Holden - Volt


Holden Volt - Extended Range Electric Vehicle.

A vehicle that is so radically different to the everyday petrol powered mid-size town car has no right to be so easy to live with, or so good looking to boot. But that’s the case with the Holden Volt electric car.

There is little difference, apart from super fuel efficiency and, for the most part, absence of engine noise, to a conventional car.
On sale for $59,990, Volt is covered by a three-year/100,000 kilometre warranty on the vehicle, while an eight-year/160,000 kilometre transferable warranty covers battery and Voltec components, including all 161 battery components, charging and thermal-management systems and electric drive system components.
Capped price servicing of $185 is offered on Volt’s first four standard scheduled log book services for the first three years or 60,000km, whichever comes first. The infotainment system has two 7-inch colour LCD screens for satellite navigation, Bluetooth, USB with iPod connectivity, a 30GB disk drive and DVD player, many of which can be operated through voice recognition.
There is an extra level of interaction via a moving ball efficiency gauge that if kept in the centre of the scale shows the vehicle is being driven to optimal efficiency. But don’t become to distracted by this – or optimal safety suffers...
The touch screen above the centre console displays instant information on energy use and power flow. It also gives feedback based on driving style, climate settings and energy usage.
The latest in lithium-ion batteries allows an electric motor alone to drive the car up to 87 kilometres and a petrol generator that can produce electricity to keep the vehicle moving for up to 600 kilometres on a single charge and a full tank (35.2 litres) of premsource
