Where would we be without electricity? Our whole existence would be quite different. Electric power is a massive part of our lives, and when looking to the future of the automotive industry, electric power cannot be ignored. Chevrolet has a particularly slick car that uses electricity for some of its operation, the Volt, and it is receiving some upgrades for the new model year, including the time it takes to charge the battery. What is the charging time of the 2019 Chevy Volt? A 7.2 kW system is standard on the Volt Premier and available on the Volt LT, and with that system the car can be charged in as little as 2.3 hours when using a 240-volt outlet and the hardware that supports it. A 3.6 kW charging system is standard on the Volt LT model. What else is new with this car? Keep reading for what we know so far.

Updates on the 2019 Chevrolet Volt

Charging time is not the only upgrade in store for drivers of the new Chevy Volt. Driving a car that uses gasoline and electric power in cold weather can be difficult when you want to save gasoline usage. The 2019 Chevy Volt will allow deferment of the automatic engine-assisted heating system until lower temperatures (negative 13 degrees F [negative 25 degrees C]). Drivers will also be happy to see a new Chevrolet Infotainment 3 system complete with an eight-inch touchscreen that also now features an Energy App. That app displays the different things that can affect how far you can go on a single charge, including your driving habits, weather, and more.
