2015 Chevrolet Volt Exterior

2015 Chevrolet Volt Overview (See Available Styles)

Unlike conventional hybrids, which drive the wheels with electric or gas power, the Volt is a battery-powered electric car that has a gas-powered range-extending generator onboard to keep the car going if the charge runs out. The Volt is essentially a four-door hatchback family car with two rear seats separated by a console that houses part of the car's long, T-shaped battery pack.

New for 2015
The OnStar communication system adds 4G LTE internet connectivity with a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot. A three-month/3-gigabyte data trial is included. The capacity of the Volt's lithium-ion battery pack is up slightly to 17.1 kilowatt-hours, but the EPA's all-electric range estimate remains 38 miles.
