Charging your Chevy Volt electric car just got a whole lot easier. For the 2019 model year, Chevrolet has introduced a new charging system to cut recharging times in nearly half, making it easier to get out on the road in your eco-friendly ride.
The new system, which is 7.2 kW, doesn’t just double the all-electric driving range of your Volt per hour of charge, but it also increases its all-electric utility for owners who take advantage of plugging their Volt in around town to top off the batter.
“With about twice the range added during 240V Level 2 charging sessions, the 2019 Volt’s 7.2 kW system makes opportunity charging more worthwhile,” said Jesse Ortega, chief engineer, Chevrolet Electric Vehicles. “It effectively extends the vehicle’s all-electric driving range, while providing about twice the range for the money when plugging in at public facilities that charge by the hour.”
2019 Chevrolet Volt charging can be completed in as little as 2.3 hours with a 240-volt outlet and supporting hardware. That means you can easily take advantage of your Volt’s full-charge capabilities of 53 miles of EV range and 106 MPGe.
This new charging system is available on the Volt LT trim level and comes standard on the 2019 Volt Premier model. Celebrate this new offering from Chevy by stopping by Buff Whelan Chevrolet to browse our current inventory of Volt models.
