2016 Chevrolet Volt
Chevrolet Volt will be a first car in second generation of this vehicle. According to some rumors, it has been prepared for launch in 2015 as 2016 model year. We can expect big, but not evolutionary change of style. New platform is expected, but some things will be carried over. The thing that will surprise all buyers is modification of the prices, but in a good way, because Chevy will decrease it for 2016 Volt.
2016 Chevrolet Volt redesign
Chevrolet Volt is a extended electric car from GM. We haven’t heard so much of it recently, mainly because of the sale numbers from 2013. Company’s alarms were triggered, and they are preparing all new vehicle in 2016 Chevrolet Volt. This generation will suffer many changes. First of all, we will have new platform on it. So far, Volt has been compact five-door hatchback. For 2016 year model, it will be four-seater. There won’t be rear central seating spot , because of the T-shaped battery pack which will go through center tunnel of the car. However, some rumors are telling that other version of the Volt will be launched with 5 seats. Exterior should retain its familiar shape. It will have high vertical tail, which is excellent for aerodynamic of the 2016 Volt.
2016 Chevrolet Volt engine
Powertrain changes were not mentioned for the new 2016 Chevrolet Volt. So, we can suppose that engine will be carried over from current model. Generator will be powered by 1.4-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine, which is same as for Cadillac ELR model. Generator will further recharge the lithium-ion batteries. Whatever company decides to put in new Volt, they need to satisfy a lot of buyer’s requests for longer electric range. Current, 40 mile range faced a lot of complaining from users, but we doubt that GM can meet their demands. Of course, improvement is expected, but not up to 200 miles, as some rumors tell. It is more likely that new 2016 Chevrolet Volt will be capable of getting it to 50-ish miles.
2016 Chevrolet Volt price
Since 2013 in markets was for oblivion for Volt, GM decided to launch new redesigned car. In order to improve sales, price decrease is planned. According to some gossips, 2016 Chevy Volt is about to be cheaper for $10.000 from its predecessor. However, it is certain that current price of $35.000 will drop. Experts suppose that it could be around $30.000 for new Volt.
