Chevy Volt Earns IIHS Top Safety Pick+

CNN Money reports that the Chevrolet Volt was named a Top Safety Pick+ by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety thanks to its optional forward collision warning system.

The IIHS tested twelve different small cars, and the Chevy Volt was the only one that possessed a forward collision warning safety system, proving that the safest car on the road is “the one that can avoid getting into a crash all together.”

Four of the cars in the test were rated “poor,” including the Fiat 500L, the Nissan Juke, the Mazda 5 and the Nissan Leaf. The Leaf short-circuited during its test, and the Mazda 5 was the worst performer.

More than 65,000 Volts have been purchased since December of 2010, when the car was released. It is the highest-selling plug-in electric car in the United States. Of the 65,000 plus customers, more than 70% of Volt owners are new to the Chevy brand, and over 90% of them have said that they would buy another Volt.

It’s hard to see why not: the Volt offers incredible fuel economy, hip and stylish looks, and now, top-rated safety features.  If you would like to join other satisfied Volt customers, check one out today here at Hanner Chevy – 65,000 Volt fans can’t all be wrong!
