"The Voltic was the first highway-capable, all-electric sports car on the market in the United States. Boasts a battery life shorter than your iFruit phone so that you can still call a cab home when you grind to a halt in the middle of nowhere."
Legendarymotorsport.net description.

The Coil Voltic is an all-electric sports car in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.

Design

"I can’t imagine what it would be like to have a midlife crisis or to want for female attention but, if I did, I wouldn’t think twice about investing a small percentage of my future earnings to secure a sports car like this. Many of you are probably thinking that owning a Voltic is an impossible dream but I’m here to tell you that, with some creative collateral in place, I can make that dream come true with NO credit check. Drive it home today with ZERO down!"
Simeon Yetarian

This car is inspired by the Tesla Roadster and Lotus Elise with styling from the Hennessey Venom GT. As such it features a low front end with a fairly tall front face, featuring three bumper grilles; the central grille spanning two thirds of the bumper width and then a smaller one either side. The headlights are totally ovular, which somehow resembles Rinspeed sQuba, an amphibious car based on Lotus Elise. The manufacturer emblem is located right in front of the bonnet/hood, in the centre. The bonnet/hood features two large, curved-edge intakes placed in the middle. The Voltic may also share some inspiration from the Porsche 918 Spyder hybrid hypercar.

The sides of the car are very curvy and the greenhouse shrinks in width towards the rear of the car. The main body line curves downwards between the two arches, but curves upwards for either arch, more so for the rear arch, much like a Series 2 Lotus Exige. The main lines that form the edge of the side intakes for the car are also curved. The intake just in front of the rear wheel arch features a CFRP insert. The wheelbase of the car is relatively short, giving the car the appearance of a lightweight, compact roadster, typical of a Lotus-related design. The wheels featured on this car are split five spoke wheels, which appear to be inspired by those found on the Lotus Exige S.

The rear end of this car features rear lighting made up of two circular lamps either side of a central section. The lower area of the rear bumper has a plastic insert. This rear face arrangement very much resembles a Series 2 Lotus Exige. The Voltic can come in hardtop, topless, and a carbon fiber rooftop forms. Note that none of these roofs can be retracted, only topless forms can be found pre-retracted.

Performance

GTA V

The Voltic is an averagely fast car, with incredibly quick and responsive acceleration. Since it is an electric vehicle, the Voltic has a specially-tuned single-speed transmission which directly drives the rear wheels. This results in the vehicle having a very quick throttle response. Its powerful electric engine provides sufficient torque for the vehicle to climb steep hills with ease, and acceleration in this vehicle is one of the best in the game, tied with the Rapid GT sports car. Handling is quick and sharp, thanks to its very light design and low profile, but its short wheelbase could lead to loss of control, especially at high speeds. Also, its light weight and short wheelbase makes it very easy to get pushed off the road by other heavier cars. The vehicle's durability is mediocre, as its body panels are very easily deformable and detachable from collisions. The wheels also have a tendency to get bent and lock up easily.

Due to it being an electric powered vehicle, there is very little to no noise coming from the engine, even at high speeds or accelerating with a handbrake. In fact, it only makes a noise if the vehicle is moving, and is clearly noted when is used with a radio turned off and in a quieter area.

Trivia

  • With a price of $150,000, the hard-top variant is the cheapest car in Super class.
  • The default radio stations for the Voltic are FlyLo FM or Soulwax FM.
  • Although this car is based on Lotus Elise, the car's name, Coil Voltic, may be inspired from its electric-driven descendant, the Tesla Roadster ("Coil" refers to Nikola Tesla, the inventor of the Tesla coil, while "Voltic" may refer to Tesla Roadster's status as an electric sports car).
  • Being an electric vehicle, the car will not explode when caught fire by jerry can, however, this doesn't mean the car is indestructible, it can still be destroyed by other means of damage, such as explosives, falling from excessive height or from constant gun-fire. Note that damage caused by fire (such as molotovs or a jerry can) will eventually destroy the battery, rendering the car unable to drive.
  • Due to the electric motor being directly connected to the wheels, the Voltic can go just as fast in reverse as it can forwards.
  • The Voltic also shares a similarity to the Alarde, which is also based on an Elise in the 2003 game Midnight Club II (another well-known Rockstar game, although the Alarde itself is not considered an electric car).
  • The Voltic is one of the fastest accelerating vehicles in a straight line without upgrades, beating the Entity XF and Adder. This is because electric cars have huge amounts of torque available as soon as the engine starts, and because the single-speed transmission has been specially tuned to optimize acceleration, just like the real-life Tesla Roadster.
    • Also, because it has an electric motor instead of an internal combustion engine, the Voltic is one of the very few cars in the game that can't have a Turbo or EMS upgrade installed.
  • Despite it being a single transmission car, there is a six speed gearbox inside. This is most likely an oversight.
  • After the 1.17 patch, if the primary colour is changed at Los Santos Customs, the hood will not be painted, and will stay its original color. This has been fixed in the enhanced version of the game.
