It’s also loaded with a ton of standard features that will keep you entertained while driving. Things like full phone integration, Bluetooth, and voice activation will make your driving experience a very pleasant one.
There are only two trim levels to choose from, which keeps things nice and simple. The LT trim comes with all of the awesome technology features listed above, as well as cloth seating.

The 2017 Chevrolet Volt is a plug-in hybrid electric car. It pairs up an electric powertrain with a gas-powered generator, which means you can go a lot farther with much less gasoline. It will use the electricity to power the vehicle until it runs out, then switches over to a super efficient 1.5L 4-cylinder engine to not only keep the car moving, but power the battery as well. There are many different options for battery management in this car, so you have a lot of control over how it uses its electric power.
The Volt uses an 18.4 kWh lithium-ion battery to take you up to 53 miles on pure electricity. This is more than the 2017 Toyota Prius Prime’s range of only 25 miles. You’ll get up to 106 mpg-e when running on all-electric power, and when it runs out, there’s no need to worry because you’ll still get up to 43 mpg with the gas engine, and up to 420 miles of total cruising range. With the combination of electricity and gasoline, you can go up to 1,000 miles before ever having to stop for gas.
You might think of hybrids as being boring to drive, but with the 2017 Chevrolet Volt that’s just not true. With 149 horsepower and 294 lb-ft of torque, you can really zip around in this thing. It’s also much quieter than many hybrid vehicles as well, so you can enjoy a peaceful and efficient ride all together. The battery can charge in as little as 4.5 hours as well. Combined that with the gas engine, and you’ll never have to worry about running out of power.
There are four different driving modes for the Volt: Normal, Sport, Mountain, and Hold. Normal is the default setting that will keep your car working in generally the most efficient way. Sport increases throttle response for a more active driving style. Mountain enables the engine and battery to combine power to get you up steep mountains in the most efficient way. Finally, Hold mode holds all of the available electric battery power for later use. As you can see, this car is very versatile. You can really customize your power options to get the most out of your super efficient vehicle.
