Running Silent, Running Deep: The 2012 Chevrolet Volt

Chevy Volt at Les Stanford Chevrolet in Dearborn, Michigan First, let’s get out of the way that the Chevy Volt is NOT an all-electric car. It is a plug-in hybrid, which means it has more power and longer range on batteries than your average hybrid (25 to 50 miles at up to 100 MPH.) It can be plugged in and it has a gasoline engine to restore power to the system. That said, the 2012 Chevrolet is quite possibly the most fuel-efficient production vehicle on the market today, as well as certainly being the most advanced hybrid to roll out of Detroit so far.

The Volt is a 4 door hatchback that seats four. Primary power for the vehicle is delivered by an electric motor that generates 149 horsepower and puts out 273 foot pounds of torque, drawing on a 16 kilowatt lithium-ion battery pack. Recharging the batteries is a 1.4 liter four-cylinder inline gasoline engine, which is rated for premium fuel only. Advanced engineering also allows this engine to add some power to the wheels at high speeds. The car also recovers power during the braking process and can be completely recharged from either a 120 volt or 240 volt outlet. Time from standstill to sixty is approximately 9.3 seconds, average for a hybrid of this class.

Standard features on the Chevrolet Volt include automatic headlights, automatic climate control, heated mirrors, keyless entry and ignition, remote ignition, cruise control, auto-dimming rear-view mirror, manual front seats with six degrees of movement, tilting and telescoping steering wheel, cloth upholstery, OnStar, including turn-by-turn Nav Assist, Bluetooth, voice control for phone, a six-speaker sound system with CD player and touchscreen and 17 inch alloy wheels.

Moving up to the premium package will gain premium leather seating, a leather swathed steering wheel, and heated front seats. Available as an option is the Rear Camera and Park Assist package.

Fuel mileage is truly variable for the Chevrolet Volt, due to its combo plug-in and hybrid nature. If you make a round trip of perhaps 30 miles every day, return home and plug it in, you will rarely burn a drop of gasoline. If you make longer trips, your mileage will average out to about 33 miles per gallon.

Sitting in the driver’s seat will be a new experience because of newly formatted bucket seats as well as modifications to the details of the interior, where Chevy has finally chosen to compete against other manufacturers of sports cars. Stare into the instrument panel and you won’t recognize much except for the tachometer and speedometer of white with the red needle.
