About the Volt

The Chevrolet Volt was one of the first plug-in hybrid vehicles that was mass-produced from 2010 to 2019. It has now largely been replaced by the all-electric Chevrolet Bolt model. There were 2 generations of Chevy Volt in all, the first made from 2010 to 2015, and the second from 2016 to 2019.

The car had different names in other markets. It was known as the Vauxhall Ampera in the UK market, for example, and the Buick Velite 5 in China. In Australia, it was badged as a Holden Volt, and in the rest of Europe as the Opel Ampera.

In its initial concept car, the Volt had an all-electric range of about 40 miles, which was very impressive considering newer models released even in 2020 and beyond can often barely manage 25 miles. The design was quite different, however, with the concept looking more like an electric Camaro.

With the design toned down for the production model, the first-generation Volt could handle 35 miles of electric range and a total range of 380 miles. A range extender was made available which pushed the electric range up to about 40 miles. The second-generation models got up to 53 miles, however, which blew the first out of the water.

On the road, the Volt was also praised for being fast and quiet, qualities not often attributed to hybrid models that were plagued with CVT noise, sluggish acceleration and generally poor performance credentials. The Volt helped to change that image.

The interior wasn’t exactly luxury, but it served its function well, and featured a user-friendly infotainment system on an 8-inch touchscreen, as well as a mobile hotspot, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and comfortable seats. The main interior gripes were a cramped back seat and limited storage space both in the cabin and in the trunk.
