New Chevrolet Volt Gains Access to California Carpool Lanes

The Chevrolet Volt has been one of the hottest electric vehicles on the market ever since it first premiered back in 2011, so Chevy probably doesn’t even need to add incentives to customers to sell the next-generation Volt. But, out of the goodness of their hearts, they’ve stacked the new Chevrolet Volt with even more sales incentives than ever before anyhow. The most recent incentive—allowing single-occupant Chevy Volts access to the California carpool lane.

New Chevrolet Volt Gets Access to Carpool Lanes

This strategy of granting electric vehicle drivers carpool lane access has been very successful to electric vehicle sales, and Chevy hopes that success continues with their 2016 Volt plug-in hybrid model. After a year and a half on the market, the first generation Volt achieved carpool access status, but it appears the second generation model will get that privilege right from the start.

The carpool lane news isn’t the only good news, though. Recently, the Volt also received a large price reduction—Chevy lopped $1,175 off the car’s starting price. That brings the car’s starting price to just $33,995, but thanks to federal and local tax incentives, the Volt can be much more affordable even than that. Come see us here at Tom Naquin Chevrolet to learn more about the Volt today!

Mountain Movers Choose Chevrolet

Ever wonder how the venues of action sport competitions like the Winter Dew Tour, the Winter X Games, and the World Snowboard Championships happen?

Well, the answer is Snow Park Technologies.

With the help of Chevrolet, Snow Park Technologies has designed and built over 250 competition courses.

This spring, you will witness a documentary of the behind-the-scenes real-life drama of these builds in the new National Geographic Channel TV series, Mountain Movers.

“Snow Park Technologies works in the most remote locations under extreme conditions, exactly the type of programming NatGeo is famous for,” said award-winning television producer for Good Clean Fun Jason Carbone. “From avalanche control to building a half-pipe in blizzard conditions, Mountain Movers is going to take the viewer to locations and place them in experiences that are truly one of a kind.”

Viewers will travel with Snow Park Technologies to California, Colorado, Nevada, Utah, and even the East Coast.

Snow Park Technologies hauls the equipment and machinery necessary to move tons of snow in the harshest conditions. And, that is heavy duty work.

ESPN Winter X Games course designer and owner and president of Snow Park Technologies Chris “Gunny” Gunnarson said that his favorite part is his 2012 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD Dually.

“I know Chevy trucks can handle the heavy duty work we do, and in the nastiest environments a mountain can offer because I use them every day,” said Gunnarson.

Local Elkhart Indiana dealership, Tom Naquin, looks forward to see the capabilities of the Chevrolet Silverado in the series this spring.
