The 2019 Chevrolet Volt arrives this fall with a host of updates. They include less battery recharging time, the plug-in hybrid’s first-ever power driver’s seat, and updated tech.
New 7.2 kW Charging System
The biggest deal is a new 7.2 kW charging system that’s available on the 2019 Volt Premier and LT models. Chevy says it will cut recharging times nearly in half by adding about twice the all-electric driving range per hour of charge. A complete recharge can be achieved in as little as 2.3 hours with a 240-volt outlet and supporting hardware. A 3.6 kW charger is standard on the Volt LT.
The Volt will go for 53 miles in pure EV-mode. Kick in the gas engine and you get 420 miles on a full tank.
Other 2019 Updates
There are some welcome other updates, too. They include adaptive cruise control, an updated pedestrian detection system, and a new digital rearview camera. Also, a tire fill alert now sounds the horn when you reach the right tire pressure and a new energy app is synced to Chevy’s Infotainment 3 system.
