The 2016 Chevy Volt

Screen Shot 2015-03-02 at 10.27.15 AM

In mid January, 2015, Chevrolet unveiled the 2016 Volt, Chevrolet’s electric car, soon to be available at Classic Chevy. The new Volt has an extended range and a sportier design than the 2015 model year had. It features 50 miles of electric car range, is more efficient than the previous model and has stronger acceleration. With this new model, consumers can expect to visit the charging station every 400 miles with regular charging; and you’ll be able to travel over 1,000 miles before you have to visit the gas station.

Chevrolet replaced the old electric motor set up with a two-motor drive unit, which is up to 12 percent more efficient. The new drive unit is also 100 pounds lighter than the old drive unit. Because of the double motor setup, the Volt’s acceleration from zero to 30 mph increased by 19 percent.

Battery capacity has also increased – it is now 18.4 kWh and used 96 fewer cells than the current generation. The new battery capacity is just 192 cells, and that reduced the Volt’s weight by over 20 pounds.

Additional features include Regen on Demand™, a new 1.5-liter range extender engine that runs on regular unleaded fuel and gets 41 mpg,* quieter ride, stronger body, a new braking system, it now seats up to five passengers, has location-based charging capability and has a 120-volt portable cord that is easier to use and more compact than the old charging cord.

And, the power plant is not the only thing that has changed. The 2016 Volt has a new design with performance designs to make it more aerodynamic, active grille shutters, a more contemporary appearance, new colors, blue ambient lighting inside, dual digital color displays – both 8 inches, and an easier-to-navigate center dash system.
