The Volt does not have a “continuously variable automatic transmission”.. it does not vary… it’s just reduction gears.. no shifting.. not continuous
shifting like a CVT tranny… it’s a thousand times better.
The description of the Voltec drive is pretty poor… “standard petrol unit and electric batteries” says nothing. … the electric drive can either be powered from the battery or the combination of battery and generator.
The electric range is 55 miles average… some people will get over 100 miles on a charge and in the dead of winter you will get less… it’s a average not a set range.
I am getting over 240 mpg after one year, but never have I gotten over 55 miles on a charge. This car has no down side so I’m hoping for just a few minor refinements. There would be no need for additional power unless they go to all wheel drive since I can spin the wheels any time I want.
Please Please Please, for the love of god bring back the 4 seat arrangement. The separated rear seats were distinctive, futuristic and practical. The 3 seat bench is typical, boring, and useless.
I can’t imagine why this was even considered. To make it a family car that kids will hate? Increase space for a new battery that is suppose to be a smaller? It doesn’t make sense.
I think the entire chevy design and marketing team should be sentenced to sit on the “hump” for a week for making such a ridiculous change; let alone keeping it for 3 years. X(
I know the the utilities rates vary. can you give us a estimate from each state what’s the price will be to charge the batteries from drained to full.
