The 2016 Chevrolet Volt is expected to get a boost to its peak charge power.
According to a recent report, the 2016 Volt will see its peak plug-in charge power jump from 3.3 kW to 3.6 kW marking a nine percent increase. The change won’t yield a noticeable difference for owners charging with a “Level 1” trickle charger because they wouldn’t even reach into the current car’s 3.3 kW capacity, but it will make a significant difference for anyone using a “Level 2” charger that operates at between 208 and 240 volts.
The 2016 Chevrolet Volt will make its official debut at next year’s Detroit Auto Show, so expect to hear plenty of details in the coming months as the American automaker will surely want to get the buzz going for its next-generation PHEV.
