The 2016 Chevrolet Volt has finally been revealed.

The next generation not only features 50 miles of range, but a rating of 41 mpg in extended range mode.  Also improving for 2016 is the overall performance of the car – faster to 60 mph, much faster to 30 mph.

For all the stats you can check out our recap here…this article is really about getting a first look at the next generation of Chevy Volt in both pictures and videos!

Editor’s Note: If you want to see all the live shots from the floor of the NAIAS, you can check out our crippling amount of shots here, while a video of the big reveal (and that of the Chevrolet Bolt) can be found here.

Although you can also check out all the technical details from the chart GM provided us at the bottom of the gallery as well!

Looks like it may come equipped with Michelin Energy Saver A/S tires. They are the most efficient tire that I know of and better than the Fuel Max in all respects except snow traction. So that is a bit of a boost as well. They are not to be compared with the Premier A/S or PureContact as those are grand touring tires with better performance but less efficiency.

Great work Jay. You really don’t sleep I guess, it must be 1:30 your time, the day before the most exhausting show of the year. Be healthy ami!

Jay Cole

Story checks out…after 1 here,(=

GM didn’t release these with the original presser, they didn’t go live until after 1.

But not a big deal – I’m not a strong sleeper so I usually work until about 2am anyway.

Added a half dozen videos too.

Vastly improved interior with modern instrument panel. Love that huge center armrest!

Rear end looks surprisingly fresh and quite different from the rest of the Chevrolet family.

Unusual sculpting on the hood, and interesting to note it carries over to the roof. Again, much fresher than most other Chevrolet family members.

Thank Goodness for a NORMAL center console set of controls – the dorky concept controls in my ’12 Volt drive me crazy trying to change the climate controls, etc!!!
Now I’m all in when my lease is up in October.
Can’t wait.

Not changed in the important ways. It’s an rvution of a poorly selling vehicle without fixing the issues that made it sell poorly.

Interior is at least as cramped. Rear seat headroom even worse. They need a CUV. Seating for 5 is a joke. You could claim setting for 5 in the current volt by making a bench seat with no place for your feet. Suitable for child seat shows a lack of understanding.

Waiting for Bolt announcement.

I was excited until I read the interior dimensions. This car is TINY inside – no rear headroom or rear legroom.

None of the rear seats are for adults, so GM can’t honestly call this a 5-passenger car.

Its interior is smaller than a Fiat 500L, almost as small as a 500 or Civic 2-door. My enthusiasm has been curbed.

This is no more a 5 passenger car than the current Volt.

Fail

Biggest news here: GM has decided how they’re going to pitch this thing, and I think it’s great: current ten Volt owners averaged 900 miles between fill ups, expect more than 1000 miles between fill ups on this one. It quickly sums up what you can expect in day to day driving, without stumbling all over EV range and REx mode mpg. That shuts up anybody who was about to scoff at “only 41mpg??” and helps people think twice before they say “only 50 miles – but i drive further than that!”.

typo above: “current *gen* Volt owners”

can’t find the “we’re not worthy” emoticon..
Thanks Jay!

Bill Howland

Great Videos Jay, thanks for burning the midnight oil on them.

I was thinking about a Tesla S for my third car after not caring for the ELR, but now, another Volt is a very strong contender.

Richard

Love the design overall. Back reminds me of the Civic coupe. I hope those headlights are HID or LED this time around…

ModernMarvelFan

More conventional dash, but nice…

Rob Stark

They have a whole section in the vids about aerodynamics but don’t give us a Cd number?

Eric Cote

THe dash looks very nice, as does the maps on display on the center stack. That almost looks like Google Maps, which if that were integrated, would be an awesome feature.

Eric Cote

Rear seating question: Do the cup holders fold in somewhere, or do people have to straddle that too?

The video detailing the design process showed a center stack much different than the production model. The video shows a center stack with capacitive controls in places like the gen 1 volt. The production version uses all buttons. I hate a full center stack of capacitive controls but the video shows capacitive controls for those that are not used frequently and it really made the center stack look luxurious. There were knobs for the frequent controls and clean design for the rest. The buttons GM uses look like something from my kids toys. I really needed something that didn’t look like the rest of GMs switchgear to get me on board for this (it is hideous in my opinion, but I am used to looking at Audi, VW, and other brands that focus on switchgear aesthetics and quality). No HID/LED and this switchgear will probably cross this off my list. I will wait for BMW plug-in with longer REX range or Model III.

EV_Dreamin

LED Headlamps! Awesome.

That “5th” seat is a joke. I suppose it’s better than nothing, but I can’t use this to transport 5 adults. I can transport 5 adults in my LEAF. It’s tight, but it’s possible. There’s no way an adult can sit in the 5th seat. Volt is ruled out once again.
