We know the 2016 Chevrolet Volt will debut in January at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, but other details are slim. Today, Chevrolet released a bit more news concerning the updated version of its gas-electric plug-in car. It'll use a new extended range electric vehicle propulsion system and be "more efficient and offer greater EV range and fuel economy compared to the current generation," the automaker said in a statement.
The automaker didn't release figures but the current Volt gets an EPA rating of 38 miles of EV-only range on a full charge. Chevrolet said Volt owners complete more than 80 percent of their trips in EV mode and the move to increase the new model's EV-only range came from owner feedback.
