Will the luggage fit? To answer this question we loaded (our 2016 Chevrolet Volt) with bags in different configurations and took photos. What constitutes carry-on luggage varies depending upon who you ask. So for the sake of standardization we used the same blue carry-on bag--size (21 x15x10 inches) and red checked bag--size (30x20x13 inches).
Take the jump for photos and more detail...

It's frustrating when something little like this happens.
I was staring at the cargo area in our long-term 2016 Chevrolet Volt with my hands on my hips. I was attempting to install the small sheet of fabric that Chevrolet deems fit to call a cargo cover when one off the hook points comes loose.

Yes, the 2016 Chevrolet Volt is a hatchback. Yes, consequently it has a more versatile cargo area than a compact sedan. Unfortunately, unlike other hatchbacks, the Volt has a significant liftover height. One must hoist whatever up and over the bumper and then lower it onto the cargo floor.

With the key to our new 2016 Chevrolet Volt in my pocket, I headed out to the garage to take a good look at the Chevy's cargo capacity.
Each year, our Girl Scout troop "adopts" a family for the holidays, and today was the deadline to deliver the goods to the women's shelter's outreach office.
"Not terrible," I thought, as I popped the hatch, opened the rear doors, and started to fold forward the Volt's 60/40-split rear seats.

If you don't think General Motors has cutting-edge technology, you haven't been paying attention.
Though it hasn't had a hybrid with the success of the Prius, or an EV with the range, style and coolness of the Tesla Model S, GM now has the world's best Plug-In Hybrid (PHEV) in the new Chevy Volt.
