Chevy Volt Displays Shown in Depth

By David Thomas  on September 15, 2010
We knew the Chevy Volt would have a center-mounted digital screen for onboard information and a digital speedometer instead of a traditional gauge cluster. But now we have images of both displays and their optional screens.

The most intriguing thing is the digital Driver Information Center, which replaces the gauge cluster. It is a very rectangular display with 3-D icons to show range and charging status. Speed is shown with a simple white numeral in the center of the display. When you charge the Volt, this display changes to a status screen.

The more traditional center display screen shows detailed trip data, how your driving style and climate settings are affecting efficiency, and menus for setting a time to charge your Volt later in the evening when electricity costs less.

Check out larger versions of the screens by clicking any of the images below.
