The first electric car that runs on more than electricity
Volt is unique among electric vehicles because you have two sources of energy. You have an electric source–
a battery–that allows you to drive gas–free for an EPA–estimated 35 miles. And there's also an onboard gas generator
that produces electricity so you can go up to a total of 375 additional miles on a full tank of gas. So if you want to drive
using only electricity, you can. If you want to drive using electricity and gas, you can do that too. Volt is first for two
very good reasons.
So advanced, it's simple
If you can drive, you can drive a Volt. Instead of turning a key, you push a blue button. Rather than looking at dials and needles, you check two interactive LCD screens for feedback based on your particular driving style. For example, suppose you want to go from A to B in the most efficient manner possible. Volt is programmed to respond with a choice of three driving modes. Normal mode enables Volt to drive like a conventional car, only more efficiently. Sport mode gives drivers more aggressive feedback and heightened response. Mountain mode maintains a power reserve for climbing long, steep grades.
Charging for about $1.50 per day on average
It doesn't get much simpler than that. For less than the cost of a latte, you can fully charge your Volt and drive an EPA–estimated 35 miles gas–free. Choose a standard 120V charging kit that allows you to plug into a conventional electrical outlet and fully charge the battery in about 10 hours, depending on climate. Or opt for an available 240V charging station that reduces your charging time to approximately four hours. Professional installation required. For more information, visit SPX Service Solution.
Two apps, double the connectivity
Curious about your charging status? Download the OnStar RemoteLink™ mobile app and you can see the battery level and charge mode–120V or 240V–right on your smart phone. You'll be able to remotely verify that the car is plugged in and even schedule a future charging time. Text or email alerts tell you when the battery is fully charged or if there's a charge interruption. But suppose you want to schedule a service appointment online? Or create a photo reminder to help you remember where you parked your car? Download the myChevrolet app, which works with OnStar RemoteLink™, to give you all the power you want— in the palm of your hand.
All–over aerodynamic aesthetics
Chevy designers constantly talk about form and function but when it comes to Volt, Director of Design Bob Boniface will tell you that they didn't compromise aesthetics to enable function. The result? A vehicle that looks sporty, quick, smooth and modern, yet achieves an extremely low coefficient of drag.
Countless hours in the wind tunnel influenced the styling of many exterior components including mirrors, a closed grill, rocker panels and the rear spoiler. In fact, the vertical blades that go from the bottom of the spoiler to the bottom of the bumper were designed specifically to trick the air into separating from the bumper more quickly, giving Volt extraordinary aerodynamics.
Another spin on styling...
Make a smart statement with available 17–inch polished alloy wheels. Or choose available 17" painted sport wheels, which come with the option for dealer–installed inserts available in Silver Ice Metallic, Viridian Joule or Cyber Gray Metallic.
