Sleeker, sportier design
2016 Volt has a completely new, muscular design that has inspired features DNA-performance Chevrolet vehicle refined in wind tunnel. New features, including blinds Grill assets, design balance helps effectively. Fluid, dynamic form of the Volt is inspired on the toned physique athletes and even natural forms of sand whipped by the wind, with body-side carved and defenses that merge with the capo. The front aspect retains identity iconic Volt, with top and bottom Grill bright pads.
Greater attention to detail in the design cues, materials and colors is also paid a higher premium, contemporary aura to its appearance. Also firm retains distinctive Volt in the front doors higher, leading to more than one of the identifiers of the first generation model. Interior, the new Volt includes seating for five. Fresh colors exude an aura of luxury inviting – complemented by blue ambient lighting – while the controls are more intuitive and easy to manage.
The Volt retains its dual color displays digital signature with a reconfigurable display of eight-inch-diagonal in the instrument panel to transmit information to the driver. An eight inch touchscreen of additional diagonal in the center of the instrument panel controls Chevrolet MyLink.
Less icons on the central Dashboard makes it easier to operate. Independent climate control knobs and buttons under the Center display offer convenient operation clear.
New Voltec propulsion system
A new, second Voltec generation of extended-range electric vehicle (EREV) propulsion system is the power behind greater range of fully electric driving 2016 of the Volt, greater efficiency and stronger acceleration. It was designed on the basis of the first Volt owners driving behaviors generation. Owners Volt completed more than 80 percent of their trips without using a drop of gasoline and tell us that they love the electric driving experience.” Put that experience in the Centre of the development of the new Voltec system helped us to improve the range, while also making the funniest new Volt drivers, said Andrew Farah, Chief Engineer of vehicles.”We have established a precedent when the original Voltec propulsion system, debuted and this new iteration sets the bar even higher EV technology.”
The Voltec system includes electronics battery, motor, transmission and extended range power unit.
Battery technology leader in the industry of GM has been redesigned for the next generation Volt. 2016 Volt will use a system of batteries of 18.4 kWh with revised chemical cell developed in conjunction with LG Chem. While the total storage capacity of the system has increased, the number of cells has declined as the result of a chemistry revised 288-192. The cells are placed low in the package for a (lower) improved Center of gravity and the total mass of the package is 21 lbs (9.8 kg) lighter.
Just like the battery, two engines for the next Volt drive system generation offers greater efficiency and performance, along with reducing noise and vibration. Drive unit operates up to 12 percent more efficient and weighs 100 lbs (45 kg) less than in the current system. Both engines work together in more scenarios driving, both in EV and extended-range performance. The ability to use both engines helps to provide an improvement of 19 percent acceleration power from zero to 30 mph (2.6 seconds) and an improvement of 7 percent from zero to 60 mph (8.4 seconds). GM engineers designed the electric motors Voltec used raw materials significantly less rare earths. An engine does not use a type of rare-earth magnets.
Most convenient location-based charging
The use of the experiences of the real world of the current owners Volt, Chevrolet made in the upcoming Volt charging system more convenient generation for customers can recharge the battery – and to check the State of charge.
Load the GPS location-based
“Owners will now be able to set their preferences of charge exclusively for the” home “load and vehicle is automatically set to this setting when in” House “based on GPS data”, said Farah, the head of machines. “The new Volt will be giving owners greater flexibility for loading in their terms and make public charged easy.” This will allow owners check the validity to establish their level of 120V (eight amps or 12 AMPS) and if they want to load immediately, set a start time for each day of the week, or set a time and a program of utility rates to charge only rates not peak. These settings will only be programmed once and the Volt will be by default when the vehicle’s return to their place of origin.
New, more intuitive charge status indicators
The next generation Chevy Volt makes it easier for owners to confirm your Volt is charging and measuring the charge State. The new system of account statement with a specially designed tone that indicates when it has started charging, with delay load additional ringtones. Even otherwise if the loading port door left open after disconnecting, but before entering the vehicle. With a look through the windshield, a light current charge status indicator in the at the top of the instrument panel displays the approximate charge level through a series of flashes. A charging port available illuminated makes it easier to connect at dusk.
Improvements of the portable cable set
