About Chevrolet Volt
The Chevrolet Volt is an extended-range electric vehicle (EREV). The first-generation model was introduced for the 2011 model year. It rode on a variant of the GM Delta II platform shared with the first-generation Chevrolet Cruze and Buick Verano (sold in Europe as the Opel/Vauxhall Astra J) and was powered by the first-generation Voltec propulsion system, consisting of a 5.5-foot, 435-pound (198.1 kg) T-shaped, 16-kWh lithium-ion battery pack that sends energy to an advanced 111-kW (149-hp) electric drive unit to propel the vehicle.
This delivered a pure electric driving range of between 25 and 50 miles, depending on terrain, driving techniques and temperature. When the battery energy is depleted, the Volt seamlessly transitions to extended-range mode. Power is inverted from a 1.4L 63 kW (84 horsepower) gasoline-powered onboard engine to the electric drive unit to provide up to 344 additional miles of range, for a total range of 379 miles. The first-generation model ended production for the 2015 model year, at which point it was replaced by the current, second-generation model starting with the 2016 model year.
Riding on the GM D2 platform, the second-generation Volt is powered by the second-generation Voltec electric drive system that consists of an 18.4-kWh lithium-ion battery pack and an Ecotec 1.5L gas-powered range extender that delivers 53 miles of EV range and 420 miles total driving range.
The 2018 Chevy Volt represents the third model year of the second-generation Volt. It gets three new colors, the replacement of leather for vinyl on the steering wheel and shift knob cover on the LT model (leather-wrapped versions are optional), and the introduction of a new optional Driver Confidence Package on the LT trim level that consists of Rear Park Assist, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert and Side Blind Zone Alert.
For the 2019 model year, the Volt receives several notable changes, including two new exterior colors, improvements to the interior in the form of new infotainment systems, better power seat adjusters, new patterns for cloth seat fabrics, and - perhaps most notably - a new 7.2 kW high-voltage charger.
Both generation of the Chevrolet Volt have been built exclusively at the GM Detroit-Hamtramck factory operated by GM USA. Starting in 2017, the second-generation model is sold in China as the Buick Velite 5.
Industry rumblings have suggested that the Volt will exit production in 2022 and be replaced by a crossover utility vehicle with the Voltec powertrain. Then, in November 2018, GM announced plans to discontinue the Volt and shutter the Detroit-Hamtramck plant where it is built.
