2016 Chevrolet Volt Specs

The new Volt is more conventional looking, but certainly not completely ordinary. GM says the car’s “eco attitude” is inspired by athletes and windswept sands, but we mostly see an emphasis on improving the first-gen Volt’s wind tunnel aerodynamics while tacking towards the mainstream. The LED daytime running lamps on the outside front corners widen the car’s apparent stance when it approaches, and in person, the car looks lighter, too.

The 2016 Chevrolet Volt gets a new look outside, but changes underneath are even more significant. Reduced weight, new electric and gasoline power units, and a redesigned interior make this an impressive follow-up to the original.

Chevrolet Volt will be a first car in second generation of this vehicle. According to some rumors, it has been prepared for launch in 2015 as 2016 model year. We can expect big, but not evolutionary change of style. New platform is expected, but some things will be carried over. The thing that will surprise all buyers is modification of the prices, but in a good way, because Chevy will decrease it for 2016 Volt.

2016 Chevrolet Volt Release Date

The 2016 Chevrolet Volt presentation was definitely the hottest debut when it comes to green cars on 2015 North American International Auto Show. This nice piece of Chevrolet electric car competes with Prius, and for this year Chevy announced that new model is going to come with the same all electric range as Toyota’s vehicle and that it will also come with additional fifth seat. We can expect to see new Chevrolet Volt 2016 in dealerships in first half of 2015.

Now that that’s out of the way, let’s talk story. General Motors will unveil the new Volt at the Detroit Auto Show later today, but it’s been talking about how this new version the first major plug-in hybrid vehicle to get a serious redo in the modern era was crafted with reams and reams of data from first-gen Volt customers. At a preview event for journalists last week, GM executive chief engineer Pam Fletcher told Autoblog that these owners “gave us the recipe” to make the second-gen model.

Chevrolet Volt is a extended electric car from GM. We haven’t heard so much of it recently, mainly because of the sale numbers from 2013. Company’s alarms were triggered, and they are preparing all new vehicle in 2016 Chevrolet Volt. This generation will suffer many changes. First of all, we will have new platform on it. So far, Volt has been compact five-door hatchback. For 2016 year model, it will be four-seater. There won’t be rear central seating spot , because of the T-shaped battery pack which will go through center tunnel of the car. However, some rumors are telling that other version of the Volt will be launched with 5 seats. Exterior should retain its familiar shape. It will have high vertical tail, which is excellent for aerodynamic of the 2016 Volt.

The next-generation Volt starts with a new chassis replacing the modified Chevrolet Cruze platform under the current model. This reduces weight and improves packaging, but the familiar T-shaped battery pack remains, as does the resulting center channel hump into the rear seat area. In a new twist, however, the rear seat area is belted for three occupants (the current model only seats two).

After this announcement everybody expected some big changes on the Chevrolet Volt 2016 exterior and a longer wheelbase, but they were surprised after the new generation vehicle came with the look which was almost the same as the one from last year. Of course there are some exterior changes, from sleeker look, to some cosmetic changes in the front fascia and of course the charger light, but the wheelbase and overall length and width stayed the same. There are 6 different 2016 Chevrolet Volt colors options: Kinetic Blue Metallic, Iridescent Pearl Tricoat, Summit White, Siren Red Tintcoat, Silver Ice Metallic and Mosaic Black Metallic.

It’s a stretch to call this five-passenger seating, though. The center space is barely wider than an armrest and a middle passenger’s legs need to straddle the intrusive center channel. Overall rear headroom is also pretty limited, owing to the Volt’s sleek, coupelike design.

So where did they found a place to put this miracle fifth seat in Chevrolet Volt 2016. Previous models came with only two seats in the back row. In between them there was a piece of hard plastic that prevented third person to sit there, and was attached on the plastic frame in front of it which covered this vehicle’s lithium-ion battery. Now instead of plastic there is a third seat, although battery is still placed in front of it. Technically it is possible to fit another adult passenger on the third seat, but practically all three passengers from the back row will feel cramped, especially the one sitting in the middle because of the battery bump.

2016 Chevrolet Volt Engine

Two electric motors will work in conjunction with a new 1.5-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine to power the Volt. The electric motors generate 149 horsepower and a whopping 294 pound-feet of torque, while the four-cylinder contributes 101 hp when asked.

Another great update for this model is the longer all electric range that new Volt is able to accomplish. Chevy announced a great increase and the ability to reach 50 mpg and therefor compete with Toyota Prius that comes with the same all electric range. They did increase this model’s range, but only for 4 additional miles, so in opposing to 37 miles range that the last model came with,new model comes with 41, which is still far behind the Toyota Prius. Another thing is the increase of this vehicles fuel efficiency which is now 50 mpg in combined conditions, which is the same as its fierce rival. We are still not sure is this information also little bit too much or the new Chevrolet Volt 2016 is really able to achieve fuel economy this high. New model comes with revised 1,5 liter four cylinder engine that provides it a longer range together with its two electric motors that are able to act as generators as well. Battery has little bit bigger capacity this year and instead of 17,1 kWh it has 18,4 kWh capacity and it is made out of lithium-ion cells.

The four-cylinder engine acts primarily as a generator that sends electricity to the battery pack, but also as a “range-extender” engine that can power the Volt once the initial battery charge is depleted. The engine can drive the Volt either alone or blended with the electric motor, depending on conditions. The new four-cylinder also runs on regular unleaded fuel, not the premium grade required by the current engine.

Powertrain changes were not mentioned for the new 2016 Chevrolet Volt. So, we can suppose that engine will be carried over from current model. Generator will be powered by 1.4-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine, which is same as for Cadillac ELR model. Generator will further recharge the lithium-ion batteries. Whatever company decides to put in new Volt, they need to satisfy a lot of buyer’s requests for longer electric range. Current, 40 mile range faced a lot of complaining from users, but we doubt that GM can meet their demands. Of course, improvement is expected, but not up to 200 miles, as some rumors tell. It is more likely that new 2016 Chevrolet Volt will be capable of getting it to 50-ish miles.
