Encompassing smooth styling, futuristic features, and excellent fuel economy, it’s easy to see how the 2012 Chevrolet Volt and 2013 Chevrolet Malibu landed on Kelley Blue Book’s list of the 10 Best Green Cars of 2012.
The 2013 Malibu settled into the ninth spot on the list. The innovative eAssist system on the Malibu allows a lithium-ion battery to enhance the gasoline engine for better fuel-efficiency in a variety of driving conditions. Favorite features of this car include Chevrolet’s MyLink infotainment system and blue ambient interior lighting. EPA fuel economy estimations for the 2013 Malibu Eco are 25 city MPG and 37 highway MPG.
Cinching the fourth position on the list, the 2012 Volt offers the complete package of looks and functionality. The Volt runs strictly on a battery until it is depleted. When this occurs, the gasoline engine takes over to recharge the battery and run the generator. This combination allows the Volt to receive an EPA estimated 35 MPG city and 40 MPG highway. The Volt’s sleek exterior is more pleasing to the eye than some of its competitors, yet it remains one of one of the most aerodynamics cars in GM’s history. Who says you have to give up style to go green?
Malibu and Volt are arguably two of the best environmentally-friendly vehicles in the market today, and both are currently available at Jim Sigel Automotive. Visit us in person at our Grants Pass dealership or online at http://jimsigel.com/ to learn more.
The Nissan LEAF is no stranger to awards and accolades, but recently it broke another record as it became the fastest car to drive over a measured mile…in reverse!
The LEAF was driven backwards up the famous hill climb course at the Goodwood Festival of Speed with professional stunt driver Terry Grant at the wheel. This is not the first record Grant has set in a Nissan. At the festival last year, he set a world record by driving a Nissan Juke up the same hill on two wheels.
“I had a great car at my disposal – with direct drive from the electric motor to its wheels, the Nissan LEAF can, in theory, go as fast backwards as it can forwards,” said Grant. “There were times I wasn’t sure I was coming or going. However, thanks to the LEAF’s low center of gravity – the batteries are an integral part of the car’s floor – the car is extremely stable, no matter which direction it’s traveling. The only complaint I have is slight neck ache from constantly looking over my shoulder!”
Come see us at Jim Sigel Auto to get your own record-setting Nissan LEAF. For more information on the LEAF and other great Nissan vehicles, visit us online at http://jimsigel.com/.

From its survey of over 38,000 people, market research firm Harris Interactive revealed that Honda took the top spot in the Full Line Automotive Brand of the Year category.
The 2012 Harris Poll EquiTrend study puts together questions that measure how consumers feel about particular car brands. Questions include information on how positively or negatively consumers would rate a brand, how much they’d be willing to buy a product of the brand, and how familiar they are with the brand in the first place. Honda beat out last year’s winner, Ford, to take the number one top spot.
Honda has been manufacturing quality vehicles for several decades and as evident by this survey, it’s easy to see how the company has become America’s favorite automotive brand.
