Armed with a 1.5L inline-4 engine and a battery pack and an 18.4-kWh lithium-ion battery, fused to a 1-speed direct drive, the 2018 Chevrolet Volt Hybrid makes 149 horsepower and 294 lb-ft of torque. Standalone, the engine makes 101 horsepower while the electric motors manage 48 horsepower. This powertrain helps the 2018 Chevrolet Volt cover 0-60 in 8.4 seconds. You can drive the Volt for 53 miles on the electric system alone, making it good for a small trip in the city. Combined, the Volt achieves an impressive 106 MPGe, while getting 42 mpg with the traditional engine alone. With a base price of MSRP $33,220, the Volt makes a formidable competitor in the compact hatchback segment, competing with the likes of only Toyota Prius Prime Hybrid. We also consider the Ford C-Max Hybrid from the wagon segment as its indirect competitor.
