2016 model year changes
The Chevrolet Volt has been completely redesigned for 2016, now entering its second generation. The body is more sculpted and muscular, while the interior is more comfortable and feels roomier. The drivetrain has also seen a major overhaul with a new dual motor system that helps save weight and increase efficiency. Even the battery placement has changed, with the battery pack being placed lower and further back in the vehicle to improve weight distribution and stability.
Electric car economy with traditional car range; bigger than expected interior; excellent smartphone integration
Special features for 2016
The Chevrolet Volt starts at around $33,000 and competes in the mid-sized sedan segment, however it's somewhat unique status as a plug-in hybrid sets itself apart from much of the market. With over 50 miles of electric range, it's likely that most owners will get around purely on electric power most of the time they're driving the Volt. However, range anxiety should be non-existent as the Volt does have a gasoline engine available to recharge the batteries when needed. Chevrolet estimates a total range of about 420 miles if the Volt is not recharged via an external source.
The Chevrolet Volt seats four people and offers the convenience of a five-door hatchback. Well-equipped in the base model, standard equipment gets you the following: 17” alloy wheels, automated headlamps, LED daytime running lights, heated and powered side mirrors, remote entry and start, automated climate control, cloth upholstery, tilt and telescope steering wheel, rolling Wi-Fi, OnStar, 7” touchscreen console with Bluetooth/USB/iPod connectivity and the MyLink system, and a six-speaker audio system with satellite radio. Upper trim levels can get you things like leather upholstery, heated front seats, back-up camera with front and rear parking sensors, collision mitigation system, GPS and premium seven-speaker Bose audio system. The Volt is powered by an electric motor that’s rated at 149 horsepower (111 kilowatts) and 273 pound-feet of torque, paired with a 1.4-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine that makes 83 hp.
