2013 Chevrolet Volt Specs Revealed. More Range, Hold Mode, And Slower Charging?

In a brochure obtained by InsideEVs, and produced by GM, with the apparent intention of having it reviewed by their sales people to brush up on all the 2013 model year Volt changes and talking points, the General not only outlines the new features of the car, but as a special bonus, illustrates how these new features should be demonstrated and sold.

The 4 Drive Modes of the 2013 Volt
HOLD MODE: A feature that was first introduced in the Opel Ampera, and that is now standard on the 2013 Volt. This feature allows the driver to NOT use the on board lithium battery to propel the car, despite it still being charge capable. GM notes that hold mode will not charge the battery from the ICE, and that the car now has four driving modes: normal, sport, mountain and hold.

“…will hold EV range and drive in extended range mode until feature is disabled. Ideal use: Engage for those routes that begin with highway driving, allowing drivers to save the EV range for stop-and-go city traffic”

IMPROVED RANGE AND EFFICIENCY: As previously released information stated, the 2013 Volt now gets an EPA 38 miles of electric range and 98 MPGe. The brochure notes that this MPGe efficiency is obtained “…due to more efficient electric operation.” Extended range driving (non-electric) is now up to 344 miles, and total range is up to 380 miles. (…and yes, I understand that 344 + 38 = 382, but who am I to correct GM on their math?)
