Take A Better Look At The All-New 2016 Chevrolet Volt In 25 New Photos

Chevrolet has released a new set of photos with the all-new 2016 Volt plug-in hybrid, which delivers 53 miles (85 km) of EV range.

The second-generation Chevrolet Volt is more efficient and quicker than its predecessor thanks to a new two-motor drive unit that is up to 12 percent more efficient and 100 lbs (45 kg) lighter than the first-generation unit.

The 2016 Volt offers a General Motors’-estimated total driving range of 420 miles (676 km). However, thanks to regular battery charging, owners are expected to travel more than 1,000 miles (1,609 km) on average between gas fill-ups.

Chevrolet says the new Volt delivers 19-percent stronger zero-to-30 mph (0-48 km/h) acceleration in 2.6 seconds and a 7 percent improvement from zero to 60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 8.4 seconds.

The 2016 Volt uses a 101hp 1.5-liter petrol engine as a range extender with the combined output rated at 149hp and 294lb-ft (398Nm) of torque. Fuel efficiency of the petrol engine alone is rated at an EPA-estimated 42mpg US and a combined 106MPGe.

Battery capacity has increased to 18.4 kWh using 192 cells (96 fewer than current generation), with the battery weight reduced by more than 21 pounds (9.8 kg). Charging times are about 13 hours at a 120V outlet and 4.5 hours at a 240V outlet.

The 2016 Chevrolet Volt will arrive in US showrooms later this year.
