Basics of EVs, PHEVs and Hybrid Vehicles + Green Chevy Models

hybrid-evs-miami-lakes-chevy

Last week we discussed the 2017 Chevy hybrids, PHEVs and EVs, but all of that can seem like a lot of “talk” if you don’t really know the differences between each of those systems or the benefits to owning a “greener” vehicle. In addition to just saving you money in annual fuel costs, vehicles powered by alternative fuels also have fewer emissions and a new way of measuring fuel economy.

First, it is important to understand the difference between hybrids, PHEVs and electric vehicles.

A hybrid is a vehicle that can run on battery, gas, or a combination of both. They are usually equipped with a gas engine, electric motor, and battery.

Chevy’s available hybrid is the Chevy Malibu Hybrid. You can search out Chevy Malibu inventory here.

A plug-in electric hybrid, or PHEV, is equipped with a gas engine, electric motor, and battery. Like a hybrid, a PHEV can also run on only electric, only gas or a combination of both, but the battery in PHEVs is larger so it can power the vehicle on electricity much longer than hybrids, but the larger battery needs to be plugged-in to be recharged.

Chevy’s available PHEV is the 2016/2017 Chevy Volt. You can search our Chevy Volt inventory here.

An electric vehicle, or EV, runs purely on an electricity that is supplied by a battery. It needs to be plugged-in to be recharged. Read the rest of this entry >>

2017 Chevy Hybrid and EV Models

Miami Lakes Chevy 2017 PHEV EV Hybrid

Chevy has joined the evolving world of electric and hybrid vehicles, and they’re making a lot of noise with their awesome line up of hybrids, PHEVs, and EVs. Already out for the 2017 model year is the 2017 Chevy Volt, 2017 Chevy Malibu Hybrid, and soon-to-be-released, the all-electric Chevy Bolt EV. Check ‘em out.

2017 Chevy Bolt EV

For those not in the know, “EV” stands for electric vehicle, and the all-new 2017 Chevy Bolt is an all-electric zero emissions vehicle with quite the range. Chevy shocked everyone when they released specs on how far the Bolt can go. On a fully charged battery, the Bolt has a range of 238 miles, which is 25 more miles than the Tesla Model 3 is expected to get (when it is released). Additionally, the Bolt can charge about 25 miles for every hour of charging when using a 240-volt charger (the fast option).

Dolphins and Uber Pair Up & Offer New Tailgating Experience

miami-dolphins-uber-miami-lakes-auto-mall

Forget the checklist, planning and packing, there’s a new way to tailgate to Dolphins’ games in at the newly named Hard Rock Stadium. Uber and the Miami Dolphins paired up to create ‘UberTailgate,’ a program that gives Uber users a roundtrip ride to the game and a full tailgate experience.

Many people drive to the stadium because that is the only way to bring all of the tailgate necessities, but ‘UberTailgate’ changes this. With the purchase of tickets to all eight home games, your group of Uber users dropped off at a private tailgating spot that is equipped with a tent, chairs, grill, charcoal and a cooler. Uber guests can bring their own food and drinks or they can purchase food and snacks from the nearby concession that offers all of the usual tailgate food.

This is the first time Uber has partnered up with an NFL team to offer the experience and there are a lot of benefits. Aside from a designated Uber driver transporting drinking tailgaters, it allows people that don’t have tailgate gear to have a great experience without having to go buy it all (grill, ice, chairs, tent, and pay $40 for parking) just to tailgate at one game.

The experience isn’t free, tickets range from $250-$350 depending on the game, but it’s not bad when you split it between friends, it covers a roundtrip safe ride, and when you think about all of the necessities needed to tailgate (grill, chairs, tent, and then the cost of parking $40). There are 20 available spots at each game and they can be purchased at hardrockstadium.com/uber. Read the rest of this entry >>
