    Easy Ways to Improve Fuel Economy and Reduce Your Carbon Footprint

    Last updated 7 months ago

    Though buying a Chevy Volt or Spark at our San Diego Chevrolet dealership is an excellent way to reduce your carbon footprint, both vehicles involve a significant initial investment. If you aren’t in a position to buy an electric car, you’ll be glad to know that there are many ways to improve your fuel economy starting today.

    Instead of driving your own car to work each day, you might connect with coworkers in your area and organize a carpool. It’s also a good idea to keep up with your vehicle’s regular maintenance, including oil changes and proper tire inflation. You’ll find that you use less total gas if you brake and accelerate more gradually while driving through the city. Lastly, you can reduce fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions by turning your car off instead of idling.

    For more tips on improving your fuel economy, call City Chevrolet of San Diego at (619) 817-8445. If you wish to reduce your carbon footprint even further, we’d be glad to pair you with a new Chevy Volt or Spark.

    To cut down on greenhouse gas emissions, more American drivers are making the switch to electric vehicles. However, relatively few people understand how electric cars work.

    This animated video offers a look at the anatomy of the 2014 Chevy Spark EV. You can get a clear picture of how the rotor, paired magnets, stator, electrified conductor, and other components work together to maximize the Spark’s efficiency. Even when you apply the brake, the Spark captures kinetic energy and uses it to recharge the battery.

    The 2014 Chevrolet Spark EV is a San Diego Driver's Dream Car

    Last updated 8 months ago

    If you do most of your driving around San Diego, you may not need a four-wheel-drive behemoth. Urban dwellers of San Diego value practicality, style, and efficiency over power and towing capacity. If you’re looking for a new vehicle that will get you around town, you should consider the 2014 Chevrolet Spark EV. Here are a few reasons why more San Diego residents are embracing this innovative electric vehicle:

    Stylish Design

    The 2014 Chevrolet Spark EV has a sleek, futuristic look to it. Its aerodynamics contributes to its astonishing efficiency, and the automatic shutter system adjusts the airflow as needed. The Chevrolet Spark EV is about 12 feet long and 5 feet wide, allowing it to fit into some tight parking spaces. The Spark EV comes in five exciting colors, each of which will turn heads all over town: Electric Blue, Black Granite, Silver Ice, Summit White, and Titanium.

    Comfortable Interior

    Though style and compact design are important for city drivers, they don’t tell the whole story. Most urban dwellers need a comfortable interior that has enough room for a few passengers and maybe some groceries. The Spark EV may look small from the outside, but it can comfortably seat four adults and offers up to 23.4 cubic feet of cargo space. 

    Unbeatable Efficiency

    The Chevy Spark’s pièce de résistance is its outstanding efficiency. While other vehicles are woefully inefficient in stop-and-go traffic, that’s when the Spark EV performs at its best. The Spark EV’s lithium ion battery-powered engine uses no gas, which means there are no emissions. The Spark EV also boasts regenerative braking, which helps extend the vehicle’s total range to 82 miles on a full charge.    

    If you live in downtown San Diego or another nearby urban center, you’ll find that the Chevy Spark EV can make your life a lot easier. If the Spark EV isn’t your style, you should try one of the other new and used Chevy vehicles at City Chevrolet. Call us at (619) 817-8445 to learn more about vehicles and services.
