Chevrolet has released a new video of GM Executive Vice President of Global Product Development, Mark Reuss, test driving the 2016 Volt.

In the clip, Reuss confirms the model will have a regenerative braking on demand function which is controlled by steering wheel-mounted paddles. The system will enable drivers to engage the regenerative braking system when they're slowing down or approaching a stop light. Furthermore, Reuss says "It is even more refined than the [system on the] ELR."

The video also gives us our first glimpse of the interior. While it is covered by camouflage, we can see the 2016 Volt will have a digital instrument cluster, metallic trim and an evolutionary center stack with a larger infotainment display.

As we have previously reported, the 2016 Volt will have a new two-motor drive unit that weighs 100 lbs (45 kg) less than its predecessor and is approximately 5-12 percent more efficient. The model will also have an all-new 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine with direct injection, a variable displacement oil pump, cooled exhaust gas recirculation and a high-compression ratio of 12.5:1.
