UNCA Bolts On The Road!

Last week, UNC Asheville became the first state agency in North Carolina to put new plug-in Chevrolet Bolts on the road in an effort to reduce fossil fuel consumption. John Ridout and Pat Berk of the University Transportation Office posed with one of the cars and then took The Wag for a spin around campus. It is among the quietest, smoothest rides imaginable.

The new cars have an expected range of more than 250 miles on a charge, and by replacing two gasoline vehicles with electric vehicles, the University hopes to reduce gasoline consumption by an additional 1,000 gallons per year, equivalent to about 20,000 pounds of CO2.

Since 2016, UNC Asheville has employed a Nissan Leaf in the motor pool as the all-electric option for travel in the Asheville metro area. And since the arrival of the Nissan Leaf, UNC Asheville has saved approximately 1,200 gallons of fuel. With the addition of the long-range EVs, we should be able to support longer trips without the need for gasoline.

The 2020 Fuel Economy Guide Is Now Available!

Just in time for the beginning of the new year, the 2020 Fuel Economy Guide is now available at FuelEconomy.gov. The Guide is published annually by the U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and offers data on current model year (MY) vehicles.

This year’s guide provides fuel economy ratings for more than 1,000 light-duty vehicles.

FuelEconomy.gov is federal government website that helps consumers make informed fuel economy choices when purchasing a vehicle and helps them achieve the best fuel economy possible from the cars they own.

FuelEconomy.gov is maintained by the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy with data provided by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The site helps fulfill DOE and EPA’s responsibility under the Energy Policy Act of 1992 to provide accurate fuel economy information to consumers.
