LOS ANGELES, Nov. 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Do you want to go electric, but you're wary about options like the Nissan Leaf because of their limited range? If so, your choice is clear: the 2012 Chevy Volt outclasses everything that has come before it, and now you can find it at MPG Car Rental, a company that deservedly dominates the green car rental market in Southern California. With an exciting addition like the Chevy Volt, the best car rental company in Los Angeles just got better!
So what exactly makes the Chevy Volt so special? First, we know you want to hear about its fuel economy. According to the Environmental Protection Agency's own tests, the Chevy Volt gets 93 mpg equivalent (MPG-e) in all electric-mode, 37 mpg in gasoline-only mode, and a combined gasoline-electric city/highway fuel economy of 60 mpg. That's a marked improvement over the Toyota Prius, which previously held the top spot as the most fuel efficient compact car in the United States.
The Chevy Volt's range on its battery is 35 miles, after which the gasoline engine kicks in for a further 344 miles. So if you live in the city or are visiting and plan to mostly take in the urban sights, you can limit your daily driving and enjoy a staggering fuel economy somewhere between 60-93 mpg. On top of that, the Chevy Volt also produces less greenhouse emissions than the Prius.
Only at MPG Car Rental, with its exceptional fleet of hybrid car rentals, can you find the Chevy Volt at such affordable rates. Conveniently located in Venice, CA, MPG Car Rental is the perfect niche company for the environmentally conscious (and cost-saving) consumer.
