2015 Chevrolet Volt Review - Chevrolet Cars Review
Welcome to Raiacars.com, The next review about 2015 Chevrolet Volt Review from Chevrolet cars. Let's see more specification, concept and review details for this cars below.
2015 Chevrolet Volt Review , The 2015 Chevrolet Volt ranks 15 out of 22 Upscale Midsize Cars. This ranking is based on our analysis of published reviews and test drives of the Chevrolet Volt, as well as reliability and safety data.The 2015 Chevrolet Volt, now in its fifth model year, remains the first-ever high-volume electric car from General Motors. It’s a five-door compact hatchback with four seats that combines around 40 miles of battery power with a small range extending gasoline engine that produces electricity to give the Volt unlimited range for longer trips.One distinctive trait about the 2015 Chevrolet Volt is that it offers a longer electric-only range than most plug-in hybrids (think 40-ish miles). Ostensibly, what makes this plug-in Chevrolet appealing to shoppers is its ability to tackle the short daily commute on electric power while also offering the range necessary to facilitate weekend road trips. You plug it in at home for a charge, but if your travels take you farther than expected, a gasoline-powered engine that serves as a generator kicks in to extend the Volt’s range. At this point it’s similar to a standard hybrid, using gasoline along the way. However, when you exceed the electric-only range and run on gasoline, the Volt gets an EPA rating of a mere 37 mpg combined, while the Toyota Prius and some of its ilk get upward of 50 mpg combined. Some owners may be thrilled to go weeks or months without ever visiting the pump, while others may be looking for a vehicle with better overall fuel economy.This first-generation Volt remains a low-volume car, with roughly 23,000 sold in each of the last two years or just slightly more than the number of Cruze compact sedans Chevy sells in a single month. Popular in states and regions with electric-car incentives, including California, the Volt remains a rarity in other regions. Both those facts contribute to continuing confusion over how the Volt works and the myth that still crops up that it can only go 40 miles at a time. Whether it’s been bad marketing, bad reporting, or the brand-new powertrain concept, many buyers simply don’t “get” the Volt or why its owners would be so astoundingly passionate about it and many dealers make no effort to help them along.
