There IS a section about this in the owner's manual (both the Volt being towed and the Volt towing another load).
Towing a trailer or other vehicle: not allowed.
- should be towed on a flatbed trailer: special instructions for loading it.
- can be towed by lifting front wheels on a dolly ("dinghy towing" is forbidden). Be careful about ground clearance of the rear.
I was told today during my test drive that there will be a hitch kit to hold a bike rack eventhough the bottom center of the back bumper has a backup light that sticks out lower than the bumper bottome....
I've definitely been hoping to occasionally tow a small trailer, at moderate speeds. The information in this thread has been helpful. Indeed, the weights pencil out just fine, and the ability to do light towing would be another step positioning the Volt as the one car you need, rather than as a "second vehicle", which is what GM's vision is.
Thank you for asking the following question:
Does this hitch also fit Chevy Volt?
I am sorry, but hitch # 60275 is only a fit for the 2011 Chevrolet Cruze. At this time we do not offer any hitch fits for your Chevrolet Volt. Feel free to check back frequently, as we generally receive the new hitch fits as soon as the manufacturers release them.
