At the auto show in Detroit 2015 premiered the new hybrid sedan Chevrolet Volt 2 generation, the development and launch of which GM has spent about 435 million dollars. Outside view of the new Chevrolet Volt 2 declassified one week before the debut, showing a hybrid at CES Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Compared with its predecessor, the outside Chevrolet Volt II turned out much sleeker.
Heated public interest in novelty, the manufacturer pre-focused on the appearance of the new Volta, who promised to make stylish and modern. And I must admit – they do it to the fullest. Contours of the body in 2017 Chevrolet Volt has become much smoother and more harmoniously and complement the image fashionable lighting and chrome inserts on balanced grille and front bumper. Much more attractive interior and turned the new 2017 Chevrolet Volt, which is now in the decoration used markedly improved materials and design of the front panel, instrument panel, center console and door cards do not shout so clearly about hybrid cars and futuristic, as it was in the Volta 1 generation .
Specifications. The movement of the Chevrolet Volt 2 brings hybrid propulsion system consisting of a 1.5-liter gasoline engine, giving out 101 hp (Predecessor to use 84-horsepower engine 1.4), two electric motors and a set of lithium-ion battery capacity of 18.4 kilowatt-hours versus 17.1 previously. As before, the internal combustion engine is only used to recharge the batteries, stored energy that can be replenished, and by connecting the machine to a power outlet. A full charge from the mains voltage of 120 V takes about 13 hours, and the 240-freestyle – about 4.5 hours.
In the new electric Chevrolet Volt (2017) able to overcome 80 km – is twenty kilometers more than in the past. And with a fully filled tank (its capacity is 33.7 L) and charged battery power reserve is 676 km. Increased mileage without refueling in no small measure contributed to the reduction of vehicle weight. Thus, both electric steel 45 kg lighter than the previous, and the battery, by reducing the number of cells in it from 288 to 192, began to weigh less than 9 kg.
Furthermore, 2016 Chevrolet V received other control program powerplant, whereby virtually all driving modes using both motor and not any one of them. It is allowed to make a hybrid dynamic – to accelerate from 0 to 50 km/h it needs 2.7 seconds, and up to a hundred Volt II accelerates in 8.6 seconds. Another useful feature is the ability to choose the best time and place to recharge your batteries. The owner can set the parameters so that, for example, the completion of energy occurs during the term of lower electricity tariffs, or when the load on the grid is minimal.
Configuration and price. The price of the new Chevrolet Volt 2 and the start date of its sales in the US will be announced later.
