General Motors provided a brief glimpse of its 2016 Chevrolet Volt at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) on Jan. 4, and will provide full details about the hybrid vehicle in Detroit on Jan. 12.

GM will unveil the next-gen Volt at the North American International Auto Show.

Chevrolet has dribbled out a few details about its redesigned Volt hybrid, including that it will include several user-friendly charging features allowing owners to pre-set charging levels.

The 2016 Volt will also offer a more efficient 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine that will deliver 20 percent more electric acceleration. The drive unit that consists of a pair of Voltec electric motors operates between 5 and 12 percent more efficiently and weighs 100 pounds less than the current system.

GM also released a photo of the Volt during testing while cloaked in camouflage.
