On the surface the new Volt is the same as the old Volt, as Roger Daltrey would say. It uses the same basic dish of a small four-cylinder engine powering a small electric motor to power the front wheels.However, the recipe has changed.What the new Volt has is two electric motors, instead of one, to run either individually or simultaneously depending on the driver’s needs. The gas engine has also changed from a 1.4 liter four-cylinder to a 1.5 liter Atkinson-Cycle, Eco-tech four-cylinder. The engine’s peak horsepower is 101 horsepower and the two electric motors combine to make 149 horsepower. That’s 250 horsepower combined for both the electric motors and the gas engine. That’s 70 more than you get in an i3. However, the 0-60 time for the Volt is rated at 8.4 seconds which is over a second slower than the i3’s 7.2 claimed time. Considering the i3 weighs about 700 lbs less than the Volt, at 3,550, that’s not too surprising.
