"Take shit from your gas guzzling buddies, and spend hours at charging stations just to get mistaken for a rideshare driver. The Cheval Surge turns the zero emissions dream into a dull reality."
Southern San Andreas Super Autos description.

The Cheval Surge is a four-door electric compact sedan in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.

Design

Grand Theft Auto V

This car appears to be heavily influenced by the Chevrolet/Holden Volt hybrid sedan, while the front fascia bears a slight resemblance to that of the Honda Insight.

The front end of this car features a dominant chrome-finished central grille formation, which increases in width with height along the front. There is a blue light around both grille formations that is on once the car has been turned on. At the bottom of the formation there is a shallow, central vent which spans half the bumper width. Either side of this vent there are equally shallow vents, whose inner edges are parallel to the outer edge of the central formation. The lower edges of the headlamp units coincide with the lower edge of the main grille. The upper edge of the headlamp units coincides with the top edge of the central formation. The curves that form the edges for the bonnet/ hood elevation run from a top corner of the formation to its corresponding corner of the windscreen.

The Surge uses the same rim design as the ones on the Bullet.

Performance

Grand Theft Auto V

The Surge has a front wheel drive drivetrain. It has a decent top speed, thanks to the powerful electric motor driving the front wheels. Since it has no transmission, the electric motor directly drives the wheels, which results in a very quick throttle response, allowing the Surge to accelerate much more quickly than other cars. Although technically not considered a performance car, the vehicle has excellent on-road handling, and its good weight distribution and suspension allows it to take corners without spinning out of control, although understeer may become an issue at higher speeds. The only downside to this car is its mediocre durability; the Surge can withstand very few hits before its wheels lock up.

Even though it is an electric car, the Surge can still explode on impact if falling from a certain height, just like a regular car. This implies that the Surge uses either a lithium-polymer battery or a fuel cell, both of which could catch fire and explode if severely damaged in real life.

Like the Dilettante, the Surge will run quietly until its speed is high.

Trivia

  • The name is a reference to its inspiration, the Chevrolet Volt. The words "surge" and "volt" are synonymous with electricity.
  • Surge means "Arises" in Portuguese and Spanish, derived from the Latin word "surgo" - to get up/stand up.
  • Despite the Volt being a hybrid, the Surge is fully electric.
    • Its all-electric engine may be inspired by one of Chevrolet Volt's competitor (namely, the Nissan Leaf, which is also an all-electric compact car).
  • The default radio stations for the Surge are FlyLo FM or Soulwax FM.
  • Despite the fact that the Surge is an all-electric vehicle, on the PS4 and Xbox One version of GTA V, there are temperature and fuel gauges on the dashboard, this is probably a developer oversight and a symptom of the shared dashboard models applied to different classes of vehicles.
