GM first unveiled the Chevrolet Volt concept in 2007, it is GM’s first plug-in hybrid vehicle. Chevrolet Volt is a , four-passenger that uses a gas engine to create additional electricity to extend its range. it is similar to cadillac sixteen

Chevrolet Volt concept is based on Chevrolet roughly Cobalt-size platform. It is powered by the E-flex System – GM’s next-generation electric propulsion system. The system with a 160-hp electric motor drives the front wheels. That motor is powered by a 400-pound, 16-killowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack (same kind of batteries used in laptop computers). The battery-powered stores as much energy as 12 Prius hybrids, can propel the Volt for up to 40 miles.

The motor can be fully charged by plugging it into a 110-volt outlet for approximately six hours a day. When the lithium-ion battery is fully charged, the Volt can deliver 40 city miles of pure electric vehicle range. When the battery is depleted, a 1.0 litre, three-cylinder turbocharged engine spins at constant rpm to create electricity and replenish the battery. Chevy Volt offers triple-digit fuel economy and can travel up to 640 miles without a stop at the gas station or the electric outlet.
