Next Generation Chevy Volt to debut at 2015 NAIAS

7 August 2014

The next generation Chevrolet Volt will debut at the 2015 North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January, Global Chevrolet Chief Marketing Officer Tim Mahoney said today. Mahoney made the announcement during the Center for Automotive Research Management Briefing Seminars in Traverse City, Michigan.

Volt sales were up 13% in July to 2,020 units; more than 65,000 have been sold since it was introduced in 2010.

Volt owners are driving more than 63% of their overall miles in electric vehicle mode, collectively logging more than 500 million gas-free miles since the Volt’s retail debut. That has saved more than 25 million gallons of gasoline.

The 2014 Volt has been recognized for its safety, most recently receiving the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety 2014 Top Safety Pick+ designation for vehicles equipped with an available Forward Collision Alert system.

I hope the next gen is noteworthy. 25 million gallons is about 1/2 million barrels of oil, which we in the US consume in about one hour. Not much but a good trend to begin with.

The 2016 Volt will have 50 mile electric range, a 3 cylinder 1L engine and sell for $30,000. They are heading in the right direction.
