Benefits of Driving a 2013 Chevrolet Volt Hatchback

The Chevy Volt is the first mass-produced, purpose-built, plug-in hybrid from a major manufacturer. The Volt is an electric car, so its batteries can be charged when it is plugged into an outlet, but the Volt also carries a small gasoline-powered engine on board to charge the batteries, should a longer range be required.

What's new for 2013?

The Volt sees a few changes for 2013. Most notably, it features larger batteries, which Chevy claims will up the all-electric range from 35 to 38 miles. The effective miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe) has increased as well, up from 94 to 98. Also a new optional rear seat armrest, as well as two new exterior colors are available--Pebble Beige and Silver Topaz Metallic. A new 'EV Hold Mode' allows the Volt to store energy from the gasoline engine for later battery use at the driver's discretion, when battery usage is best optimized, such as city driving.

Model Strengths

  • The latest in plug-in hybrid technology provides extreme fuel economy with few compromises in performance or features.

Model Review

The Chevy Volt is GM's first plug-in hybrid vehicle. It carries a bank of lithium-ion batteries underneath as its primary fuel source. The batteries can be charged by plugging them in overnight, and can provide a range of 38 miles. Should the driver require a longer range, an on-board 1.4L 4-cylinder gasoline-powered engine automatically starts up to generate additional energy. A regenerative braking system provides additional charging whenever the vehicle slows. Overall, the Volt's miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe) is rated at 98.

Safety Ratings help

What do the Safety Ratings mean?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) performs independent crash testing of new vehicles and then assigns them a score based on their performance. The overall crash test rating is based on how a vehicle performs in the following tests:

Driver Crash Grade:

Measures the chance of a serious injury to a crash test dummy that is placed in a driver's seat and driven into a fixed barrier at 35 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less chance of injury.

Passenger Crash Grade:

Similar to the driver crash grade, only now the focus is on the passenger.

Rollover Resistance:

Simulates an emergency lane change to measure the likelihood of a vehicle rolling over. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less risk of rollover.

Side Impact Crash Test - Front:

Focuses on the front side of a vehicle. It simulates crashes that can occur in intersections by striking a 3,015-pound weight against the side of a vehicle at 38.5 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 5 percent or less chance of injury.

Side Impact Crash Test - Rear:

Similar to the front side impact test only now the focus is on the rear passenger.
