2016 Chevrolet Volt to Make Motown Debut in January


Quote:
Chevrolet confirmed today that it plans to reveal the next version of its Volt range-extended electric car during the 2015 Detroit Auto Show.

The company didnít release any other new details about the car, which is slated to ride on a new dedicated platform. Currently, the Volt is based on a modified version of the same architecture that underpins the Cruze compact sedan. Aside from having its own bones, Chevrolet is expected to improve the all-electric driving range for the new generation. At least in part, that range improvement be possible because of weight savings associated with the new platform. While Chevrolet hasnít released an official number yet, the new Volt is expected to offer a range of between 50 and 60 miles compared to 40 with the current car.

In April, GM announced that it would invest $449 million into its next generation of electrified vehicles by upgrading its Detroit-Hamtramck facility. The manufacturer also said that it would invest another $65 million to support next-generation lithium-ion battery production and systems. Chevrolet is rumored to also be developing a smaller, electric only vehicle that would sit below the Volt.

Since those announcements, General Motors said that it plans to cancel Opelís version of the Volt on sale in Europe after it failed to gain traction. Like the Volt, the Ampera is built at the companyís Detroit-Hamtramck facility alongside the Cadillac ELR, which is also having a hard time finding customers.
