2012 chevrolet volt Reviews and News

2012 Chevrolet Volt
2012 Chevrolet Volt
It's understandable if you've never seen a Chevrolet Volt in person because, until just recently, it was available only in a handful of markets. By the end of 2011, however, the revolutionary Volt will be available from sea to shining sea. In fact, after the recent upgrades at the Detroit plant where the Volt is assembled, GM claims that the Volt will be produced in large enough numbers to be sold in Canada, China, and Europe by year's end. Although it drives like any other single-gear electric vehicle, the Volt is unique because it packs a 1.4-liter gasoline four-cylinder engine under the hood. The 150-hp electric motor can power the vehicle on its own for about thirty-five miles, after which the gasoline engine kicks in to spin a generator, propelling the car for an additional 300-plus miles. It goes without saying that the Volt is no sports car, but it steers well, has a decent ride, and is surprisingly buttoned down despite riding on low-rolling-resistance tires. Inside, the Volt is comfortable but lacks the refinement of Chevrolet's newest vehicles, such as the Cruze and the Malibu. The center console in particular is a low point both in design and functionality. The Volt is offered only in a single trim level with just two available options packages: the premium trim package, which adds heated front seats and perforated leather trim on the seats and steering wheel; and the park assist package, which includes a backup camera and front and rear parking sensors.

In its push for vehicle electrification, GM has announced it plans on selling 500,000 vehicles with eAssist or plug-in technology by 2017. “Our commitment to eAssist is unwavering,” said Mary Barra, Senior VP Global Product Development in a release. The mild hybrid technology has proliferated across the automaker’s portfolio and landed in the Buick LaCrosse, Regal, and Chevrolet Malibu. The upcoming 2014 Chevrolet Impala, scheduled to debut next year, will also employ the light electrification technology. GM also says it’s on track for selling more than 50,000 vehicles with electrification this year between the Volt and eAssist-equipped cars. The Volt alone has already sold 19, 309 examples through October, and its plug-in technology will also play a major role in GM’s future. “The unique propulsion technology pioneered in the Volt – the same technology that will be featured in the Cadillac ELR – will be a core piece of our electrification strategy going forward,” said Barra. Already in the books is a plug-in electric version of the Spark EV slated to go on sale next year in the U.S. and South Korea, with other markets to be later announced.
