Chevy Volt Safety Ratings Point of Pride For Jim Ellis Chevrolet

Chevy VoltChevy Volt Tops Competitor Nissan Leaf in U.S. Insurance Industry Crash Tests

General Motors Chevrolet Volt passed the U.S. insurance industry’s toughest frontal crash test, while Nissan
Motor Company’s battery-electric Leaf could not make the grade. The electric cars were part of a larger group
of small cars run into a barrier meant to simulate a tree, or other car, crushing about one-fourth of the car’s front
end. The test is tougher than U.S. government’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration head-on
crashes.

For an “acceptable” or “good” rating, cars have to be engineered to preserve space around the head and torso,
have seat belts that keep a driver from pitching too far forward, and plenty of air bags to mitigate crash forces.
Chevy Volt made the grade and received an “acceptable” rating during this crash test. The Nissan Leaf received
a “poor” rating on the same crash test. See the results at http://www.iihs.org.

Jim Ellis Chevrolet is proud to be a supplier for the Chevy Volt and to be #1 in Georgia in Volt sales and #2 in
the Southeast Region. They are also the only dealer in Georgia with a six bay solar EV charging station for the
convenience of customers.

Volt is one of the leaders in the Green Car industry and we are happy to be able to provide our customers this
fantastic brand and charging convenience,” said Mark Frost, General Manager of Jim Ellis Chevrolet.
