Chevrolet Volt UK Specs Confirmed


As the orders book open for the Chevrolet Volt, UK pricing and specs of the car are announced officially.

Only one trim level will be available, priced at £29,995 after the UK government’s Low Carbon Vehicle grant (£34,995 pre-grant). The car comes with fully loaded with features, but there are also some options to specify. They include a high tech audio system featuring sat nav, DVD-ROM and MP3 playback facility, seven energy-efficient BOSE speakers with sub-woofer, voice recognition and a hard drive with 30Gb of music storage priced at £1,745, 17-inch polished alloy wheels at £490 and a range of special and metallic paint options, from £495.

Initially, the car will be available through two dedicated Volt centres – Cambridge Chevrolet in Cambridgeshire, and Phoenix Chevrolet in Wimbledon, SW London.

Features and equipments:

The final UK specification of the Volt include such premium features as heated leather seats, Bluetooth with voice recognition and embedded phone, electronic keyless ignition with touch button start, 17-inch alloy wheels, ambient LED-based interior lighting, solar absorbing glass, DAB Digital Radio and an energy-efficient six-speaker stereo system that uses minimal electricity to operate.

Other specification highlights include fully programmable door locking, cruise control, air con, a 7-inch LCD screen with Driver Information Centre, touch-sensitive controls on the centre console, a pedestrian alert system, rear camera and front and rear park assist and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.

Thanks to its mould-breaking E-REV technology (Extended Range Electric Vehicle) the Volt will never leave its driver stranded, unlike some other electric cars that will only travel a finite distance between charges. This is thanks to an onboard petrol generator, which sustains battery power when the range is depleted so that the car can still be driven, with the wheels powered by its electric motor until it can be recharged.
