The 2015 Chevrolet Volt is the star of GM’s line of hybrid cars. It won many awards for best fuel efficiency on American market, and in 2014 it was declared as the most fuel efficient vehicle with combined gas and electric powertrain. New model will come with slight improvements allowing it to stay on top spots in its segment.
We are still not sure in which way 2015 Chevrolet Volt’s design is going. Since the first hybrid vehicle rolled down an American road they didn’t stop competing with sporty, futuristic and almost alien look. Toyota Prius was always leading the way but there were many complaints about the looks of that model. After some time we guessed that Chevy people couldn’t continue competing with Japanese in futuristic exteriors so they made 2014 Volt to look more like standard Chevrolet vehicles than like an alien spacecraft. With this brave new design for one hybrid vehicle they won some new buyers. So we hope that the 2015 Chevrolet Volt will keep its new Chevy grille, and proudly wear its Chevrolet badge on top.
Changes For 2015 Chevrolet Volt
Last year’s Chevrolet Volt model came with really functional, elegant and comfortable interior. We hope that in 2015 model year interior is not going to change much. It came with top quality materials, nice variety of colors, comfortable sitting arrangements and number of hi tech features while everything is powered with modern lithium-ion battery. Only thing that we hope is going to be changed in 2015 Chevrolet Volt is the cargo area, which in 2014 model was simply too small, but it’s a common problem with these types of cars.
One of the best things in last year’s Chevrolet Volt was its powertrain. It had the powerful combination of 149 horsepower electric with 89 horsepower gas engine, which worked as a generator for the electric engines and was refilling the battery too. This combination is probably not going to be replaced, since the last Chevrolet Volt model was declared to be the most fuel efficient hybrid vehicle on the market for 2014 model year.
At this point we have no confirmation about the power of the powertrain but as we said this is something that will not be changed, at least the reports are suggesting that. Fuel economy is another thing that we are eagerly awaiting to see and we could hear that it could come with about 38 miles of electric only range before battery is discharged while the total range is about 380 miles.
2015 Chevrolet Volt Price
Price for the 2015 Chevrolet Volt is not out yet, but we expect that GM will announce it during the summer or fall of this year and that we will see this nice hybrid in our store in the beginning of 2015, maybe even earlier. Price of last year’s Chevrolet model went from $33,000 to $36,000 and we do expect that new model will remain in this region also. Have in mind that most states offer incentives when buying electric and hybrid cars so you can expect that the total price you need to pay will be significantly lower.
Chevrolet Volt is one of the pioneers of American hybrid cars industry, it comes better in the every new model year. If GM continues with these nice updates it can topple Toyota Prius easily from the best-selling hybrid vehicle throne but that will not be so easily done. What we do know for sure is that competition between these two car makers and other players in segment will force all car makers to further improve their powertrains and vehicles.
