2016 Chevy Volt Premier: Top-Level Luxury Meets Electric Efficiency
Everybody’s excited about the new Chevy Volt. Between its outstanding 53 mile electric-only range and its stylish, compact design, the 2016 Chevy Volt offers one of the best looking, best performing, and best valued electric vehicles we’ve seen in a long time. And with so many eager consumers flocking to what the Volt has to offer, there’s never been a better time to get in on the action – and, just maybe, set yourself apart from the crowd.
The best way to have your Volt stand out, of course, is to go Premium – the Premium trim level, that is. The higher of two trims available for the 2016 Volt, the Premier offers everything the modern driver might need to get around in an efficient and enviable style. That means that your Volt will contain every great feature found on the standard model, plus a variety of enhancements that can’t be found on your average electric vehicle.
Those who choose the Premier trim will, obviously, be building on everything else that’s so impressive about the standard Volt itself. With a powerful 18.4 kWh lithium-ion battery mated to a gas-powered generator, the Volt can reach up to 420 miles in one fill-up and a full charge, or a Chevy-estimated 1000 miles between fill-ups with regular driving. The Volt Premier also features Chevy’s regenerative braking and Regen on Demand battery-recovery technology to further boost efficiency on the road.
But what makes the Premier so special are its “premium” features – notably, its exterior design improvements, which include heated, power-adjustable, body-color exterior side mirrors and a distinctively stylish front grille. Plus, the 17-inch, 5-spoke chrome aluminum wheels on the Premier feature ultra-bright machined finish with painted pockets and the option to upgrade to gloss black pockets for your own personal flair.
Take a seat inside the Premier trim and you’ll feel the comfort of leather-appointed seats – heated, for those sitting up front – and the warmth of a heated, leather-wrapped steering wheel to turn your regular commute into more of a delight than a bore. Blast your favorite jams through the standard Bose 8-speaker premium sound system, including your standard Sirius XM satellite radio or your connected USB device for your own brand of fun on the road.
And for those planning on bringing along a few backseat passengers, safety is as important as ever in the Volt. Those looking for standard safety features like advanced seatbelts and surround airbags will undoubtedly find the standard Volt outfitted just fine, but those searching for advanced preventative safety tech like Forward Automatic Braking and Forward Collision Alert, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, and Lane Keep Assist will have to turn to the Premier, which offers each or all of these options for the cautious driver.
As the popularity of electric vehicles like the new Volt has shot up in recent years, the streets have been lush with efficient, effective, and clean cars like never before. But if you, like many drivers, can’t stand the thought of giving up on impressive style in order to gain the benefits of electric power, there’s simply no better option than the 2016 Chevy Volt Premier. Check one out and see for yourself, and you might just find yourself in the vehicle designed for your future.
