2016 Chevrolet Volt partially revealed image

A sneak peek into the second generation of the Chevrolet Volt has been offered by the North American based automaker, during the 2015 CES, in Las Vegas.

We already know from several spy shots that Chevrolet is working on a replacement of the Volt but it seems that the development of the car is more advanced than initially believed considering the fact that the company is offering a preview of the model, at the 2015 CES, in Las Vegas. Judging by the images posted above, the model in question has been completely redesigned but it is still instantly recognizable.

The “green” vehicle has a redesigned front fascia, with new upper and lower grills, with a more modern look for the LED daytime running lights and several other tweaks. The model is also getting what seems to be a slightly sloped roofline but this hasn’t affected the rear headroom. The 2016 Chevrolet Volt will be getting a better steering system and improved acceleration, as the company is promising.

Also, the vibration and noise levels in the cabin have been reduced and the battery pack, which has been created in collaboration with LG Chem, is 13 kg (20 lbs) lighter and it can now store 20 percent more energy. The vehicle is getting a newly developed two-motor drive which is 45 kg (100 lbs) lighter than its predecessor, along with a new 1.5 liter four-cylinder gasoline burner. The world premiere of the model will be made at the 2015 NAIAS, in Detroit, on the 13th of January.
