2019 Chevrolet Volt slashes recharging time by halfThose who plug in often will like 2019 Chevrolet Volt upgrades

Owners of the Chevrolet Volt take plugging in seriously. According to Chevrolet, they drive on battery power 60 percent of the time, taking advantage of the Volt’s 53-mile electric range—the most of any plug-in hybrid in the U.S. market. Among the changes to the Volt for the 2019 model year are several important upgrades that are aimed directly at a target audience that plugs in as much as possible and even gamifies keeping gasoline use to a minimum.

Most noteworthy is that the 2019 Chevrolet Volt charges in about half the time of the 2018 model when it’s hooked up to a Level 2 (240-volt) AC charger such as what you’d install in a garage or encounter in a shopping center. By giving the Volt a 7.2-kW onboard charger—the same as in the fully electric Bolt EV—Chevy brings the time for a full charge of the Volt down to just under two hours and 20 minutes.
