Chevy Volt Gets Minor Improvements for 2012
The car is now slightly more efficient too, with a 5 MPGe improvement, from 93 MPGe to 98 MPGe and it can travel for longer on a single charge, now up to 56 km (35 miles). Other changes include a new “EV Hold Mode” which forces the use of the 1.4-liter engine, in order to preserve the juice already stored in the battery pack - a feature which is also available on the Opel/Vauxhall Ampera. Another addition will be a lane departure warning system, now commonplace among the tech-savy European manufacturers.
Good news for those who didn’t really like black trunk and roof - Chevrolet are ditching both, and the car is all the better for it, if you ask us.
