The 2019 Chevy Volt has an athletic design, impressive performance and intelligent driving technology making driving to your destination all the better. The Volt is a four-door extended-range plug-in hybrid that offers as much as 53 pure electric miles as well as 420 miles with a full tank of gas and charge. There are many color choices to choose from when it comes to the exterior of the vehicle.

1.5-liter four-cylinder engine (which acts as a range extender).
Avail. Engine Type
The Volt’s 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine and electric motor, combined, produce 149 horsepower. No other engine option is available. Not to worry, because this Chevy will keep you moving in the city and on the highway.
Running at 53 mph, the Volt’s all-electric range is one of the loftiest of any plug-in hybrid. With the help of the gasoline engine, the Volt has a combined range of about 420 miles. Another way to recharge the battery is by using the regenerative brakes which also work to capture the energy. On electric-only power, the vehicle gets 106 MPGe combined.
There are several methods to charging the Volt. Using a standard 3-prong 120-volt outlet you can charge the battery in 13 hours. If you revert to the 240-volt outlet, you can reduce the charging time.
The 3.6-kWh comes as an optional onboard charger, taking the Volt about 4.5 hours to charge. There’s also a 7.2-kWh built-in charger which is new for 2019. It takes 2.3-hours of loading time.
The 240-volt is standard on Premier models and available on the LT. The new 7.2 kW onboard charger provides up to 22 miles per hour charging, with the available 240-volt charging unit (which requires professional installation). It's twice as fast as the preceding model.
Driving and Handling
The Volt has a feature called Regen on Demand. Regen on Demand allows the driver to press a paddle on the steering wheel to trigger more aggressive regenerative braking. Volt helps to recharge its own battery through the regenerative braking, which catches the lost kinetic energy and shifts back to the battery.
The 2019 Volt comes with 17” 5-spoke painted aluminum wheels, body-color power outside mirrors, intermittent front wipers, LED Daytime Running Lamps, LED headlamps, LED taillamps, LED center high-mounted stop/brake, low-rolling resistance 215/50R17 all-season, Blackwall tires, and a tire inflator kit. Available are the 17” 5-split spoke machined-face Gloss Black wheels, Blackout Package, body-color heated power outside mirrors, comfort package, front and rear Black bowtie emblems, front license plate bracket, illuminated charge port, interior protection package, LT Driver Confidence Package, Outdoor vehicle cover, power convenience package, wheel locks, and winter/summer floor mats package.

The Volt seats five people. The front row has an acceptable amount of room. The Volt offers a driver’s power seat, standard on Premier and optional on the LT trim.
The Volt features a well-built and quiet cabin. Manually adjustable front seats and cloth upholstery are standard. A power-adjustable driver’s seat is available for 2019. There are a 10.6 cubic feet of cargo space in the Volt, which is a reputable amount of space for a compact hybrid, and the Volt’s hatchback body style makes good use of the area.
