The new 2013 Chevrolet Volt has been modified from the previous model and is taking a firm stand against increasing competition in the electric car market.
Not only does the 2013 Volt have a larger battery, but the MPGe will rise from 94 to 98.
While most changes are minor, the biggest change the Volt will see is the addition of a “Hold Drive” button. This will allow drivers to conserve the battery power for use at a certain time. This will be useful when drivers enter city boundaries where electric vehicles are given the option to drive in priority lanes.
Even though the Volt’s fuel economy will still be lower than the Nissan Leaf, Ford Focus Electric, and Honda Fit EV, it does have a greater range—380 miles, enabling it to outrun other electric vehicles.
The upgrades the Volt has undergone are impressive and Chevrolet is eagerly awaiting customers to get inside one of them.
