2016 Chevrolet Volt will get a bigger 1.5-liter four-cylinder petrol engine

Article by Christian A., on October 28, 2014

The 2016 Chevrolet Volt will be introduced in January at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show but details are already starting to emerge. According to General Motors, the next-generation Volt plug-in hybrid will get a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine which will act as its range extender, which means that the new version will get a bigger engine that the current 1.4-liter powerplant.

This engine is part of a new, more fuel-efficient family of small engines that will be used by the new GM vehicles globally. Although previous reports said that the new Volt will get a three-cylinder engine, GM has other plans and we don’t expect to see a problem with the bigger engine as the plug-in hybrid car will definitely be more fuel-efficient than its predecessor.

According to GM CEO Mary Barra, the new 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine will be built at the company’s engine plant in Flint, Michigan while the battery cells will be supplied by LG Chem in Holland, Michigan.

GM promised that the all-electric range of the upcoming 2016 Volt will be bigger than the 38 miles offered by the current version.
