World got mad about the electric cars. This entire electric craze that’s shaking the automotive world is very logical if we take into consideration with how many improvements each electric model comes out. The 2015 Chevrolet Volt will come in the next few months with few changes even it is not a redesigned model which we do expect to see as a 2016th model.
Few years ago the synonym for the plug in models was Tesla, and maybe few other cars that were mostly hybrids. Now the new plug in king of the American roads comes from one of the most American-styled car manufacturers. We are talking about Chevy of course and its 2015 Chevrolet Volt, which is by estimates of some online reviewers going to sell significantly better than it is the case with Tesla, this will be achieved with better functionality, design and fuel economy.

Volt has been very popular plug in hybrid since it came out. It is labeled as Holden Volt in some markets, Vauxhall and Opel Ampera in Europe. With all this rebadged models it is the bestselling plug in hybrid vehicle in the world. It took number of awards for its functionality, fuel economy and for being green oriented. Some of the prestigious awards that it took are: Green Car of the Year, North American Car of Year, European Car of the Year and World Green Car of the Year.
2015 Chevrolet Volt Release Date
Chevy Volt exterior design for the 2015 model year looks like every other gasoline or diesel powered vehicle. Since Toyota Prius we are used to futuristic electric cars, looking like small spaceships, but Volt changed all that and it is going to more conservative look, but also being innovative and fallowing all the trends present on the regular gasoline car market. That’s one of the reasons this model became so successful, people are just tired of everybody looking at them while driving their all electric cars, and they simply want to fit in the crowd more easily.
Chevrolet Volt Interior
New model comes with plenty of hi-tech updates inside the cabin. In 2015 drivers of Chevy Volt will be able to hook up on the car’s own wireless network since the new Volt comes with a Wi-Fi hotspot. Another great hi-tech improvement is an OnStar 4G LTE connection system that comes with one month 3 gigabyte of date free trial period.
Changes For 2015 Chevrolet Volt
When it comes to performance this is another level Volt rates very high among other electric cars. It comes with two electric motors that can make 149 horsepower combined. Motors are powered from lithium-ion 17.1 kWh battery meaning it is about 0.6 kWh more than it was for previous year model. Battery is supplied with electricity by the 1.4 liter four cylinder engine, since it becomes electrical generator for the battery and electric motors if needed. Power is transferred through a front wheel drive and with EPA estimate of 98 mpg equivalent when running on electricity only.
2015 Chevrolet Volt
Price of the new Chevy Volt is still unknown to the public, but we don’t think it is going to be much more expensive than the last year’s model, since at the moment Chevy is trying to make Volt as competitive as possible, since its taking part in the constant race for the most affordable electric car with number of Tesla and Toyota models. Reports suggest that the starting price will be $34,345 for 2015 Chevrolet Volt but have in mind that there are some serious refunds and incentives for buyers of vehicles of this type.
