Article by Andrew Christian, on November 20, 2014

The 2016 Chevrolet Volt will make its debut at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show but the manufacturer releases more details as the big event is getting closer. According to General Motors, the charging system found in the next-generation Volt is now easier to use in order to recharge the battery. Based on GPS data, the vehicle will know when it arrives “home” and will automatically adjust to that setting when it is at that location.

Moreover, users will be able to pre-set their vehicle’s charging level to 8 amps or 12 amps on 120V only and whether they wish to charge immediately or set a departure time for each day of the week.

In addition, the new charge status indicators show when the charging has begun, while delayed charging is show with additional tones. The system will indicate even if the charge port door was left open after unplugging.

Also, the 2016 Volt features an indicator light on the top of the instrument panel that will show the charge level. Chevrolet will also offer a new 120V portable cord set with a length of 25 feet. For improved accessibility, there is a new storage bin for the cord located on the left side of the rear cargo are.
