Chevy Volt New Photos

share on:

General Motors, in honor of Earth Day yesterday, posted some updated photos of the Chevy Volt—the electric car that gets 40 miles on a single charge—that will launch at the end of this year. See some photos below.
In case you haven’t been following the Volt over the last two years, one interesting electronics feature is it will offer remote control via a smartphone over features like remote start, unlocking doors or seeing how much juice is left in the battery. The remote technology used is from OnStar. The phones that double as remote transmitters include the BlackBerry, iPhone, and Motorola Droid.
There’s no news here except the new photos, but in honor of Earth Day yesterday, we thought we’d go over the Volt’s features:
It plugs into a standard 120v household outlet and charges in about 8 hours. That will get you to about 40 miles and then it switches to gas. Electricity is cheaper to use than gas and there’s no tailpipe emissions. The Volt is a hatchback that seats 4 adults. It goes from 0 to 60 in nine seconds. Pricing is expected to be announced in May. Buyers can get up to a $7,500 federal tax credit for the vehicle.
