PostHeaderIcon 10 Most Fuel Efficient Cars of All Time

From hatches to muscles, cars of all shapes and sizes are adopting green technology. Whether autonomous cars will become a reality or not is a different question; electric cars are the future. Even though the ‘EV’ cars were introduced barely a decade ago, the kind of transformation and innovations we’ve seen in the last couple of years makes the whole thing look like a yesteryear concept. In this article, we’ve listed out the ten most fuel-efficient vehicles.

But before that, let’s just put the basic questions to rest once-in-for-all: the difference between EV, Hybrid, and Plug-in Hybrid – an electric vehicle is the one that runs solely on electric power. You don’t have a combustion engine here whatsoever. A hybrid engine is the one where the car will charge its own batteries on the run with the gasoline engine. As for the plug-in hybrids, the car can be plugged into electricity points to charge the batteries. Now that we have clarified the obvious and bored you enough, let’s move on to the heart of the article.

PostHeaderIcon 2019 Chevrolet Volt Gets Improved Charging System And Other Range-Extending Tech

First making the scene in 2010, the compact five-door Chevy Volt plug-in hybrid entered its second generation in 2016 and is now set to receive a bit of a refresh for the 2019 model year. Headlining the list of updates is a new and improved charging system, which is said to offer twice the range-per-hour as the outgoing system.

PostHeaderIcon 2016 Chevrolet Volt EPA Ratings Announced

2016 Chevrolet Volt EPA-1

The EPA economy ratings for green cars are the equivalent of power and torque figures for ordinary cars. They are almost always the first thing potential customers consider. The Agency has now announced the official rating for the new 2016 Chevrolet Volt, and they ought to make GM very happy.

The numbers are not that brilliant, but on average 2016 Chevrolet Volt is about 40 percent more efficient than its predecessor. That is the result of listening to customers, says Andrew Farah, vehicle chief engineer, who wanted more range and more electric miles.

So the new Volt delivers a satisfying 53 miles of pure electric drive, thanks to its new 18.4-kWh lithium-ion battery, and is rated at a combined 106 MPGe. The gas-powered generator (the 1.5 liter gasoline range-extender engine) is rated at 42 mpg and has a range of 420 miles, which means using the combination of gas and electricity you can travel well over 1,000 miles between gas fill ups. These are all good numbers and combined with the fancy new looks and advanced features, they put the 2016 Chevrolet Volt at the top of the list for any electric car buyer who can’t afford a Tesla.

The 2016 Chevrolet Volt can run on pure electricity for 53 miles on a single charge, nearly 40 percent more than the first-generation Volt.

“We listened to our customers,” said Andrew Farah, vehicle chief engineer, “They were very clear when they told us that they wanted more range, and a fun driving experience behind the wheel. We are confident that the 2016 Volt delivers both.”

PostHeaderIcon Last First-Gen Chevy Volt Rolls Off the Assembly Line

In preparation for the all-new 2016 Chevrolet Volt, the last of the first-generation Volts was produced this week at GM’s Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant. As much publicity as surrounded the Volt when it first went into production in 2010 (shown above), the final car – a white 2015 Chevy Volt – rolled off the line with little fanfare.

Over its five years of production, Chevrolet sold 76,136 Volts (through April), and that doesn’t include export versions of the car like the Opel Ampera for Europe and the Holden Volt for Australia. The Volt’s sales peaked in 2012 with Chevy selling 23,461 Volts, but last year just 18,805 units were sold.

The first-gen Chevy Volt was a true innovator with its range-extended electric drivetrain that allowed 38 miles of all-electric driving with the added benefit of a gasoline engine that provided an extra 350 miles of range. Similar powertrain technologies have since been used by other automakers, including the BMW i cars.

Chevrolet has not said when production of the more advanced second-gen Volt will commence, but the car will be in dealerships sometime during the second half of this year. Even though production of the Chevrolet Volt is off-line, the Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly still builds the Cadillac ELR, Chevrolet Malibu and Chevrolet Impala.

PostHeaderIcon Chevrolet Volt Is "Tomorrowland Today" In Latest Ad

Chevrolet has teamed up with Disney to ensure that moviegoers will see plenty of bowties in the upcoming summer blockbuster Tomorrowland, and the all-new 2016 Chevrolet Volt will be prominently featured. Ahead of the movie’s opening, Chevrolet has released the first advertisement, called “Tomorrow, Today.”

In the spot, Chevrolet highlights the evolution of some of General Motors’ most iconic, cutting-edge and futuristic concept vehicles: the 1959 Firebird III, 1964 Firebird IV, 1968 Astro II, 1969 Astro III and the 1987 Chevrolet Express Concept. Capping off these concepts, of course, is the new Volt, which Chevrolet labels as the “car of tomorrow today.”

Joining the Volt on the big screen (as well as in a display at Disneyland’s The Downtown Disney District), Chevy will also feature the equally futuristic Chevy EN-V concept.

Tomorrowland – starring George Clooney and Hugh Laurie – opens in theaters May 22, but you can see the latest trailer by clicking here.

Chevrolet Volt

Launched for the 2011 model year, the Chevrolet Volt is GM’s first volume plug-in hybrid vehicle. Also sold as the Holden Volt, Vauxhall Ampera and Opel Ampera around the world, the five-door compact has already won numerous awards, including the 2011 North American Car of the Year. The most advanced version of the Volt used a 17-kWh battery that enabled it to return a range of 38 miles in all-electric mode. For 2016, the current Volt is being replaced by a redesigned, second-generation vehicle that delivers enhanced fuel economy from its revised gasoline generator, better performance and a greater electric-only range.

The new Volt has been revamped inside and out, with emphasis on a sportier exterior design and a brand-new drivetrain that’s significantly lighter than its predecessor. The five-door compact is also slightly bigger in its second generation, allowing Chevy to not only increase legroom front and rear, but enable the Volt — previously a four-seater — to offer seating for five. Read on for the full run-down.

Updated 09/09/2015: Automotive News reports that the 2016 Volt will be offered in a limited run. Only a few units will be built for markets like California, Oregon and parts of the Northeast. Everyone else will have to wait for the 2017 model year set to arrive in the spring of 2016 with a series of updates.

PostHeaderIcon Chevrolet And Disney Plan To Launch "Tomorrowland" Film

In the upcoming sci-fi mystery adventure film Tomorrowland, a cynical old scientist and bright teenager must team up to unravel an enigma that catapults the duo through time and space. The movie harkens back to a period when hope for the future was laden with thoughts of jet packs, automatic convenience and an abundance for all. As part of that optimism, Chevrolet has announced a partnership with Disney to help promote the new Volt, framed as the automaker’s bid for a brighter tomorrow.

“Tomorrowland is a place where nothing is impossible, which is something that Chevrolet believes can exist in the here and now,” said Tim Mahoney, Vice President, Global Chevrolet, in a press release. “The Chevrolet spirit reflects the hopes and possibilities of tomorrow in real instruments of change for today like the next-generation Chevrolet Volt.”

The promo will see a TV spot and digital adverts beginning in early May.

As a reminder, Chevy’s idea of a brighter future for today involves 50 miles of emission-free driving and 1,000 miles between gas fill-ups. The Volt has seen extensive revisions for 2016, including an updated exterior, a reorganized interior space, and a lighter, more efficient drivetrain.

Tomorrowland is scheduled for theatrical release May 22nd, starring George Clooney and Britt Robertson.
