2016 Chevy Volt Is Quieter, Handles Better, Says Latest Teaser Video

As General Motors works to stoke interest ahead of its 2015 Detroit Auto Show debut, the 2016 Chevrolet Volt is getting more teasers than a Hollywood blockbuster.

While the last video confirmed that the new Volt can do something virtually every car can do–drive on snow–this one highlights some even more basic features.

Namely, that the 2016 Volt is quieter and handles better than the current model–something that automakers aim for with every redesign.

That assessment comes from GM product chief Mark Reuss, who took the wheel for this short video.

Along with the video above, that makes four released so far under the hashtag #NextGenVolt.
The teases started back in August, when GM released a carefully-edited photo of the new Volt’s back end and badging.

Then in October, the company released a photo of a fully-camouflaged prototype Volt–and discussed the technique for camouflaging test vehicles driven on public roads.

Roughly a month later at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show, a photo of the Volt’s partially uncovered front end was released after an owner preview event.
The 2016 Chevrolet Volt will be formally unveiled Monday, January 12, at the Detroit Auto Show.
