Chevrolet made several changes to the 2016 Volt which may score the extended-range EV some conquest buyers. Things like its extended 50-mile all-electric range, fifth seat, more upscale interior and reportedly cheaper starting price may win the car a few buyers who may have otherwise opted for a Cruze, but Chevy also wants owners of the current Volt to appreciate the improvements they’ve applied.
That’s why Chevy invited them out to a special preview event for the hybrid prior to its reveal in Detroit. No one knows the first-generation Volt’s strengths and weaknesses better than the owners of the car, and to make sure they’ve made the nescessary improvements in moving to the next-generation car, Chevy asked them to share their thoughts on the 2016 model.
See what the current Volt owners thought about the car when they were shown it in the video below, and feel free to share your thoughts on the new plug-in in the comments, whether you own the current car or not. We think it’s a massive improvement over the outgoing model, and with a lower starting price, Chevy should be able to convert a few of their customers to the green-side when the car goes on sale later this year.
