Safety. The car is also manufactured with so much promise. Priority was given to make sure passengers are safe and comfortable.

Some of its safety features include forward collision alerts, rear cross traffic alerts, side blind zone alerts and lane departure warnings. It has even rear cameras mirror for an all-around driving visibility. In addition, 10 airbags were installed all around the interior to prevent traumatic injury in case of a crash.

Power. When the average motorist thinks of horsepower, the first thing that enters their mind is a gasoline or a diesel fed engine motor. The 2017 Chevrolet Volt EV will give ordinary engines a run for their money. Its motor will deliver 200 HP of force to run the car. That power will be delivered to its two front wheels for ease of handling. Acceleration to 60 mph is about 6.5 seconds only. It is going to give 238 miles of driving on a single full charge. Also, it has a braking system that will even extend that range way over your expectation.
