We are very excited to announce this special event. We have teamed up with GM to offer the Chevy Eco Chic Tour with

We’ve got 8 spots to fill on the Chevy Eco Chic Tour with on Saturday, July 16, 2011. Details on how to enter to win a spot on this fab FREE eco tour of Miami are below.

We’ll meet at a dealership and then hop into the cars: two electric Chevy Volts and Tahoe Hybrid. Each participant will have an opportunity to drive each vehicle throughout the day.

Our first stop is Ecoist in Wynwood. We’ll get a private tour of Ecoist, makers of eco-friendly accessories. If you haven’t seen their candy wrapper handbags in person, you are in for a treat. Next, we’ll drive over the bridge to Uhma Spa. This organic spa is an utter sanctuary in the heart of South Beach. Mini-treatments, anyone? Then, we’ll have a late lunch at Metro Organic Bistro, which looks delish. Finally, we’ll head up the street to pick up your car and say our goodbyes!

  1. I have been a supporter through academic publications and volunteer work, of an American solution to the GHG emissions problems for as long as I can remember(definitely since the first GM Electric Car). This is just where we should be going and I’d like to be up to date and able to share this experience with students and volunteer partners. Good work.

    Because this event is at Tropical Chevy, in my neighborhood, I think this reflects good citizenship. Lets encourage a leadership role. I’d like to compare these domestics, like the Chevy Cruze Eco, with optimism that they’ll get people back from Broward. As an alternative to imports, lets do the right thing to make Miami proper proud – getting people on board is the patriotic thing to do. JS

  2. This sounds fabulous! It would be great to participate because I’ve never been in an electric or hybrid vehicle, and I’m interested in seeing how they work and how they handle. Also, as a Florida nature travel book author and mother to a son with multiple food allergies, doing things the more-natural way has become a way of life for my family. I tweet at .

  3. I would love to participate! I’ve been wanting to do one of these for some time now, but for one reason or another had been unable. I’d love to test drive an electric vehicle, and I’m free and clear on 7/16! Thanks for the opportunity!

  4. How fantastic ! Miami needs to know that there are alternatives to gasoline powered vehicles and that electric cars are the future. I have been an enthusiast and promoter of alternative energy since I was a child. Hurray !

  5. Congrats to Cesar, Amanda, Holly, and James! We’ve sent you an email to confirm your attendance! There are still a few spots available, so please continue to comment if you are interested in attending!

  6. Thank you, so excited about this!

  7. Sounds good! I’m a mom with two little kids & I’m currently shopping for a new vehicle so I’m very interested in GREENer options. Hope you’ll consider us! (That Tahoe would be perfect!)


  8. in the market for a car that does as good on gas (or better) than my ailing little Honda Civic, riding around in the Chevy Volt that PLUGS into and outlet instead of gas-guzzling sounds like a dream!!!

  9. Being a Chevy owner(Silverado)I am curious to see what it would be like to get behind the wheel of the Hybrid Tahoe. Driving a Hybrid and reducing our need for gas is the future.

  10. My husband and I would love to attend. I love Chevy and we are on the market for a vehicle. I love social media and tweeting also. @raisingchild on Twitter.

  11. The first time I learned about Chevy’s electric (eco-friendly) cars was when they gave a talk at FIU. I run a blog, therefore I reviewed the experience and what it was like to test drive one of their cars, specifically, the VOLT.
    It would be great if I could attend this event to continue writing about Chevy and its new and innovative cars.

  12. My friend and I are looking for something exciting to do on Saturday but we come as a pair ;)
    I just bought a chevy and I love it, it would be interesting to find the eco-friendly cars to see how they drive. I also run a vegan/vegetarian blog that does reviews on eco friendly and vegan products.

  13. I am a die hard Chevy fan and looking to make a purchase of one soon. A hybrid is even better because it saves money on gas and is better for the environment. I have worked with GM before, so would have no problem in sharing the experience with my network.

  14. All of the spaces have been taken! Congrats to our first 8 commenters: James, Holly, Amanda, Cesar, Dayngr, Jennifer, George and Samantha Sophia. See you soon!
