The Chevy Volt reached a new milestone as it achieves the 100 million all-electric mile mark.
Chevy Volt owners have recently eclipsed a combined 100 million all-electric miles since this vehicle went on sale two years. Around 65% of the time Volt owners travel, it’s in the pure electric mode that the car was designed to drive in. The only time the gas-powered generator is typically used is on the longer road trips.
When Volt owners charge on a regular basis, they can drive up to 900 miles or roughly 45 days before they have to fill-up again. If longer trips are held to a minimum, owners like Andrew Byrne of Los Angeles, can achieve efficiency far beyond that. “Since my daily driving is all electric, I only really need to buy gas for long road trips,” Byrne said. “I drove over 1,900 miles on my last tank of gas.”
EPA estimates are suggesting that Volt purchases are really paying off compared to the average new vehicle purchased. It’s estimated that Volt owners are saving around $1,370 a year fuel costs.
“The best sign of a great product is when your customers are the most satisfied in the industry,” said Cristi Landy, Chevrolet Volt marketing director. “Volt owners have found the Volt is not only fun to drive, but provides technology and performance where consumers need it most.”
The fuel efficiency of the Volt is so impressive and the money saved is so substantial that it’s no surprise that for the second year in a row this vehicle has ranked first in an owner satisfaction survey done by one of the top consumer reporting organizations in the country.
