For the second consecutive year, Chevrolet Volt has electrified audiences with a win in the category of 10 Best Engines, awarded by WardsAuto, a company that provides auto industry news, information, data and analysis to automakers, dealerships, suppliers and the industry's like. The overall flexibility of the drive-time experience and improvement upon previous generations are where Volt excelled, earning mentions for its torque-propelled handling fun, an impressive up-to-53-mile electric-only range, and fuel efficiency for when you need to step on the gas.
And we at Chase Chevrolet can see from whence the accolades came. Volt's second generation showcases a two-motor drive unit dishing out up to 294 lb-ft of torque, along with an 18.4kWh lithium-ion battery pack and Ecotec 1.5L gas range extender to make the most of longer trips. One can certainly see these enviable abilities borne out in Volt's EPA-estimated 106 miles-per-gallon gas equivalent and up to 420 miles of total driving range. And Chevrolet claims data shows that drivers use all-electric power more than 80 percent of the time, which really takes the meaning of such values home.
