Jolt is a technician armed with a pair of electric whips, befitting his electric car alternate mode is a Chevrolet Volt. He was a last-minute addition to the cast as General Motors wanted to promote the Volt. The writers had already wanted to include the car in the script before the Writers Guild strike, so they had to work out a character that would fit well within the Autobot team afterwards and convince Bay to approve the addition. Welburn was pleased the Volt's character was christened Jolt by the filmmakers, as it reflected that car's design character.He appears in Revenge of the Fallen being surrounded by NEST forces along with Sideswipe, Ratchet, and Ironhide. He also fought in the battle in Egypt. After Jetfire sacrificed his parts to Optimus, He and Ratchet used his whips to fuse Jetfire's parts onto Optimus. He does not return in Dark of the Moon as in a prequel comic he is killed by Shockwave.

Famous quotes containing the word jolt:
“We are such docile creatures, normally, that it takes a virus to jolt us out of lifes routine. A couple of days in a fever bed are, in a sense, health-giving; the change in body temperature, the change in pulse rate, and the change of scene have a restorative effect on the system equal to the hell they raise.”
—E.B. (Elwyn Brooks)
“A sudden violent jolt of it has been known to stop the victims watch, snap his suspenders and crack his glass eye right across.”
—Irvin S. Cobb (18761944)
