CHEVROLET VOLT: NOT ONLY AN ELECTRIC CARThe Chevrolet Volt is an electric car that doesn’t depend exclusively on the electric battery, and it is not a hybrid either. It is the first revolutionary extended-range electric vehicle (E-REV). The Chevrolet Volt is always electrically powered by the drive unit Voltec: the combustion engine feeds the electric engine. Thanks to the motor-generator, the autonomy grows to over 500 km.
When the motor-generator takes charge of the battery and goes unnoticed, which is the result? The Chevrolet Volt is an electric car that can be used for long distances. When the battery runs out, the engine-generator takes the initiative so you should not be afraid to run out of battery in the Chevrolet Volt.
This is due in part to the excellent acoustic insulation and also to the very smooth operation of the generator. But the main reason is that the Volt is constantly driven by electric propulsion system Voltec®. The only difference is the source of energy used to do it.
