2018 Chevrolet Volt is a plug-in electric hybrid car produced by General Motors with the Chevrolet brand and available in the United States since December 2010. However, GM avoids using the term “hybrid” and prefers calling it the car Electric with autonomy extender, as the traction motor is electric in any driving situation. On March 5, 2012, was elected Car of the Year 2012. The Volt prototype was officially presented at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) on January 7, 2007, in Detroit. An amended model was presented at the Shanghai Auto Show in April 2007 in Shanghai, China. At the time of the presentation, the Volt project had just one year of life.
2018 Chevrolet Volt Design
2018 Chevrolet Volt features a bold, two-volume, half-length body, slim, slim and so sporty. To give you a touch of sportiness more think of elements like the rear spoiler or the massive bumper shield, the front headlights of sharp cutting, the low pavilion and the short tail and collected. In addition, the same height of the car body, very small, makes the car even more attractive with just a glance.
The cockpit, suitable for four people, features a decidedly futuristic cockpit, as it immediately blurs the complete lack of analog instruments. Instead of the dashboard, there is a digital display that provides speed information and anything else you can find from the normal analog dashboards of most other cars. A second display dominating the center console is characterized by an original driving efficiency indicator, consisting of a sphere displayed on the display that moves according to the driver’s driving style: keeping it in the center of the display optimises efficiency And the battery pack’s autonomy remains at acceptable levels.
2018 Chevrolet Volt Engine
Another type of engine is the hydrogen fuel cell, which was mounted on the Volt model presented at the Shanghai Auto Show in 2007. Other possibilities mentioned by GM could be a pure ethanol engine and another diesel for the engine, Europe, fueled by biodiesel fuel.
These motors are small because they have the only function to actuate the electric generator that recharges the batteries. In addition, they will have a fixed and optimal cruise regime and this will cause their consumption to be further reduced, around 1 liter every 20 km. Chevrolet Volt is obviously for long trips requiring additional engine intervention. For the daily routine in the city, the 60 km provided by batteries charged with the home current will cost far less than their equivalent in gasoline. The other big advantage, of course, is the zero pollution produced directly by the car.
2018 Chevrolet Volt is equipped with two electric motors, one 150hp header and one 87hp auxiliary that comes into operation to support the first when the car is over 100km / h. To these two engines is added a third of the 1.4-liter cylindrical endothermic petrol, which helps the first two and never intervenes directly in the propulsion of the car, but only serves to recharge the auxiliary motor.
