The 2016 Volt is listed at $33,170 MSRP, before any government incentives. It’s rated for 53 miles (85km) of electric range, and according to GM, can go 420 miles (600km) with a full charge & tank of gas, and 1000 miles (1609km) between fill-ups with regular charging.

It boasts a 106 MPGe EPA city/highway combined rating, and takes about 4.5 hours to charge with a regular Level 2 charger. GM also provides a 100,000 mile hybrid electrical components warranty.

Some of the primary enhancements from the first-gen Volt include a sportier, sleeker design, a quieter, more efficient engine, the ability to fill-up with regular gasoline (the first gen required premium gas), and comes with a “regen on demand” paddle.

Safety was major focus for the new Volt – featuring lane keep assist, rear cross traffic alert, forward safety awareness, and a 10-airbag system.

Many have wondered what impact the launch would have on current Volt owners and the resale value of their used vehicles. We take a look at that here.
