An electric blue 2016 Chevrolet Volt played peek-a-boo during the 2014 Los Angeles auto show, showing off half of its front fascia. The second-generation 2016 Volt will makes its official debut at the upcoming Detroit auto show in just a few months, and the car is expected to be substantially different from the current model.
Based on the picture, the new Volt will sport a more dramatic fascia, with a small grille above the front bumper, and a larger metallic-like grille in the lower portion of the valance. The headlights are taller and sharper, while the foglamps appear to be all-LED units that run vertically on the outer edge of the lower bumper. Prior to today's photo, Chevrolet teased the 2016 Volt's rear trunk deck.
As previously reported, the 2016 Volt will feature an all-new powertrain. A 1.5-liter I-4 replaces the current 1.4-liter mill, and it should be more efficient and refined. The battery pack will be lighter and more efficient, while the all-electric range is expected to jump from the current EPA-rated 38 miles to around 50 miles.
The 2016 Volt arrives in showrooms sometime next year, and rumors suggest a budget version will be available. The current base price is around $35,000, while the 2014 Toyota Prius Plug-in starts at $30,800.
