Chevrolet has released preliminary details about how customers will be able to charge their 2016 Volt.

Set to be unveiled in January at NAIAS, the second generation Chevrolet Volt will enable the user to charge the car easier thanks to a number of improvements. For example, the owner will have the possibility of adjusting the charging preferences for the "home charging location" and the car will recognize it as home using the GPS data.

In other words, the driver of a 2016 Volt will be able to pre-set the charging level (8 amps or 12 amps on 120V only) and to either recharge immediately or set a departure time for each day of the week. In addition, the user can also set a departure time and a utility rate schedule to charge the batteries only during off-peak rates to save money.

The overhauled Volt will feature newly developed charge status indicators promising to be more intuitive, along with a nearly 25-feet (7.6 meters) long 120V portable cord which can be stored on the left side of the rear cargo area above the load floor.
