Today, Bachman Chevrolet will show you a more detailed look at the battery and generator found in the 2017 Chevy Volt. The Volt is an electric car with a backup plan. It runs on an electric charge and generates additional energy through a gas-powered generator when the battery runs out — giving you the confidence to go as far as you want.
CHEVY VOLT POWER SYSTEM, GENERATOR AND BATTERY
The power system found within the 2017 Chevy Volt is intuitive and unique. The Chevy Volt is powered by two electric motors that work in unison to optimizeefficiency and conserve electric charge while providing responsive power and torque.
With a fully charged lithium ion battery, the Volt is capable of driving up to 53 miles without using gas. The second generation battery is both lighter and holds more energy than the first generation. When the battery runs low on electric charge, the Volt seamlessly engages the gas powered generator to keep you going for a total range up to 420 miles on a full charge and full tank of gas.
Additionally, the Volt looks for ways to smartly use energy while you’re on the road, like using its own momentum to recharge the battery as it slows down.
Unlike other electric cars out there that may lead to being stranded after one battery runs out, the 2017 Volt will keep you rolling.
