The Chevy Volt is an extended-range, all-electric vehicle. Powered by an electric motor producing 112 kW (150 bhp) and 273 lb-ft (370 Nm), the car can run up to 40 miles (65 km) on electrical power alone. After this distance is covered, a small gasoline engine kicks in, which serves as a generator to charge the 16-kWh lithium-ion battery and extend the range to about 340 miles (547 km).

Another leakage in the car market and some more guys to appreciate it. Yes, we do appreciate when we can see the new version/model before the official debut at motor shows. Today it’s Chevy’s turn to show us some spice. Their new electric vehicle (car), Chevy Volt, appears in a few shots with all sorts of “models” that don’t seem to be prepared. Honestly, we’d have expected young women close to the car instead of ties and suits

But back to Chevy Volt, the company released a couple of teaser images last few months but this time we have it for real so ladies and gents, this is how the new Chevrolet Volt is going to look. That’s the actual production model. How do you like it? Beats Prius? Would you buy one?
