2013 Chevrolet Volt Overview
The Chevrolet Volt is a four-passenger, five-door compact hatchback plug-in hybrid electric vehicle. For (up to) the first 40 miles, the vehicle drives gas- and tailpipe-emissions-free using electricity stored in its lithium-ion battery. When the Volt's battery runs low, a gas-powered, engine/generator seamlessly operates to extend the driving range another 300 miles on a full tank.
The Volt is powered by an 115kW electric motor and 16kWh lithium-ion battery pack, enabling it to travel approximately 40 miles on a charge. The 1.4-liter gasoline range extender generates electricity and provides an additional 300 miles of driving. The battery can be charged with a standard household 120-volt outlet in about ten hours, or in about four hours with a 240-volt outlet (similar to a clothes dryer outlet). Standard features include automatic climate control, alloy wheels, passive entry, satellite radio and Bluetooth connectivity. OnStar's Mobile Application allows drivers to communicate with their Volt from their smartphones - it uses a real-time data connection to perform tasks such as setting the charge time, displaying charge status, unlocking the doors and remotely starting the vehicle to pre-condition the interior temperature. Safety features include eight airbags, traction control and stability control. The optional Premium Trim Package includes leather seat trim, leather wrapped steering wheel and heated front seats. Front and rear park assist and a rear camera are also available. An audio system with navigation, 30-gigabyte hard drive, Chevrolet MyLink Touch with Bluetooth streaming audio, NavTraffic real-time traffic display and Bose speaker system is optional.
For 2013, new Safety Packages include forward collision alert, lane departure warning, front and rear park assist and a rear camera. The roof and liftgate are now body-color. A new EV Hold drive mode allows the driver to switch between extended range (for the highway) and electric-only (running purely on battery, for in the city).
