2016 Chevrolet Volt Spied Again9
Not long ago we saw some blurry spy photos of what looked to be the next-generation Chevrolet Volt, but the images weren’t clear enough for us to be exactly sure what the prototype was. Now, Autoblog has caught the same model out and about, and it’s apparent from the pictures that what we’re looking at is the 2016 Volt.
There are a few tell-tale signs that this is a Volt. First, the prototype shares its overall shape with the current car, although it appears to be a little more sleek and streamlined. The charging port is clearly visible, there is a plug hanging down from the front fascia, and there appears to be safety shut-down switches on the sides of the body and rear end.
General Motors has remained tight-lipped about the next-generation Volt. We do know it will continue to be built at GM’s Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant and will arrive as a 2016 model, but that’s about it. It’s safe to assume it will use a similar version of the Voltec powertrain, albeit with farther electric range, possibly as high as 50 to 60 miles.
Have a look at Autoblog’s spy photos here and let us know what you think about the 2016 Chevrolet Volt in the comments.

I’m liking the look of it. The shape looks much more swift and sculpted, less Prius like. I just hope those headlights don’t make it look like a Honda. From the profile and the way the tail lights wrap around, it almost looks like a 4 door coupe ELR.
Is it me or is it that in certain proportion of this car looks like Elantra?
I like this way better than the last one.
I can’t wait! What do I buy next? A 2015 Canyon or a 2016 Volt?
LOL, why are you cross-shopping a Volt and a new Colorado? Something is telling me you’re not planning on actually buying one, but you’re just not sure which is more fascinating to you. 😉
does that matter of what hes going to choose lol????
You buy the Canyon as I may.
I just hope that this car excess many peoples expectations. I am hoping for more range but not sure how much we will get. The cheaper model is nice but only if it can meet the present cars range.
I suspect GM is going for a much larger battery some how to extend the range much more. than the present car and that way they can offer the cheaper smaller range car at a lower price. Range cost money.
Now there is a all electric model coming as some have said. I wonder what this one will be. A Chevy or Cadillac?
Thanks for the spy shots. Now we can go back to a previous story and answer the question: What is it, next gen. Volt or Cruze hatch ? It is the new Volt, just look at the same rear end as spy shots before had.
Paul, I’ve thought for a while now that there will be no Volt & Ampera replacement because it would save costs by just having hybrid versions of whatever models demand saw fit, & thus giving a variety of body styles & sizes. Just as you wouldn’t make a diesel a different car than a petrol just for the sake of it, why should & hybrid be different. I recon the new Cruze will be petrol, diesel & hybrid
