Renault Fluence is UK’s cheapest EV, but if you want something more classy, more fashionable, and more usable, then you gotta have the Chevy Colt for £28,545.
Like all other electric vehicles, that price is effective after the £5,000 government grant. To arrive in UK in early 2012. the Volt has an electric range of just 30 and 50 miles depending on terrain and traffic conditions. But when other EVs need to be plugged in after that distance, the Volt can keep going for another 600 miles or so (U.S. Spec) thanks to its range-extender engine.
All Right-Hand-Drive UK Volts will come with full leather interior as standard. Look for the car at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
“We wanted to back up a century of progress with our vision for the next century,” said Chevrolet UK Managing Director, Mark Terry. “Except it’s more than a vision, it’s a reality.”
“The Volt is a truly incredible car – the first ever compromise-free electric car with zero-emissions capability. You can use it for going to work and back during the week without ever putting fuel in, but it’s also an electric car that you can use for a family holiday. There are never any concerns that a flat battery will leave you stranded.”
