2017 Chevy Volt differences compared to 2016 model

By Peter Chubb - Feb 3, 2016

The 2017 Chevy Volt differences compared to the outgoing 2016 model are not huge, although still enough to sway any of you to go with that newer model. First of all the new model is now available in all US states. It will also come with some added features, such as Forward Automatic Braking, along with Adaptive Cruise Control.

Other changes had to be made, although you as the owner will not see these, such as the need to adhere to EPA’s Tier 3 Vehicle Emission and Fuel Standards Program, and so is even more fuel efficient than before.

Not much else has really changed, but we can tell you that the 2017 Chevrolet Volt starting price will be $34,095 for the LT variant. However, if you wish to have a trim with more goodies, then this is going to cost you $38,445. However for the extra $4,000 or so you do get leather-appointed seats, a Bose Premium Audio System, heated power-adjustable exterior mirrors and also 17-inch ultra-bright machined finish wheels.

As for the new Chevy Volt range, this is rated at 53 miles on electric power alone although the real-world figures are more likely to be 48 miles, and this is driving as efficiently as you possibly can.

    The new Volt will go more than 48 miles in the real world. I have gotten 48 miles on my 2014 Volt in several round trips around town and I was not driving as efficiently as one can. The new Volt will likely get 53 miles in good weather, 60 or more miles when no AC or heat are needed and you are driving around town, and 38-40 miles in the heart of winter.

      I saw one parked in my hometown of Claremont, Ca. and waited for the owner to appear, and when he did, he said he got between 50 and 60 miles per charge and that in 1600 miles of driving, all but 60 of them had been pure electric.
