Bringing the best of what consumers expect from their new vehicles in 2017 to the forefront in today’s market takes more than just flashy features and a nice paint job. Today’s consumers are looking for more on all fronts, from safety to tech to raw performance power. But ask the average driver what’s most important on a daily basis and they’ll likely have the same answer across the board: efficiency. That’s why so many manufacturers have embraced the rise of the hybrid, offering new and better hybrid options over the last decade – all the way up to this year’s impressive hybrid selection, which provides more and better options than ever before.
But when it comes to providing the best hybrid options around, few can compare to Chevy. That’s because Chevy took the hybrid market by storm in 2017 with two seriously impressive updates to the already well-respected Chevy models found at Chevy dealers near Columbus, Ohio. Enter the 2017 Chevy Malibu Hybrid, a reinvention of a classic nameplate that offers amazing efficiency, and the 2017 Chevy Volt, a relative newcomer which has stolen the show with its amazing electric range and impressive performance capabilities.
Regardless of which of these hybrid Chevys is your favorite, there’s no doubt that 2017 will be remembered as the year Chevy took the hybrid to the next level.
The 2017 Chevy Malibu Hybrid: A Seamless Combination of Form and Hybrid Function
Combine an iconic Chevy model, redesigned and reborn for a modern audience, with some of the most impressive hybrid tech we’ve seen in a full-size sedan to date and you’ve got a hybrid vehicle that even Dad can be proud of. Packing an impressive a 1.8L hybrid engine that offers a whopping 49 MPG highway, the 2017 Chevy Malibu sets a new standard for what drivers can expect when they get behind the wheel of this long-beloved nameplate.
Add in hybrid-exclusive features like the Driver Efficiency Gauge, which provides feedback on how your driving habits affect fuel economy, and you’ve got one remarkably user-friendly Chevy that helps you get the most out of every drop of gas in the tank.
The 2017 Volt: Prioritizing Electric Range for Unbelievable Hybrid Range
Of course, as impressive as combined hybrid power may be, it simply can’t touch the fuel-efficient savings of the all-electric range of the 2017 Chevy Volt. Capable of hitting an incredible 238 miles on electric power alone, this capable little hybrid really does open a new chapter in what consumers can expect out of a hybrid model. Able to eschew gas completely and capable of charging in just 4.5 hours with the available 240-volt charger, this eco-friendly Chevy is the right choice for any commuter sick of having to fork over gas money every few hundred miles.
The Volt also works to extend its own range while on the road thanks to impressive regenerative braking technology, which captures the kinetic energy normally lost to the enviroment while braking, and stores it in the battery for power later on down the road. That means the longer you drive, the more you’ll save – and that feels great no matter where you may find yourself.
These Chevy hybrids are the real deal, and it seems highly likely that the era of the hybrid may someday trace its origins back to 2017 with the stylish 2017 Malibu Hybrid and the forward-thinking 2017 Volt. Try them out for yourself and see just how quickly you too will be willing to get on board the hybrid power bandwagon.
