Slightly sooner than expected, too.

It’s now official. Chevrolet has pulled the plug on production of its Volt. The plug-in hybrid that helped kick-start the electric vehicle revolution will no longer roll from the Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant. The cessation seems to be a bit earlier than expected. When contacted after news of model’s upcoming demise first broke, the automaker had said production would stop in March of this year.

Ostensibly, the decision to axe the Chevy Volt was made because the company plans to close the entire factory in which it is built. However, now comes news that the facility will remain open until January of 2020, pumping out pollution machines like the Chevrolet Impala and Cadillac CT6. The Buick LaCrosse, which is also produced there, did not get a reprieve.

Buy This Six-Speed Chevy SS Before It Disappears Into a Collection Forever

Buy This Six-Speed Chevy SS Before It Disappears Into a Collection Forever The SS sedan is a rare breed of car, especially with three pedals. Here's one you can own. For the handful of years it was for sale in the US, the SS sedan was the most under-appreciated new performance car in Chevy's lineup. Based on the Australian-built Holden Commodore, it paired an unassuming four-door body with an LS3 V8 from the last-gen Corvette, sending power to the rear wheels via an optional six-speed manual. It checked all the boxes, and drove wonderfully. Few stick-shift examples were sold, and now, they're pretty hard to come by. This one just popped up for sale on eBay Motors.

Chevy Volt Production Officially Comes To An End . The world's best-selling plug-in hybrid is no more. A lone Chevy Volt has hit another mileage milestone of 400,000 miles driven. The owner reports no noticeable battery degradation to date.

This truly marks the end of an era. The car was very attractive to those who felt an all-electric couldn’t completely fulfill their needs. The 2019 edition can travel an EPA-rated 53 miles on a charge before the gas engine kicks in to keep the vehicle in motion. Indeed, it was a huge sales success in some parts of the U.S. and in 2018, it edged out its all-electric sibling the Chevy Bolt on our Plug-In Sales Scorecard by a few hundred units.

The situation is especially sad for our InsideEVs resident Volt owner. His car is serving him quite well, even if it has, as evidenced in the photo below, also been recently put on ice.

The model’s demise doesn’t mean the end of the road for plug-in hybrids with significant range. The Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid effectively function in a very similar way, allowing owners to mostly drive using energy from the battery, but also allowing for trips far beyond its 48-mile electric range without the need to stop at a charging station.
