Guaranty Chevrolet Volt Owners Exceeding Original EPA Electric-driving Estimate by 15% From 2011

Share Article

Chevrolet Volt MPGe number up over 15% from 2011, and drive 150 million combined electric miles; equivalent of trip from Earth to Mars.

"Our People Make the Difference"

My Chevy Volt continues to exceed my expectations

Orange County area Chevrolet Volt owners are consistently achieving the published EPA-estimated mileage of 98 MPGe gasoline-free miles; that's over 15% higher than the original MPG figures of 78MPGe. Their experience contributes to an out worldly total of 150 million electric-powered Volt driving miles – roughly the distance from Earth to Mars.

“Guaranty Chevrolet has seen and heard from our Volt owners that they are experiencing excellent performance numbers with their vehicle,” said Joe Renden of Guaranty Chevrolet. “In fact, many are beating the EPA label estimates.”

The typical Orange County area Volt owner who regularly charges the vehicle is going 900 miles between fill-ups of the gasoline engine that powers the Volt’s on-board generator. That avoids about $1,300 a year at the pump.

MPGe is a measure of the average distance traveled per unit of energy consumed. The EPA uses it to compare the consumption of alternative fuel vehicles, plug-in electric vehicles and other advanced technology vehicles with the fuel economy of conventional internal combustion vehicles expressed as miles per U.S. gallon of gasoline.

“The Chevy Volt continues to exceed all expectations,” said Tim Stevens of Tustin. “The Volt is so nice we may buy a new Eco model for the wife to take advantage of the HOV lanes,” Stevens mentions.

Orange County area Volt owners remain the most satisfied of any in the entire industry for the past two years with more than nine in 10 telling a major consumer publication they would buy another Volt.

For the first 38 miles, the Volt can drive gas and tailpipe-emissions-free using a full charge of electricity stored in its 16.50-kWh lithium-ion battery. When the Volt’s battery runs low, a gas-powered generator seamlessly operates to extend the driving range up to another 344 miles on a full tank.
