Next-gen 2016 Chevrolet Volt spied in Michigan

Chevrolet Volt was launched in late 2010 and is also sold as Opel/Vauxhall Ampera in Europe and Holden Volt in Australia.

The Volt/Ampera is the best-selling plug-in hybrid electric car in the world and the work on the next-generation model has began.

Spied testing in Michigan, the next-generation Volt shows an evolutionary design with a more curvaceous bodywork and a steeply raked windscreen.

Reportedly the next Volt rides on an all-new dedicated platform instead of today’s Cruze-based platform.

Details are limited, but reportedly the range from a fully charged battery, before the combustion engine kicks in, will be increased from today’s 40-mile range to a around 60 miles.

GM executives have also hinted that the new model will be cheaper than the outgoing model.

Some sources have also talked about a new entry-level model with a smaller battery, that would bring down the price in U.S. to around $30,000 (£18k).
