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.

Charging right at home

Charge right at home with AeroVironment’s Level 2, 32amp EVSE-RS with a 25ft cord (professional installation required). This associated Chevrolet accessory allows you to reliably charge your Volt up to 2.5 times faster than with traditional cord sets and is easy to use, elegantly designed and rated for indoor or outdoor installation.

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.
