GM already working on 2nd generation Chevrolet Volt

Article by Christian A., on November 26, 2010

Even before the public gets to see the first generation of the Chevrolet Volt, General Motors was reported to already be working on the second iteration of the Chevrolet Volt. It appears that GM has discovered ways to cut production costs so that all the upgrades will be featured on the second version of the car.

Autocar reports that General Motors will focus on the 1.4-liter gasoline engine. However, there are rumors that the parent company might replace it with a newer version specifically optimized for better mileage.

Slated to go on sale in the next few days, the first generation Chevrolet Volt will be priced at $41,000, or $33,500 net of full federal income tax credit.

It’s also interesting that General Motors will lease the Volt for $350 for 36 months with an initial payment of $2500. The delivered car will come with a 120-volt charge cord and the chance to be one of the 4,400 buyers to get a free 240-volt charging station, including home installation.

Future owners may ask for assistance by phone or Internet 24/7. It will feature a 1.4-liter gasoline engine that produces 84hp at 4,800 rpm along with an electric propulsion system that delivers 111 kW (drive motor) and 54 kW (generator motor).

This vehicle can reach a top speed of 100 mph (160 km/h), with an electric range of 25 to 50 miles. Of course, there are several factors to that will affect these figures. It’s claimed that the extended range reaches 350 miles with a fully charged battery and a full tank.
