2016 Chevrolet Volt

Here at Mike Anderson Chevrolet of Merrillville, we’re looking forward to bringing Gary area drivers the new and improved 2016 Chevy Volt. The new Volt will boost range and efficiency with a new, higher density, lightweight battery pack, an additional electric motor, and more high tech features than ever before. Read on to learn more about the new second generation Chevrolet Volt!

2016 Chevy Volt

Efficiency and Performance

For 2016, Chevy is adding an additional electric motor to the Chevy Volt. Before, a single motor and a 1.5L four-cylinder gas engine powered it. The gas engine stays, and Chevy claims that the new two-motor powertrain is actually lighter and more efficient than the previous version.

According to EPA estimates, the new Volt should be rated at 41 mpg combined. That number is up from the previous Volt’s figure, but remember that it only applies when you’re using gas to power the engine along with the batteries and electric motors. When you’re using only electric power, the Volt can drive up to 40 miles without burning any gas thanks to its 18.4 kWh battery pack. When you figure in all the power the Volt can store you can travel about 400 miles. Chevy estimates that many drivers will find that they only need to fill up the gas tank every 1,000 miles or so when recharging the batteries regularly.

We don’t know much else about the forthcoming second generation Chevy Volt, but we do know that it will have a slightly revised illuminated charging power.

What Else is New?

One other big change that Chevy is purportedly making is in the rear seating area—there should be some provisions for a fifth seat in the back of the Volt. Until now, there have only been four seats because the center mounted battery pack created a raised center column that ran through the center of the car.

Beyond a new rear seat, we expect that the Volt will be available with the latest Chevy MyLink system and the new OnStar 4G LTE wireless connectivity and in-car WiFi hotspot.
