Volt to Vacation
June 26, 2012 9:11 am ET
As you know the cars and trucks of GM have a lot of personality and with that, many thoughts to share. This guest post is written by the Chevy Volt, who is looking to meet that special someone.
The Sonic came back to the garage and can’t stop talking about its date with Sarah Coulsey and I started to get jealous…I am in high demand you know… hip, young and green! I’ve decided I want to follow the Sonic’s lead and let you decide who I go out with! But I’ve got a lot of road to cover and I want my little black book to be filled with choices.
That said, I am going to be opening up my social calendar to you! The Sonic went on a date so I am taking it to the next level! I move fast… so let me know where you’re going on vacation! Hint: I love eco-friendly, or green activities that I can make greener!

Hi, I’m the Chevy Volt…
I’m the most electrifying date option out there. I mean, I don’t like to brag, but let’s face it.. I am a little bit special. There aren’t many other cars like me out there on the dating market.
Summer is here and I’m feeling charged up and ready to go green and hit some great sunny weather destinations around the Northeast. Problem is, I don’t have a traveling partner!
A little over 2, so I am still a youngster!
Someone with a big picture mind! Someone who’s willing to let me in on all of their green secrets!
Sleek 4 door sedan
I am the combination of innovation and creativity. I am smooth and soft spoken with a kind, eco-friendly heart! Don’t think I’m slow; I’ve got a lot going on under my hood.
I’ve got a quiet elegance with my electric engine, but get me going and you’ll really hear the extended range take over and I purr. With OnStar, I am really well connected everywhere I go. When I’m on the road, safety is important to me, and I have all the latest features.
I know you are intrigued now, but you’ll have to meet me to see the rest…
I’ve got electric when you want it, gas when you need it…
My Ideal Date:
I am all about cleaning up; let me help make your “green-cation” even greener. We can spend a week soaking up rays on the beach or drive through upstate New York camping out under the stars!
I want to meet someone who wants to charge me up and get going!
Sports & Exercise:
Hitting the open road with my powerful electric engine all charged up!
I am born in the USA and really love to travel! Inside me roars the heart of a brainiac so I would love someone who’s got a good head on their shoulders. I’m a really go with the flow kind of person who is up for anything. I can tell you a few things I don’t like! Littering, oil wasting, and general “un”-greenness!
