Offering extended range capability due to its on-board petrol generator, the Holden Volt runs on electricity 100 per cent of the time. The first 87 kilometres, depending on driving style and condition, can be driven on a charge from a regular household wall outlet but when that charge is depleted, the generator switches on to maintain a charge in the battery that gives the car more than 600 kilometres of total range. Volt’s cockpit design creates a unique driving experience. The touch sensitive centre stack houses a seven-inch LCD colour touch screen which relays real-time information on energy use and power flow to the driver. It offers the driver efficiency feedback based on driving style and climate settings and will even give tips on how to reduce energy usage.
