2011 Chevrolet Volt with Extended Range Introduced

Scheduled to go on sale at Chevrolet dealers before the end of 2010, the 2011 Volt electric vehicle with extended range has just been introduced by the American automaker. The car is offered in a well-equipped standard trim level, along with two option packages: a Premium Trim Package and a Rear Camera and Park Assist Package.

"The Chevrolet Volt can be the only car you own," said Mark Reuss, president, GM North America. "The Volt delivers it all: a revolutionary propulsion system, progressive styling, industry-leading safety, premium amenities and user-friendly technologies, and spirited driving dynamics."

The Volt is powered by a Voltec propulsion system, which combines pure electric drive (25 - 50 miles) with an efficient, range-extending engine, giving the Volt up to 350 total miles of range.

Key technologies include:
  • Touch-control switch system on the center console
  • High-resolution, seven-inch, full-color LCD reconfigurable Driver Information Center display. The display shows electric-only range, fuel economy, extended-range, trip information, tire pressure information and other key vehicle messages.
  • High-resolution, seven-inch, full-color, center stack-mounted touch screen display that serves as the interface for infotainment and cabin climate controls. An Efficiency (Leaf) switch accesses energy usage, power flow and charging screens – all easy to use and understand.
  • Charge modes are customizable according to need and electricity rates for efficient programming and lower costs.
  • A key fob that allows drivers to remotely start the vehicle and precondition the cabin based on outside temperatures
  • An exclusive mobile app, powered by OnStar MyLink, that enables owners to engage with the Volt functions using a smart phone.

The Chevrolet Volt is priced from $41,000, or $33,500 net of full federal income tax credit. The American manufacturer will lease the Volt for as low as $350 for 36 months and a down payment of only $2,500.
