Chevrolet has announced the new 2016 Chevy Volt and it comes with an all electric range of up to 50 miles and will have around 41 MPG.
The new 2016 Chevy Volt features a new 192-cell/18.4kWh lithium-ion battery pack plus a new 111-kW two-motor drive unit and it has a 0 to 62 MPH time of 8.4 seconds.
“The improvements in the efficiency and performance of the 2016 Volt are driven by what owners said they wanted in the next-generation model: more range, better fuel economy and stronger acceleration,” said Andrew Farah, vehicle chief engineer. “Building on General Motors’’ industry leading battery and drive-unit technologies, we’ve delivered all of that, while also making the Volt more refined and fun to drive.”
“Volt remains the only electrically driven vehicle with range capability similar to traditional engine- or hybrid-driven cars of its size,” said Farah. “In all climates, it can be driven across town strictly on electricity or across the country with the assist of its range extender – a claim that can be made of no other electric vehicle without condition.”
