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.

Chevrolet has taken the wraps off a new concept truck at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show, showcasing its Colorado ZR2 concept as an example of what could be for the midsize model's off-roading future.

Chevrolet’s counting on this to win it the EV war

Chevrolet isn't quite ready to show us the new, 2016 Volt - that won't happen until early in the new year - but it can't contain itself from revealing what's arguably most important about the next-gen car, its all-new powertrain.

According to Chevrolet, the new Voltec setup has been designed "substantially" around how existing Volt owners actually drive their cars.

2017 C8 Corvette could be a mid-engine beast

The Chevrolet Corvette has been around for decades now and one thing that each iteration of the car has had in common is a front mounted engine. In the automotive world, you can have front, mid, and rear engines and there are fantastic sports cars in each of those categories. Think Porsche 911 for rear-engine, Corvette (and a plethora of others) for front engine, and mostly exotics like Ferrari and a few others for mid-engine.

Chevy turns 2015 Corvette into an anti-valet CCTV strongbox
