The Chevrolet Volt is a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle and is available for customers in the US since late 2010. The Volt was rated the most fuel-efficient car with an internal combustion engine sold in the United States by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

According to the tests conducted by EPA, the average all-electric range of the vehicle is 35 miles (56 km), with an energy consumption of 36 kWh per 100 miles (810 kJ/km). The total range using initially the only-electric drive and then the electricity generated by the internal engine, is 379 miles (610 km). The vehicle's battery can be charged at a domestic electrical outlet.

The Chevrolet Volt is available as 5-door hatchback compact car with front engine, front-wheel drive layout. It was first introduced as concept vehicle in 2007 and was a significant evolution from the electric vehicles General Motors had developed throughout the 1990s. It offered seating for four passengers (instead of only two), reached higher speed and was equipped with a more efficient battery. The production model of the Volt presented in 2008 differed significantly from the initial concept, due to aerodynamic considerations.

The same model is marketed in Europe as Opel Ampera, Vauxhall Ampera and in Australia as Holden Volt.
