Introduced in 2010, the Chevrolet Volt proved to be the most popular plug-in hybrid vehicle in the United States from the time it hit the market until 2015. During that time, consumers purchased more than 75,000 units. As a battery electric vehicle, the Volt will run until such time as its battery reserve falls below a certain level. At that point, the Volt’s internal combustion engine runs the vehicle’s electric generator to keep it running. The newest Volt’s all-electric range has been improved to 50 miles, which outpaces its predecessors by some 12 miles. With the turning of the calendar to 2015, Chevrolet left the first generation of the Volt behind. The new Chevrolet Volt for sale now has an enhanced powertrain, a new battery with 20% more capacity, and motors that are 100 pounds lighter than before. Because of the limited amount of Volts that Chevy has sold, bidders looking for salvage cars for sale in car auctions should consider searching for the manufactured vehicle by its rebadged names — the Holden Volt, Vauxhall Ampera and the Opel Ampera. If you are in the market for a first-generation Volt, including the 2014 Chevrolet Volt, ABetter.bid is a great resource. Whether you want a used vehicle, parts or even an affordable battery, salvage cars are available in auctions at tremendous savings. Additional Chevrolet models are available through car auctions as well, including the Chevrolet Silverado, Suburban, Equinox, Aveo and the Cobalt.
