Real Owners. Real Stories.

We’ve been talking to real Volt owners. See their stories and learn how Volt is helping them take charge.

Efficiency in engineering

With its 1.5L direct injected high-efficiency engine, Volt is the electric vehicle with a backup plan. It runs on an electric charge and generates additional energy through a gas-powered generator when the battery runs out —giving you the confidence to go as far as you want.

  • Up to 53-miles battery range
  • Up to 420 miles total range
  • Chevy expects owners to go 1,000 miles between fill-ups
ELECTRIC MOTOR

Volt is powered by two electric motors that work in unison to optimize efficiency and conserve electric charge while providing responsive power and torque.

BATTERY

With a fully charged lithium-ion battery, Volt is capable of driving up to 53 miles without using gas. The second-generation Volt battery is both lighter and holds more energy than the first-generation one.

GAS POWERED GENERATOR

When the battery runs low on electric charge, Volt seamlessly engages its gas-powered generator to keep you going for a total range of up to 420 miles on a full charge and a full tank of gas.

REGENERATION

Volt looks for ways to smartly use energy while you’re on the road. Through regenerative braking and Regen on Demand™, Volt captures its own momentum to recharge the battery as it slows down.

The science of Volt

Engineers Pam Fletcher and Andrew Farah explain the thinking behind the advanced technologies that give Volt 53 miles of pure electric range.

The power is in your hands

The new Volt gives you more ways than ever to charge and monitor your battery. The innovative Power Flow screen helps you track your driving, while Regen on Demand™ seamlessly transfers the kinetic energy from the vehicle's motion and stores it in the battery while slowing the vehicle down, all with the press of a steering wheel-mounted paddle.

Charging options

Volt recharges with a 120-volt portable cord in approximately 13 hours or with a professionally installed 240-volt charging system in approximately 4.5 hours.

Location-based charging

Based on GPS data, a programmable “home” setting for charging allows you to take advantage of off-peak electricity rates when you’re at home but always begins charging immediately when you’re away.

Brilliance in every detail

Volt combines striking looks with finely tuned aerodynamics, like a stylish recess that moves air seamlessly from front to back for maximized efficiency while showcasing a bolder attitude than any other electric car in its class.

Behind the design

Volt designer John Cafaro and engineer Pam Fletcher discuss how Volt was designed inside and out to be a stunning vehicle that’s intuitive to drive.

Forward Safety Awareness

FORWARD COLLISION ALERT

Available Forward Collision Alert systems use camera technology and/or available radar to alert you to detected slowing vehicles in your path. It also alerts the driver when following a detected vehicle much too closely.

FORWARD AUTOMATIC BRAKING

If the Available Forward Automatic Braking system detects that a front-end collision situation is imminent while following a detected vehicle, the system can automatically apply brakes to help reduce the collision’s severity or even help avoid the collision at very low speeds.

PROTECT

Volt features 10 air bags and smart sensors designed to adjust frontal air bag inflation according to the severity of a crash.

RESPOND

When the air bags deploy, built-in sensors can automatically alert an OnStar Advisor, who is connected to your Volt to see if you need help. Even if you don’t respond, an OnStar Advisor can use GPS technology to pinpoint your exact location and request that emergency help is sent right away.

Safety features are no substitute for the driver’s responsibility to operate the vehicle in a safe manner. The driver should remain attentive to traffic, surroundings and road conditions at all times. Read the Owner’s Manual for more important safety information.
