To 30 MPH...

Testing by Motor Trend has shown that the 2016 Chevrolet Volt easily beats figures listed by General Motors. As we reported on previously, the Volt can zip from 0 to 60 MPH in 7.1 seconds, much quicker than GM's official time of 8.4 seconds.

But what's perhaps even more impressive is how quickly the 2016 Volt gets from 0 to 30 MPH: 2.2 seconds.

For comparison, here are the Motor Trend test results for the non-performance Tesla Model S 85.

  • 0-30 MPH - 2.3 seconds
  • 0-60 MPH - 5.0 seconds
So, the 2016 Volt is quicker to 30 MPH than the non-performance Model S 85, not a result we expected to see.

However, the performance version, the P85, smokes the 2016 Volt to 30 MPH with a time of 1.7 seconds. But still, the Volt's quickness to 30 will make the new plug-in car seem very zippy in around-town, city driving.
