The future is here at Thompson Chevrolet. The 2018 Chevy Volt isn’t an electric car, and it also is not a pure gasoline-powered gar, it’s both. The ingenious design allows for an excellent range of electricity and a backup gas engine if you run out. The Volt effortless switches between electricity and gas, and delivers a wonderful driving experience every time you are behind the wheel!
Under the hood, there are two functions, a standard 1.5L gas engine, and an 18.4 kWh lithium-ion battery. When the battery is fully charged, the Volt can drive up to 53 miles on a single charge. Once the battery is depleted, the standard engine kicks in, and gets an additional 367 miles, for a total range of 420 miles! There are two charging options, the 120-Volt portable cord, or the available 240-volt charging unit for at home charging, which fully charges the volt in 4.5 hours!
