Chevrolet Volt gets minor improvements for 2012

The new EPA sticker for the mildly-refreshed Chevrolet Volt has been released by the Environmental Protection Agency. The car's all-electric range has been raised by 0.5 kWh, thus featuring a battery capacity of 16.5 kWh. Furthermore, the 5 MPGe improvement has made the car slightly more efficient, being able to travel for longer on a single charge, up to 35 miles. The juice already stored in the battery pack, which is a feature available on the opel/Vauxhall Ampera, is preserved by the use of the "EV Hold Mode" which forces the 1.4-liter engine. Now commonplace among the tech-savy European manufacturers, a lane departure warning system is another addiction of this car. Chevrolet is ditching both the black trunk and roof in case some enthusiasts don't really like those.
