Chevrolet is scheduled to reveal the all-new second-generation 2016 Chevy Volt next week at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show, but the automaker just gave the world a sneak peek at the plug-in hybrid at the Consumer Electronics Show. On the eve of the show in Las Vegas, Chevy surprised the media by quickly pulling the wraps off the 2016 Volt, which will have a longer electric driving range thanks to a larger battery and a more efficient powertrain.
