Report: 2013 Chevrolet Volt receives a variety of changes

2012 Chevrolet Volt

Amongst the order guides recently released by General Motors, the 2013 Chevrolet Volt appears to have the most significant changes.

The 2013 Volt is getting an updated powertrain, with a new feature called “EV Hold Mode,” which allows drivers to switch between extended range and battery pack power to get the most out of each. This feature has been available on Europe’s Opel Ampera since its release.

GM has standardized several new optional features to the Volt, as well, such as lane departure warning, MyLink and forward collision alert.

Mentioned additionally in the guides were some notes that the revised Volt is changing its roof top and rear lift gate from black to being body colored, which is a move that goes against the current coloring-scheme trending in the latest and greatest sedans.

Production for the 2013 Chevrolet Volt should start around fall while an entirely revamped version of the Volt is anticipated for the 2014 model.
