Chevrolet has added another industry recognition to its lineup as the 2017 Chevrolet Volt extended range electric vehicle (EREV) earns a 2017 Wards 10 Best Engines Award.

This marks the second consecutive year that the Volt has won the award and the third time overall.

The second-generation Volt delivers a unique execution of a two motor drive unit with 294 lb/ft of torque, a 18.4 kWh lithium-ion battery pack and an efficient Ecotec 1.5-litre gasoline range extender.

Together, they provide an EPA-estimated 106 MPGe, 53 miles of EV range and 420 miles of total driving range.

Since the first-generation Volt came to market, owners have driven about 1.5 billion miles in EV mode, saving about 58 million gallons of gas.

Data shows drivers use all-electric power more than 80 per cent of the time.

In addition to the award-winning propulsion system, the 2017 Volt offers new, unique, built-in Teen Driver Technology that encourages safe driving habits and lets parents know how their teenager drove the vehicle.

Full-speed Adaptive Cruise Control and Forward Automatic Braking safety features are also available.
