The second-generation Chevrolet Volt will go about 50 miles on an electric charge, up from 38 on today's model, as General Motors looks to broaden the plug-in hybrid's appeal beyond environmentalists and tech geeks.
The 2016 Volt, unveiled today at the auto show here, is a clean-sheet redesign of the ground-breaking first iteration that went on sale in late 2010. GM says the car -- which sports more sedan-like styling and a more sinister face -- will be quicker off the line and quieter inside when it hits showrooms in the second half of this year.
