New 2016 Chevrolet Volt gets 80-kmEV range; debut at 2015 Detroit Auto Show
Chevrolet has unveiled the all-new 2016 Volt electric car with new evolved design and extended range that offers 80 kms of EV range, better efficiency and faster too. The 2016 Chevrolet Volt gets a new lighter 18.4 kWh battery and uses 192 cells (96 fewer than current generation) resulting in a weight reduction of 9.8 kgs. The new Volt’s design is inspired by the toned physiques of athletes and natural shapes of wind-swept sands and includes new features such as active grille shutters. Inside, the Volt gets blue ambient lighting, signature dual digital color displays - an eight-inch-diagonal reconfigurable screen in the instrument cluster to relay driver information and another eight-inch-diagonal touch screen in the center of the instrument panel for the Chevrolet MyLink system.
