2016 Chevrolet Volt: Electric Range Games

2016 Chevrolet Volt

Some of the guys have been bragging about their range accomplishments in our 2016 Chevrolet Volt test car, so I'm going to add my "win" to the mix.

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.
