2019 Chevy Volt Cuts Charging Time in Half

By Justin Cupler | June 29th, 2018

Since its debut in 2016, the second-generation Chevy Volt hasn’t received many notable updates. The 2019 Chevy Volt will put an end to that with an updated charging system that will cut the charging time by nearly half and tons of other updates.

The most important update to the 2019 Chevy Volt is the new 7.2-kilowatt charging system standard on Premier trims and optional on the LT. This system will drop the 240-volt Level 2 Volt’s charging time from 4.5 hours to just 2.3 hours. The LT trim’s standard charging system will remain a 3.6-kilowatt system. The 2019 Volt will continue to deliver 53 miles of all-electric range, a 106 mpg-e rating in EV mode, and a combined 420-mile range with a full gas tank and battery.

Other important technological updates on the 2019 Volt include an engine-assisted heater in especially cold climates, enhanced regenerative braking, a new Chevrolet Infotainment 3 system with an 8-inch touchscreen, a power driver’s seat, an updated pedestrian-alert system with front and rear speakers, a digital rearview camera, switchable adaptive cruise control, tire-fill alert, and the wireless charging pad moved to ahead of the shifter for easier access.

There are also updated aesthetics for the 2019 Volt. These include a new Pacific Blue Metallic exterior hue, a jet-black/Porcelain Blue interior color scheme, an optional blackout package, and new patterns on the cloth seats.

The 2019 Chevy Volt will hit the Sunrise Chevrolet showroom in the fall 2018. Pricing will be available closer to that time. If you need your green sedan now, you can check out our in-stock 2018 Chevy Volts online.
