The all-new Holden Volt, Holden’s long-range electric vehicle, is hitting the road for the typical Kiwi road trip.
The Holden Volt will be travelling the length of the country showcasing its extended range capability, achieved with help from its on-board petrol generator.
The first 87 kilometers, depending on driving style and condition, can be driven on a charge from a regular household wall outlet which costs around $2.72 a day for a full charge. When that charge is depleted, the generator switches seamlessly to maintain a charge in the battery that gives the car more than 600 kilometers of total range.
The Holden Volt is a leader in its class and provides high tech options not available on other electric vehicles.. The Volt’s unique Electric Propulsion System gives instant torque from a standstill,, for a powerful and exhilarating drive that was described by Australia’s Top Gear as “freaking awesome”.
