2015 NAIAS LIVE: 2016 Chevrolet Volt image

Chevrolet has officially pulled the wraps off the 2016 Chevrolet Volt at the 2015 NAIAS, in Detroit.

The North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) has recently seen the public debut of the 201 Chevrolet Volt. The model in question has been already previewed at the 2015 CES, last week, and we can notice its stylish look with the sweptback headlights, the angular front fascia, the new front grille, the sweeping shoulderline, the aerodynamic roofline, the black window trim and several other tweaks, including the 17-inch wheels with Michelin Energy Saver all-season tires. The interior design of the vehicle is coming with a curvaceous dashboard, MyLink infotainment system, simpler controls than its predecessor, floating center control, blue ambient lighting and so on.

The vehicle has also received the rearview camera, ten airbags, lane keep assist with lane departure warning, rear cross traffic alert, lane change alert on the side blind zone alert, front automatic braking, advanced park assist and much more. zone Power to the “green” car is being provided by a 1.5 liter four-cylinder range extender, by an electric motor and an 18.4 kWh lithium-ion battery. The new powertrain is apparently 45 kg (100 lbs) easier than its predecessor. The engine is good for 101 HP (75 kW) and the electric motor is producing 149 HP (111 kW) and 398 Nm (294 lb-ft) of torque. The vehicle is apparently capable of traveling up to 80 km/ (50 miles) in electricity alone and for 676 km (429 miles) overall. When the battery is depleted it can be recharged in 13 hours using a 120V outlet or in 4.5 hours from a 240V outlet. No pricing details have been announced yet.
