The Chevrolet Volt electric vehicle with extended range will provide customers with an unprecedented, standard, eight-year/100,000-mile warranty on its advanced, lithium-ion battery.


GM claims it is the industry’s longest, most comprehensive battery warranty for an electric vehicle, and is transferable at no cost to other vehicle owners.


The Volt’s comprehensive battery warranty covers all 161 battery components, 95 per cent of which are designed and engineered by GM.
