The new Chevrolet Volt also promises to be quicker, by getting 60MPH from zero in just 8.4 seconds, which is a 0.4 more than the last model. However, it remains conceptually consistent with the original one. The following feature has been upgraded and installed in the new Chevrolet Volt 2017:

Powertrain: The new 2017 Chevrolet Volt has a fully revised “Voltec” Powertrain- a plugin hybrid, which starts with the smaller appearing battery pack. With a 1.5 litre capacity the first of GM’s new 4 cylinder direct injection engine. It promises to develop 101 horsepower with the compression ratio of 12.5:1, as compared to the first 84hp, 1.4l, & 10.5:1 CR, on regular gas. This has also reduced the Powertrain weight by 100 pounds, then the other cars.

Battery: With new revised T-shaped compact power lithium –ion cells, the electric power is increased from 16.5 to 18.4 kWh. It has also dropped the mass from 288 to 192 cells, as in the previous model, with charging time of 4.5 hours. This new battery pack enables the new Chevrolet Volt a range of 50 miles which is 12 miles more than the previous model. A new feature is added Regen on Demand’, which allows the driver to engage regenerative braking, by using the paddle given behind the steering wheel. In this mode the electric motors recycles the energy more aggressively as soon as the driver lifts off the accelerator by supplying the deceleration, and turns it into a one pedal car. However, the battery charging conditions are optimized by the GPS services.

Design and Features: the new Chevrolet Volt 2017 can be said alike with the cat whose rump is in the air, with its rounded, pointed, and more sculpted nose. But this does not make it much different from the conventional cars. The insides of the Volt’s first model have been replaced by dial switches making it more conventional and richer in looks by emphasizing blue lights inside. The two eight inch touch screen provides all the necessary information to the driver. The driver can find all the info he needs with the touch of a button. The middle seat at the back has also been squeezed.

Chassis: In new 2017 Chevrolet Volt the body structure is stiffer than the before with one major change in the front sub frame cradle, which is now solidly mounted rather than rubber mounted as in the previous model. This has reduced the transmission noise fairly. The roof of new volt is now 0.2” lower and wheel base is lifted by 0.4”. The curb weight is also reduced by 200 pounds, which is called the enemy of efficiency.
