New for 2019

Changes to the 2019 Volt include a new 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with an Energy App that provides real-time feedback on how range is affected based on a variety of driving styles and conditions, a new digital rearview camera, and a wireless charging pad for compatible phones. Pacific Blue Metallic joins the color palette, and a new Jet Black/Porcelain Blue interior is offered on the Premier trim. The Volt also finally offers a driver's power seat, standard on Premier and optional on the LT trim.

A new 7.2 kilowatt charging system is available, reducing charging time by nearly half, down to 2.3 hours when plugged into a 240V Level 2 station. The system is standard on the Volt Premier and optional on Volt LT.

Trim Levels (Interior and Exterior Options)

The Volt is a four-door extended-range plug-in hybrid. Two trim levels are available.

2019 LT: The comes with automatic climate control, proximity key and push-button start, 17-inch aluminum wheels, tilt and telescoping steering wheel, remote start, LED headlights, 4G LTE mobile hotspot and an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with integrated Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

2019 Premier: The Premier adds heated leather seats, auto-dimming rearview mirror, leather-wrapped steering wheel, Bose audio system, and heated exterior power mirrors.

Performance and Fuel Economy

The 2019 Chevrolet Volt employs a gas-electric hybrid powertrain driving the front wheels. The electric drive system functions as the primary propulsion while the 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine acts as a range extender. Power is rated at 149 hp and 294 lb-ft of torque, with an EPA rating of 43/42 city/highway. All-electric mileage is rated at 106 MPGe combined city/highway. The Volt can go about 53 miles on electric-only propulsion before the gas engine kicks in. Charging a depleted battery takes approximately 13 hours using a 120-volt (Level 1) charger and 4.5 hours using a 240-volt (Level 2 charger). Using the new 7.2 kW charger reduces that time to 2.3 hours when using a Level 2 charger. In Motor Trend testing, a 2017 Volt Premier hit 60 mph in 7.5 seconds and stopped from 60 mph in 116 feet.

Safety

The 2018 Chevrolet Volt received a five-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA (out of a possible five stars). The Volt received a front crash prevention designation of Superior by the IIHS, with tests performed on a Volt equipped with the Driver Confidence Package 2 (Superior is the highest possible rating). The Volt fully avoided a collision in 12- and 25-mph high-speed autobrake tests.

On the LT, the LT Driver Confidence package adds rear park assist, rear cross-traffic alter, and lane change alert. For the Premier, the Driver Confidence 1 package includes rear cross-traffic alert and blind spot/lane change alerts. Driver Confidence Package 2 adds on automatic high beams, following distance indicator, forward collision alert, and lane keep assist.

Utility (Cargo Space and Interior Room)

Though the four-door hatchback configuration adds a practical side, the 2019 Chevrolet Volt sacrifices a bit of interior space to make room for the battery, providing only 90.3 cubic feet of space. Front legroom is 42.1 inches, while rear passengers have 34.7 inches of legroom. Cargo volume is a slim 10.6 cubic feet.

Technology

The 2019 Chevrolet Volt comes standard with a 6-speaker stereo, keyless entry and ignition with remote start, 4G LTE with wireless hotspot, and an 8.0-inch touchscreen featuring SiriusXM radio, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. An 8-speaker Bose system is available on the LT trim level and standard on Premier. Satellite navigation is also standard on Premier models.

What We Think

When the second-generation Chevrolet Volt debuted in 2016, we said in our First Test that "this Volt is a whole new deal, as revolutionary as anything else out there." With an impressive 53 miles of range in full-electric mode and 420 miles total, the Volt appeals to both EV and traditional customers. If only the interior space were as impressive. In a comparison test with the Prius Prime, we said that the "Volt's packaging is terribly compromised" and "even if the pilot is of average height, rear headroom is subhuman." If space isn't a consideration, the Volt is worth a look for its stellar range and sprightly driving dynamics.
