2016 Chevrolet Volt: Will the Luggage Fit?

by Mike Schmidt, Vehicle Testing Manager on July 7, 2016

2016 Chevrolet Volt

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).

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.

2016 Chevrolet Volt

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.
