Chevrolet Volt Receives UV Paint
"The idea was to create an image that was as innovative and mold-breaking as the Chevrolet Volt itself, while at the same time keeping in mind its electric powertrain." Cook said in a statement about his art.1
UV paint will not be standard on the 2013 Volt, but the EV will include "EV Hold Mode." This option switches over to the extended-range mode, where a gas-powered generator is used. This is better for situations that involve more highway driving since high speeds drain the plug-in battery quickly.
Volt EV is powered by a 150 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque engine, along with 220-cell, 16 kWh lithium ion battery pack. EPA rates Volt at 94 MPGe (miles per gallon equivalent) in electric mode.
GM sold 2,289 Volts in March, a monthly record that is more than three times higher than figures from last year. Felix Chevrolet of Downtown Los Angeles was proud to be a part of these results!
