The prestigious trade journal Ward’s Auto puts out their list of “10 Best Engines” each year, commemorating the year’s very best power generators. But this year, Ward’s has passed a huge milestone—choosing three hybrid powertrains, including that of the 2016 Chevrolet Volt.
The 2016 Volt, which is merely the second-generation model of the car, uses a 1.5-liter, four-cylinder to provide electricity to an electric motor as well as an 18.4-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery.
Additionally, the Volt is able to run on electricity alone for up to 53 miles, unlike the other two hybrid models, the 2016 Hyundai Sonata Plug-In Hybrid and Toyota Prius, which can never run purely on electricity.
The fact that the 2016 Chevy Volt made the “10 Best Engines” list of 2016 is not only a testament to the car’s brilliant construction but also might just be a look into the future of automobiles.
