Electricity and gas seamlessly come together to deliver the best of both worlds. It’s electric when you want it, gas when you need it.
With Volt drivers averaging 900 miles between fill-ups,† Volt is continuing to deliver the freedom from the pump.
The advanced lithium-ion battery first allows you to drive gas-free for an EPA-estimated 38 miles.† Then the onboard gas-powered generator provides electricity so you can drive a total of up to 380 miles on a full charge and full tank of gas.†
With recognition like “Highest Ranked Vehicle Appeal Among Compact Cars, Three Years in a Row”† by J.D. Power, a number one spot on the Sierra Club’s list of plug-in hybrids and “Leader in Strategic Vision’s 2013 Total Quality AwardTM for Best Mid-Size Car,”† there’s no mistaking that Volt is an everyday electric car, with gas for longer trips.
No matter how far you need to go, you’re always covered. The Chevrolet 2-Year Scheduled Maintenance coverage* includes 4-wheel tire rotation, a 27-point vehicle inspection, oil and oil filter changes and comes standard with the purchase or lease of a 2014 Volt.
From electric miles driven to gallons of fuel saved, Volt owners are hitting impressive milestones that help make them the happiest drivers on the planet. Meet some of the owners behind the data, and get an idea for just how monumental these numbers are with the interactive graphic below.
For less than the cost of a latte, you can fully charge your Volt and drive an EPA-estimated 38 miles gas-free.† Choose a standard 120V charging unit† that allows you to fully charge the battery in about 10 to 16 hours.† Or opt for an available 240V charging station that cuts down your charging time to approximately four hours. Professional installation required. For more information, visit Bosch Automotive Service Solutions.
If you can drive, you can drive a Volt. Instead of turning a key, you push a blue button. Rather than looking at dials and needles, you check two interactive LCD screens for feedback based on four driving modes you can seemlessly switch between to best suit your driving style.
Normal mode enables Volt to drive like a conventional car, only more efficiently. Sport mode gives drivers more aggressive feedback and heightened response. Mountain mode maintains a power reserve for climbing long, steep grades. And Hold mode allows you to hold your battery charge in reserve during stop-and-go traffic.
Even the simple act of braking has been taken to the next level with regenerative braking, which captures some of the energy usually lost during braking and converts it to electricity that’s stored in the battery.
Volt comes with all of the technology you expect from a game changer. Amenities like the Chevrolet MyLink™† Radio with 7-inch diagonal color display touch-screen that lets you easily navigate through an amazing array of information and entertainment options. Bring Pandora® Internet Radio,† Stitcher SmartRadio™† and Gracenote®† along for the ride. Complete an array of hands-free tasks with Siri Eyes Free† when connected through iPhone 4S or iPhone 5. Chevrolet MyLink† also allows streaming audio content from select smartphones to converge on the color touch-screen display.
Get visual and voice-guided directions via Turn-by-Turn Navigation, standard for three years with the OnStar† Directions & Connections® Plan. You can even create a navigation course from MapQuest® through eNav™. Simply send that information to your Volt and access those directions on your Chevrolet MyLink™† Radio with 7-inch diagonal color touch-screen when you get in the cockpit.
It’s more than an app – it’s a community of Volt owners engaged in friendly competition. You can track the efficiency of your Volt and set goals to maximize it. Then one-up other Volt drivers to earn achievements, scorecards and a spot on the leaderboards. Better yet, it’s all in the name of gallons saved. Read more.
Take charge of your battery. The OnStar RemoteLink™ mobile app† shows the battery level and charge mode of your Volt –120V or 240V – right on your smartphone. You’ll be able to remotely verify that your Volt is plugged in, schedule a future charging time and receive charge alerts. Beyond the battery, this app also lets you lock or unlock your doors, or remotely start your Volt from anywhere you get cell service. Read more.
To further connect your Volt through OnStar®, go to MyVolt.com.
Download the myChevrolet† app to add convenience to your day – like the ability to easily find your Volt using the parking reminders map or get roadside assistance when you need it. You also get fast access to your Owner’s Manual, and you can schedule a service appointment from the comfort of your couch or wherever the day takes you. Read more.
Fully charged, a 16.5 kWh lithium-ion battery powers Volt for an EPA-estimated 38 electric miles†. If you also have a full tank of gas, the total driving range is up to 380 miles.† And if the battery runs low, you don’t have to worry because Volt automatically transitions to a unique gasoline powered range-extending capability. It’s the everyday electric car, with gas for longer trips.
And when it comes to the battery, you always have a backup plan. Chevrolet keeps you covered with a 8-year/100,000-mile Battery and Voltec Component Limited Warranty.†
Simply keep the green ball in the center of the gauge to enjoy optimal battery efficiency.
Bose® energy efficient series speaker system
Get incredible sound from an available seven-speaker Bose® audio system with subwoofer that’s 30% smaller, 40% lighter and uses 50% less energy than comparable Bose® systems.
When it comes to Volt, form and function unite to create a vehicle that’s sporty, quick, smooth and modern, yet achieves an extremely low drag coefficient.
Countless hours in the wind tunnel influenced the styling of many exterior components including mirrors, a closed grille, rocker panels and the rear spoiler. In fact, the vertical blades that go from the bottom of the spoiler to the bottom of the bumper were specifically sculpted to trick the air into separating from the bumper more quickly, giving Volt extraordinary aerodynamics.
Another spin on styling
Make a smart statement with available 17-inch polished-aluminum wheels. Or opt for available 17-inch sport alloy wheels with black inserts, which come with the option for dealer-installed inserts available in Silver Ice Metallic or Cyber Gray Metallic.
Reduce friction by driving on specialized Goodyear low rolling resistance tires and get up to one additional all-electric mile when compared to ordinary tires.
Inside the cockpit you’ll discover new technology that empowers your driving experience like never before. Two interactive color LCD screens allow you to monitor information and get efficiency feedback based on your driving style. You can even set up your Volt to make the most of charging times. If rates are lower at certain times of the day or night, your Volt can be scheduled to charge only when the price is right. Electricity costs vary, so check with your provider for your rates and to determine the best time to charge your Volt.
Just like the exterior, Volt has an interior with a flow of its own. A unique design incorporates a full center console with sporty bucket seats for four. Cup holders, storage bins, door panel storage, cargo space†—10.6 cubic feet to be exact—all the things you’d expect are there. What you don’t expect is a dedicated umbrella pocket and another storage area for the standard 120V charging cord.
Select your style
Volt offers a number of striking interior color combinations. Premium cloth is standard. But you can also opt for available leather-appointed, heated seats in Jet Black with Dark Argent or Ceramic White accents, or select Pebble Beige with sueded inserts and Dark Argent accents. See the complete list of features and specs.
When it comes to safety, there’s no mistaking that Volt has raised the bar. The 2013 Volt received a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score for safety from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration† and was named a 2013 Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. When it comes to the latest safety standards, these accolades speak volumes.
Cameras, sensors and helpful alerts
Your drive begins with the aid of an available rear vision camera system that shows what’s behind you when traveling in reverse at low speeds. Rear park assist will audibly alert you of hazards found on the rear vision camera system. Drivers can also activate another audible alert that helps caution pedestrians who may not hear Volt approaching at low speeds.
Avoid or lessen the damage caused by incoming collisions with Forward Collision Alert† which uses a forward-facing camera to alert you of slowing vehicles. There’s also available Lane Departure Warning† that monitors lane markings and warns you in case you are drifting out of their lane.
Lastly, there is the confidence of the StabiliTrak® Electronic Stability Control System with Traction Control that is designed to help keep you on your intended course.
In addition to eight standard air bags† should a collision occur, Volt also automatically relays crucial information to the OnStar® Command Center via OnStar® Automatic Crash Response.† There, trained OnStar Advisors utilize GPS technology to pinpoint your exact location and can request that assistance be sent right away—even if you’re unable to respond. OnStar is standard for three years.

Volt uses stored electricity initially to propel the vehicle and has a gas-powered range extender that activates when battery power is depleted. When needed, the gas-powered range extender allows the vehicle to travel hundreds of additional miles.
Regenerative braking recaptures the energy of the car’s forward motion and converts it into electricity. By recycling some of the energy generated from braking, the battery is supplied with recaptured energy without producing additional emissions.
Low rolling resistance tires reduce the energy needed to keep Volt moving, which improves fuel economy.
The assembly facility features one of the largest photovoltaic solar arrays in Southeast Michigan at 516 kilowatts. This renewable energy conserves resources and reduces dependence on fossil fuels.
The engine, transmission and battery facilities are landfill-free. These facilities use a process to reuse, recycle or convert to energy all waste created in their daily operations, which conserves resources.
After the vehicle’s useful life, 85% of it is recyclable. The majority of its components can be broken down and recycled, which conserves resources and reduces landfill deposits.
