Vehicle Electrification Options for Every Consumer

Vehicle Electrification Options for Every Consumer
BAY CITY, Mich. - GM has vehicle electrification options for every customer, allowing you to pick the option that will work best with your lifestyle and driving habits. There are three electric-based options: eAssist, Extended Range electric vehicles and electric vehicles - all of which have characteristics designed to appeal to different drivers.

The eAssist is available on the Chevy Malibu and 2014 Chevy Impala and is ideal for drivers that want a large sedan with compact fuel economy. A small compact car isn't for everyone, especially those that have families or prefer the extra space - that's why this electric vehicle is a great option if you fall into either of those categories. The eAssist gives the driver 25% fuel economy improvement over a traditional vehicle. This vehicle electrification option is also known as the 'light electrification solution' because it is only a small electric motor and a lithium ion battery attached to the engine - this allows the engine to turn off when the vehicle is idle which saves fuel.

Vehicle Electrification Options for Every Consumer The Extended Range electric vehicle (EREV) is powered by both electricity and gas. It does this by using electric for a certain number of miles, then when the battery runs low, it uses an electric generator powered by a gas engine. This option is available on cars such as the Chevy Volt and is perfect for those that prefer to use vehicle electrification on your daily commute, but also want the option to travel longer distances. The EREV gets an average of 900 miles to a tank, saving you about $6,850 over five years.

Pure electric vehicles is the third vehicle electrification option that GM offers. This is available on the Chevy Spark EV and is perfect for drivers that live in urban or suburban communities. It runs purely on electricity and can save the driver on average about $9,000 on gas over five years.

With vehicle electrification for every consumer, no matter their lifestyle or driving habits, every driver has the option to save big on gas.
