Just 4 days after we've stumbled upon 2015 Chevrolet Volts available in the inventories of U.S. Chevy dealers, the golden bowtie manufacturer releases all the info we've been waiting for. The entry-level front-wheel drive Volt holds a $34,170 MSRP and comes with a 17.1 kWh Lithium-ion battery pack with rechargeable energy storage system, a 0.6 kWh jump from the 2014 MY.
Even though electric-only miles are the same as on the outgoing model, a number of owners of the 2014 Chevy Volt reported on various forums that they're getting an increased real-world full charge capacity compared to what the manufacturer promised, which translates to an even higher figure for the recently unveiled 2015 model year. The GM brand promises 98 MPGe combined or 38 miles of all-electric travel, together with a 37 MPG combined economy, adding up to a total range of 380 miles.

As it was the case before, a 1.4-liter (85 gasoline engine is also there as a range extender. At the front you get MacPherson struts while the rear is handled by a compound crank setup. As standard, customers of the 2015 Chevrolet Volt get 17-inch five-spoke painted aluminum wheels wrapped in low rolling resistance tires, heated and power-adjustable side mirrors painted the same color as the body, power windows, remote starting system and keyless access, automatic climate control and Chevrolet MyLink.

As if that wasn't enough standard kit, customers are also offered a 7-inch color touchscreen infotainment system and a 7-inch reconfigurable color LCD screen instrumentation, Sirius XM Satellite Radio with Travel Link, an USB slot in the center console, OnStar 4G LTE with Wi-Fi hotspot capability for the tech savvy buyer, and an 8-year/100k miles battery warranty on top of the 5-year/100k miles drivetrain limited warranty.

Some highlight optional extras that might interest you are the sat-nav feature and the Premium Bose Energy Efficient Series audio system, along with a Premium Trim Package. No official announcement has been made about when deliveries of the 2015 Chevrolet Volt will start, but if a handful of vehicles are already available in dealer inventories, we guess that you don't have to wait too long in order to get one.
