2016 Chevrolet Volt: Electric Range Games
by Kelly Hellwig, Managing Editor on April 13, 2016
When I unplugged the Volt at the office garage, it showed 50 miles of EV range on the charge meter. With the trip odometer at 0.4, I began my 37-mile drive home. I arrived home with 22 miles to spare.
Higher math tells me I drove 36.9 miles on 28 miles of "fuel," earning a bonus of 8.9 miles or approximately 25 percent of my one-way commute.
Traffic was pretty light, and I was able to drive normally (for So Cal), averaging around 60 mph.
Let the Range Games continue.
