Chevrolet Volt is Simply "Efficiency in Engineering"
What exactly is an extended range EV?. Simply put, the Volt is the electric vehicle with a backup plan. Thanks to its battery pack and 1.5L direct injected high-efficiency engine, the Volt is the electric vehicle that will never cause range anxiety. It runs on an electric charge for up to 85 kms, but also generates additional energy through a gas-powered generator when the battery runs low, allowing you to continue to drive to your destination.
The Chevrolet Volt is powered by two electric motors that work in unison to optimize efficiency and conserve electric charge while providing responsive power and torque. When the battery runs low on electric charge, Volt seamlessly engages its gas-powered generator to help keep you going for 100’s of additional kilometers. Volt also looks for ways to smartly use energy while you’re on the road. Through regenerative braking and Regen on Demand™, Volt captures its own momentum to recharge the battery as it slows down. The innovative Power Flow screen helps you track you’re driving, so you’ll always know the status of your battery.
The technology continues inside the cabin with Chevy’s MyLink system on a touchscreen, wireless smartphone charging, Bluetooth, 4G LTE and Wi-Fi hotspot as well as impressive safety features including Blind Spot Alert, Rear Cross Traffic Alerts, Lane Assist and adaptive Cruise control. OnStar remotelink mobile app allows you to remotely start your vehicle lock and unlock doors, and activate your vehicle’s horn and lights to help you locate it. Should you be in an accident and the airbags deploy, built-in sensors can automatically alert an OnStar Advisor, who is immediately connected to your Volt to see if you need help. If you don’t respond, an OnStar Advisor can use GPS technology to pinpoint your exact location and request that emergency help is sent right away. Volt automatically shuts off the fuel pump, unlocks the doors and turns on interior and hazard lights to maximize visibility and safety.
The Volt fully supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. This innovative technology lets you interact with your maps, your texts, your music and more using voice commands or the MyLink touch-screen display in your car. It’s easy to use and helps you keep your eyes where they belong — on the road. Access to the available built-in Wi-Fi hotspot and OnStar® 4G LTE is seamless and provides the ability to connect multiple devices at the same time.
The Chevrolet Volt is the 2016 Green Car of the Year, it combines striking looks with finely-tuned aerodynamics, that moves air seamlessly from front to back for maximized efficiency while showcasing a bolder attitude than other electric cars in its class.
