Review: Chevrolet Volt

Chevrolet Volt 2017 is offering up to 53 pure electric miles (85 km) and up to 420 miles (675km) with a full charge and a full tank of gas. Volt is powered by two electric motors that work in unison to optimise efficiency and conserve electric charge. When the battery runs low on electric charge, Chevrolet Volt seamlessly engages its gas-powered generator to keep going for a total range of up to 420 miles (675 km) on a full charge and full tank of gas. Volt recharges with a 120-volt portable cord in around 13 hours or with a professionally installed 240-volt charging system in around 4.5 hours.
