The 2019 Chevrolet Volt charges more quickly than its predecessor.
GM has announced that a new 7.2 kW charging system on the 2019 Chevrolet Volt cuts recharging times nearly in half. With the new 7.2 kW system, a complete recharge can be achieved in as little as 2.3 hours with a 240-volt outlet and supporting hardware.
The new system is standard on some trim levels, and optional on others. A 3.6 kW charger is the standard system.
“With about twice the range added during 240V Level 2 charging sessions, the 2019 Volt’s 7.2 kW system makes opportunity charging more worthwhile,” said Jesse Ortega, Chief Engineer, Chevrolet Electric Vehicles. “It effectively extends the vehicle’s all-electric driving range, while providing about twice the range for the money when plugging in at public facilities that charge by the hour.”
