2019 Chevy Volt gets faster charging, stronger regen, more luxury features

Adding more miles during opportunity charging sessions will give Volt drivers more incentive to take on quick charging hits as they go about their daily errands, and will make it less likely that they'll rely on gasoline to complete their trips.

General Motors has cut the time needed to recharge the 2019 Chevrolet Volt plug-in hybrid almost in half by doubling the kilowatt capacity of the car's charging system. The system slices charging times by almost half, down to 2.3 hours when plugged into a 240V Level 2 station.

In addition to the new charging system, the 2019 Volt offers a number of enhancements created to improve convenience and help owners get more out of their all-electric driving experience.

His family would not discuss the amount of money that was taken but said it was a "considerable amount". Volma told the paper the caregivers are a big part of the reason Overton is still alive.

The Volt's interior is getting a bunch of upgrades, too, like an available Power Convenience Package which gives the LT a power driver's seat and a wireless charging system for devices, making it more comfortable as well as easy to live with, which is always a Volt strong suit.

The highlight of this approach is a new 7.2 kilowatt charging system, which is standard on the Volt Premier and optional on Volt LT.

The 2019 Volt will run for 53 miles in pure-EV mode, then the gasoline-powered range extender kicks in, giving the vehicle an all-in range of 420 miles. This charger allows the Volt to recharge its batteries to the full 53-mile range in just 2.3 hours from a 240-volt Level 2 outlet, rather than the 4.5 hours using the old 3.6 kW system. He continued to say that it effectively extends the vehicle's all-electric driving range while saving customers money when plugging in at public facilities that charge by the hour.

One more and he will equal 1950 World Cup-winner Oscar Miguez's Uruguayan record of eight goals at the tournament. Edinson Cavani gave Uruguay the lead after just six minutes of play, heading home a Luis Suarez cross.

New "Low and Regen on Demand" settings that enable increased regenerative capability when drivers let off the accelerator pedal. The feature helps the vehicle achieve its class-leading EV range, and the updates come with an improved driving feel with smoother operation when slowing.

A new Energy App also betters economy by educating drivers on how their behaviour behind the wheel affects the battery range.

FAST FACT: Volt owners have driven more than 2.8 billion EV miles, saving more than 108 million gallons of gas.
