Report: Some details on the 2016 Chevrolet Volt surface

AutoBlog recently conducted a rundown of what’s currently known for the next-generation 2016 Chevrolet Volt.

The new model is due at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show early next year and is promised to be more fuel and electrically efficient, according to GM’s executive vice president, Mark Reuss. The current Volt is rated at the equivalent of 98 MPGe and 37 mpg on premium gasoline with a 38-mile electric-only range. Though, no word exists as to how much better the new ’16 Volt will fair, but hints of better aerodynamics, less weight, and less friction within the powertrain indicate that improvements are on the way regardless.

Rumors suggested a downsized range-extending motor from the current Volt’s 1.4L mill–a 1.0L three-cylinder is supposedly in the works as a replacement. There are also hints of new batteries with more power and better designs to help increase EV-capabilities. Other reports also suggest a hike in on-board technology, which really shouldn’t come as a surprise either–the current Volt is already a bit of a computer and car-geek’s wet dream.

Additionally, GM did say they will focus their marketing efforts for the Volt in regional markets where it’s already proved to be a decent seller, like in the Northeast and the West Coast–the two crucial areas where urbanite liberals interested in alternative propulsion seem to congregate.

Either way, we won’t know the full specifics until the 2016 Chevrolet Volt gets revealed, which should be sometime within the coming months.
