2011 Chevrolet Volt Passenger Safety Features

Air bags, dual-stage frontal, side-impact and knee for driver and front passenger and roof-rail side-impact for front and rear outboard seating positions includes Passenger Sensing System (Head curtain side air bags are designed to help reduce the risk of head and neck injuries to front and rear seat outboard occupants on the near side of certain side-impact collisions. Always use safety belts and the correct child restraints for your child's age and size. Even in vehicles equipped with air bags and the Passenger Sensing System, children are safer when properly secured in a rear seat in the appropriate infant, child or booster seat. Never place a rear-facing infant restraint in the front seat of any vehicle equipped with an active frontal air bag. See the Owner's Manual and child safety seat instructions for more safety information.)

Side Barrier Rating Note NHTSA has concluded that the crash test of this vehicle on May 12, 2011 damaged the Volt's lithium ion battery and that the damage led to a vehicle fire more than three weeks after the test was completed. Following additional, rigorous testing of the Volt's battery packs that resulted in a subsequent fire as well as an incident in which the battery emitted smoke and sparks, the agency has launched a safety defect investigation of potential post-crash fires in Chevy Volts.

Note Rollover Note: Dynamic (moving) test results (Tip or No Tip) and measured rollover-related properties determine vehicle's risk of rollover in single vehicle crash and its rollover rating. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is.
