About The Chevrolet Volt
Is the Chevy Volt being discontinued?
In February of 2019, Chevrolet announced that production of the Chevy Volt is being discontinued. This will make 2019 the last model year for this plug-in hybrid. The Volt's legacy, however, has paved the way for incredible advancements that drivers will continue to benefit from for many years to come.
Does the Chevy Volt have a transmission?
Yes, the Chevy Volt does have a transmission that serves the same purpose of shifting gears as would be needed on a traditional car. In model years 2016 and later, the vehicle is outfitted with a Voltec drivetrain specifically known as a 5ET40 Electrified Transaxle.
How far can I travel on a full charge in the Chevy Volt?
The estimated range for a Chevy Volt on electric power alone will depend on the specific model year, road conditions, and other factors. In older generation Chevy Volts, such as the 2016 Volt, the estimated range is 38 miles on a full charge on exclusively electric power. For more recent model years, including the 2018 and 2019 Volts, driving range on electric power is up to an estimated 53 miles.1 After that point, the vehicle's gas-combustion engine takes over and regenerative braking can help to recharge the battery while on-the-go.
How long do Chevy Volt batteries last?
The life expectancy of a hybrid car battery can vary based on how often the battery is charged, how much you drive the car, and how well the vehicle is maintained overall. Generally, lithium-ion batteries last for an estimated 10 years before needing to be replaced.
Does the Chevy Volt engine charge the battery?
Yes, the Chevy Volt uses regenerative braking, designed to re-charge the lithium-ion battery while driving. During braking, electronic circuits cut off power to the car's engine and use the kinetic energy to run a charge to the battery—similar to how a generator operates. The Chevy Volt can also be plugged in when not in use to charge its battery.

The Chevrolet Volt has been in production since 2010 and began its second generation of production with a major design overhaul in 2016. This plug-in hybrid sedan offers a lithium-ion battery with a range of up to an estimated 53 miles on a full charge in its recent 2018 and 2019 model years.1
Overall, the Chevy Volt is an excellent choice for drivers who are interested in a plug-in vehicle but may not be ready to commit exclusively to electric power. Its design also offers seating for up to five, yet is compact enough to maintain great handling and maneuverability.

Reviews for Chevrolet Volt
Affordable Hybrid done right
This is a very economical car to drive. A charge will last for most daily driving, or a modest commute. It easily charges over night, and there are lots of charging stations around. When on long road trips the car gets fabulous milage. The switching between electric and gas is seamless. The performance is amazing - no gutless wonder here! The interior is modest but well done. Roomy enough for 4 people and some stuff. Hatchback is great for grocery trips, etc. The only downside is the rear visibility isn't great - but the backup camera compensates for most of that. Got a great deal at Carmax. So far, super happy with this car.
- Fuel Economy: Really great range on a full charge - lasts all day. Excellent milage using gas.
- Power: Surprisingly powerful. This car has some get up and go in it.
- Interior Space: Quite roomy and plenty of space for cargo in a small compact.
- Visibility: Rear and rear quarter visibility isn't the greatest.
Chevy Volt is the best kept secret!
The Volt is a really nice car almost worthy of a different badge (In other words, not Chevrolet) because nothing about it feels cheap. Yet at the same time, the price on the used market is very reasonable. And the best part about it is not going to the gas station. I've had this car for 6 months and I've only filled it up 1 time. Going to the gas station is simply no longer part of my weekly routine. I leave the house each morning with a full charge. Since it has a gasoline range extender, there is a no compromise with this car. I can drive it across country just like any other car as long as I don't mind putting gasoline in it like every one else.
- Value: Cheaper to own and operate than it appears on paper because I have essentially no gas bill and the electricity to power it is dirt cheap.
- Styling: It's a beautiful car.
Great for Wallet and Conscious
My fiance and I share the car. She was changing jobs which would increase her commute, meaning our gas costs were about to go up significantly. She has free charging at her office, and the range of the 2nd generation volts is enough to get her there and back. We made the move on the Volt because over half of our payment would be paid purely by gas savings. We also love to convenience of the 55 like range plus the 8.5 (ish) gallon gas backup. This gives us about 400 miles for longer trips with mpg in the mid 50s. I have a bike too, and the hatchback and folding back seats mean we can fit a ton in the back which has been amazing for us too. We've been very happy with our purchase!
