost $33,500 with a federal tax credit. But with its 50 mile electric range, it should end up costing less than most hybrids.
Motor Trend Magazine awarded the Car of the Year award in 2010 to the Ford Fusion.
