Chevy's Volt features a 7-inch touchscreen from which you can monitor the charge of its 16 kWh battery and energy usage, as well as your overall driving efficiency. Chevy offers Volt drivers two different apps. OnStar RemoteLink allows you to schedule charges, view your battery level, receive alerts when the battery is full and pre-cool or heat the cabin. The MyLink app allows you to connect your smartphone to the Volt's infotainment system and offers integration with Pandora, Stitcher and Gracenote.
The Volt differs from most electric cars because in addition to its electric motor and battery, it includes a gas-powered engine. The Volt can run on battery power alone for up to 35 miles, at which point the engine kicks in and provides power for the car's electric motor, giving it enough range to last 375 miles.
