Efficiency and Performance
The Volt is a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle. That means that it can be charged up via plug and run exclusively on electricity for up to 53 miles in the latest version. Older versions have a slightly lower range, at around 40 miles, but overall, that all-electric range is extremely useful. Many drivers rarely use gas power at all.
If you do expend the range of the lithium ion battery, the Volt will switch on its 1.5L gas engine, to help recharge the battery. The Volt uses two electric motors for power, and one will sometimes work as a generator or work to collect energy during regenerative braking.
Overall the Volt has been very well equipped. It includes features like keyless entry and ignition, automatic climate control, the OnStar telematics system, an 8-inch touchscreen display with the Chevy MyLink infotainment system, the Apple CarPlay iPhone integration system, and much more.
Those shopping for a used Chevy Volt should note that the car debuted first in 2011. The Volt has received relatively minor changes since then, save the improvement in range in the most recent models. Some changes that might be worth noting include:
- 2011: The first model year of the Volt included navigation and a premium Bose audio system standard. After that, those features were made optional.
- 2013: Chevrolet introduced available lane departure and forward collision warning systems for 2013, as well as optional low emissions equipment. A “Hold” mode was also introduced.
