2014 Chevrolet Volt Exterior
The 2014 Chevy Volt is a bold midsize four-door hatchback with standard 17-inch wheels and LED running lights. The Volt was designed to be a futuristic vehicle not only with its powertrain, but its styling, so even though it hasn’t undergone a redesign in a few model years, its styling is far from stale. The 2014 Chevy Volt’s unique exterior design is still causing on-lookers to double take nationwide.
2014 Chevrolet Volt Performance
The 2014 Chevy Volt was obviously engineered with efficiency in mind, but its capable performance may surprise you. The 2014 Volt is powered primarily by an electric motor that generates 149 horsepower and an impressive 273 lb-ft of torque.
