Here is the all new 2012 Chevrolet Volt taken at the Auto Show in St Louis Missouri. The Manufacturer says Volt is unique among electric vehicles because you have two sources of energy. You have an electric source-a battery-that allows you to drive gas-free for an EPA-estimated 35 miles. And there's also an onboard gas generator that produces electricity so you can go up to a total of 375 additional miles on a full tank of gas. On electric it gets 93 MPG. Chevy designers constantly talk about form and function but when it comes to Volt, Director of Design Bob Boniface will tell you that they didn't compromise aesthetics to enable function. The result? A vehicle that looks sporty, quick, smooth and modern, yet achieves an extremely low coefficient of drag.
Countless hours in the wind tunnel influenced the styling of many exterior components including mirrors, a closed grill, rocker panels and the rear spoiler. In fact, the vertical blades that go from the bottom of the spoiler to the bottom of the bumper were designed specifically to trick the air into separating from the bumper more quickly, giving Volt extraordinary aerodynamics.
Display Advanced Thinking. See everything that matters. Two interactive LCD color screens constantly provide feedback; like real-time info on energy usage and power flow. Efficiency feedback based on your driving style. Even how much charge remains in the battery. One screen actually allows you to program a charging schedule based on electricity rate plans. So if rates are lower at certain times of the day or night, you can program Volt to take advantage of every kilowatt.
