Chevro­let Volt

GA Voice - - Out Spoken -

Volt is to range-ex­tended elec­tric cars what Prius is to hy­brids: The gold stan­dard. Re-styled in­side and out, Volt looks the part of a next-decade trend­set­ter. The pow­er­train was re-en­gi­neered with up­graded bat­ter­ies and mo­tors that ex­tend fos­sil-less driv­ing from 38 miles to 53 miles, af­ter which the gas en­gine fires up to keep the ve­hi­cle go­ing (for a to­tal of 420 miles). Recharge in 4.5 hours. In­te­ri­ors are more log­i­cally ren­dered and fea­ture 4G Wi-Fi, Ap­ple CarPlay, and stan­dard rear-vi­sion cam­era. Avail­able Lane Keep As­sist, Side Blind Zone Alert, For­ward Col­li­sion Alert, and front au­to­matic brak­ing op­tions help avoid ac­ci­dents. It's a high-tech elec­tric car when you want it and a long-dis­tance gas-sip­per when you need it.
