2016 Chevy Volt Edmonton AB
Chevrolet has undoubtedly the largest lineup of vehicles in the General Motors group. We might not see a brand-new model every year, but we certainly see at least one vehicle enter a new generation by getting revamped. This year, the first to be announced and unveiled was the 2016 Chevy Volt in Edmonton AB. The first hints at a new generation and bits of information surrounding it began to trickle out late last year, and then the model was officially announced and unveiled at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
Some of the biggest bits of information surrounding the all-new model include sportier design cues, a boost to power, even better fuel efficiency and an all-electric range of 80 kilometres. Obviously the most exciting bit of information is the driving range. 80 kilometres might not sound like much of a range, but when you combine that with the fuel engine then youve got an estimated range of almost 645 km, which then translates to drivers - who charge the battery regularly - going approximately 1610 km before ever refilling the fuel tank.
Specs and Features of the 2016 Chevy Volt
There are quite a few other new features and changes coming to the all-new Chevy Volt in the 2016 model year as well. For instance, the new two-motor drive unit has improved efficiency by 12 percent while also cutting off 100 lbs. of unnecessary weight, enabling a 0-48 kmph acceleration time that is 19 percent stronger. We could go on and on describing all of the new features within the all-new 2016 Chevy Volt, but well just list a few of the most important. We cant wait until these vehicles start making their way to dealerships in late 2015.
