The 2016 Chevrolet Volt’s engine will remain an important component in the extended-range electric vehicle. MLive reports that while discussing General Motors’ Flint Engine Operations, GM executive vice president Mark Reuss declared that “Flint remains an important part of [the Volt’s] powertrain.”
Besides being more efficient than the current car, there isn’t much we know about the new Volt’s powertrain, though rumor is the new car will use a 1.0-liter three-cylinder engine in place of the current car’s 1.4-liter four-cylinder unit.
Reuss, who spoke at a meeting today for salaried Buick retirees, also noted that the Volt has “found a great audience” and that the new car will have “more to like” in it. Fortunately, we’ll find out more about the 2016 Volt this January at the 2015 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
