Grunt versus Green: Detroit shows an auto industry torn

Grunt versus Green: Detroit shows an auto industry torn

Not everything on four wheels is created equal, and while the Detroit Auto Show had its fair share of eco-mindful cars this week, the industry still couldn’t resist some heavy duty muscle. Cars like the new Chevrolet Volt and its baby - and currently only conceptual - brother, the Bolt, showed GM isn’t giving up on plug-in hybrid and range-extended cars. Its efforts were arguably overshadowed with the reveals of Ford’s GT and Acura’s NSX, however, along with a brace of new, luxury vehicles that gave only minor nods to the environment, if at all.

Chevrolet Bolt EV Concept: 200 miles for $30k

Chevrolet's new 2016 Volt wasn't the only EV the company had to show at the opening of the Detroit Auto Show today, with a new Bolt EV Concept previewing a more affordable version of the car. Dubbed the EV for not just California, but the remaining 49 states in the US - as well as "select locations" further afield - the Chevrolet Bolt EV Concept previews a roughly $30,000 car with the same battery pack and range-extending drivetrain technology as featured in the 2016 Volt.

2016 Chevrolet Volt arrives with extended range and seats

2016 Chevrolet Volt arrives with extended range and seats

As hinted way back in November, Chevrolet has come out with a new version of its Volt hybrid electric vehicle in time for the 2015 Detroit Auto Show this week. If there's a common theme to this new EV, it would be "more". The car boasts of an increased EV range of 50 miles, 420 miles if you count on the "extended range" mode. It now also boasts of five seats, up from the previous four. The only thing that seemingly didn't increase is the weight of certain parts.

Chevrolet Bolt EV tipped to take on Tesla Model 3

Chevrolet is set to reveal a second hybrid EV, the Chevrolet Bolt, in concept form at the Detroit Auto Show on Monday, insiders claims, as a pre-emptive strike against the upcoming cheaper Tesla. The Bolt - its name a nod to the existing Volt, which itself will be updated for the 2016 model year at Detroit - will reportedly cost around $30,000 and be able to run around 200 miles on a charge. Like the Volt, it will not only support being plugged-in to replenish the batteries, but have a range-extending gasoline engine onboard.

Chevrolet CrossVolt resparks hybrid crossover chatter

Chevrolet may be busy preparing the new 2016 Volt for its debut in Detroit in just a few weeks time, but the rumor mill is heaving with the renewed possibility of a companion hybrid crossover, the CrossVolt. GM's lawyers have been busy renewing the CrossVolt trademark at the USPTO, sparking again the chatter of a meatier model to use the Voltec powertrain freshly developed for its revamped hybrid. With almost five years under its belt since it revealed the Chevrolet Volt MPV5 concept shown here, however, GM's strategy for expanding on hybrids and EVs still isn't clear.

Chevrolet takes its 2016 Volt out to play in the snow

Chevrolet takes its 2016 Volt out to play in the snow

Chevrolet isn't quite ready to show us the 2016 Volt hybrid yet - that'll have to wait until the Detroit Auto Show next month - but that doesn't mean it won't tease us with the prototype undergoing cold weather testing. Expected to drive faster, for longer, and more efficiently than the current electric/gas car, the new Volt has been tearing up the snow and ice as its powertrain and chassis get put through their paces to make sure frosty conditions don't put the dampeners on how useful the eco-friendly model might be.

Next Chevrolet Volt to offer better charging experience

Next Chevrolet Volt to offer better charging experience

For a hybrid electric vehicle like the Chevrolet Volt, or as GM would call it, "Extended Range Electric Vehicle", life revolves around charging the battery. Next to driving the car, of course. According to the car maker, owners just love charging their Volts, so much so that they barely make use of the range extender, a.k.a., the fallback internal combustion engine. That is why for the next generation Chevy Volt, they will be putting due emphasis on charging and will make that experience easier and more convenient than ever.
