Have you heard? The electric car has been redefined with the 2016 Next-Generation Chevrolet Volt! This beautiful electric vehicle was voted the 2016 Green Car of the Year by the Green Car Journal not just for its amazing range 53 pure electric miles,* but its combination of gas-powered range extension up to 420 miles* so you can drive 1,000* miles between fill-ups with regular charging.
With its all-new 1.5L direct-injected, high-efficiency generator, the Volt is the electric car with a backup plan. When the battery is depleted, Volt has the ability to generate additional electric power through a gas-powered generator giving you the confidence to go as far as you want eliminating the “range anxiety” common with other electric vehicles.
Volt is powered by two electric motors that work in unison to optimize efficiency and conserve electric charge while providing responsive power and torque. See below for a visualization:
