2018 Model Year Chevrolet Volt Soldiers On With Slight Changes
Only slight changes will appear as the Chevrolet Volt moves into Model Year 2018.
Additional electric range will have to wait until at least 2019.
This information comes to us via friend of InsideEVs Brian Ro, a Volt and Bolt owner, who posted this to the Chevrolet Volt Owner’s Group on Facebook:
“2018 Volt fleet order guide is out.”
“From scanning, there’s a driver’s confidence package (optional) that’s new for the LT trim, and 3 new colors.”
The Driver Confidence Package includes blind-spot monitors, rear cross-traffic alert, and rear park assist.
Green Car Reports notes:
“…the Volt LT loses its previously standard leather-wrapped steering wheel in favor of a urethane unit.”
“To get a leather wheel requires purchase of an additional Comfort Package, which cost $460 this year.”
The 2018 Volt get some color changes too.
Out for 2018:
- Siren Red Tintcoat
- Citron Green Metallic
- Heather Gray Metallic
- Pepperdust Metallic
In for 2018:
- Cajun Red Tintcoat
- Green Mist Metallic
- Satin Steel Metallic
Pricing hasn’t been announced, but it’s expected to be similar to that of the 2017 Volt. Production of the ’18 Volt should begin in July with first deliveries to dealerships starting in August.
