2016 Chevrolet Volt: Tech Now Seems Mainstream

by Kelly Hellwig, Managing Editor on December 17, 2015

2016 Chevrolet Volt

Back in 2011, when we took delivery of our first long-term Chevrolet Volt test car, the Chevy seemed so glamorous and high-tech. Until then we were mostly driving around in hybrids that looked like hybrids (read Toyota Prius), and the Volt seemed like a far more exciting option.

Fast forward a mere five years, and our new 2016 Chevrolet Volt test car doesn't feel so foreign anymore. We're all used to pushbutton start, plugging-in and watching for the "switchover" indication that you've just moved from electric power to gasoline.

Sure, the Volt's driving range has grown, but so have our expectations. With more alternative-fuel vehicles on the market, including the BMW i3 we're currently testing, the 2016 Volt faces more competition, and perhaps a tougher audience, this time around.
