Safety and Technology
The 2011 Chevrolet Volt safety features include: 4 wheel ABS, traction control, stability control, dual front side airbags, front and rear airbags, passenger airbag occupant sensing deactivation, rear door child safety locks, child seat anchors, rear height adjustable headrests, front fog/driving lights, auto delay off headlamps, engine immobilizer, daytime running lights, and remote anti-theft alarm system.
The Chevrolet Volt is an electric vehicle with a range extender. This means Volt runs on electricity from its battery, and then it runs on electricity it creates from gas. Now, depending on the weather, the electrical features that are turned on and how you drive, you can drive up to 40 miles on the electricity stored in the battery totally gas and emissions free. After that, its gas-powered, range-extending generator automatically kicks in to provide electrical power. So the Chevrolet Volt can go for several hundred additional miles, until you can plug it in or fill it up again.
The Volt will be powered by a Lithium-ion battery pack. While there are many different kinds of lithium batteries like the ones used in computers and cell phones, the Volt cells are specifically made for vehicles. The Li-ion battery holds its charge efficiently and has no memory effect, which means you don’t have to run it down completely before recharging
