Libertyville Chevrolet Recognizes the First Chevy Volt Owner for Getting 460 MPG

The early adopter of the Chevrolet electric car happily reports on how little gas he has purchased.

2013 Chevy Volt
PRLog - Dec. 21, 2012 - LIBERTYVILLE, Ill. -- Libertyville Chevrolet, a local Chicagoland Chevy dealership (http://www.libertyvillechevrolet.com/dealership/about.htm), is happy to celebrate the second anniversary of the sale of the first Chevrolet Volt. In 2010, Jeff Kaffee took possession of his new electric car in Parsippany, New Jersey. The retired pilot has put around 12,000 miles on his Volt since its purchase and has only put 26.1 gallons of gas in the tank. That amazing number works out to about 460 miles per gallon.

Kaffee claims he almost never goes out of his way to find a charger away from home. His Volt stays plugged in at home when it’s parked in the garage, but he rarely plugs in elsewhere. He does almost all of his daily driving within the Volt’s range, which he estimates at 40 miles in the warmer months and 35 miles in the colder part of the year.  

The one thing that surprised Kaffee about the Volt is its lack of problems. He assumed a car that ran on relatively new technology would require trips to the dealership often, but instead, the Volt has been nearly maintenance free.

As electric car charging infrastructure is further developed across the country, more and more drivers are sure to choose plug-In vehicles like the Chevrolet Volt. The current Chevrolet Volt can be had for only $31,645 after a total $7,500 in federal tax credit. The EPA estimates the Volt’s range at 38 miles on a full charge, and a total driving range with a full tank of gas at 380 miles. Chevy also stands behind the Voltec electric system and battery with an 8-year 100,000 mile limited warranty.

Libertyville Chevrolet (http://www.libertyvillechevrolet.com/dealership/direction...) is a local full service dealership offering the full range of new Chevrolet vehicles, a large selection of pre-owned vehicles, service, parts, and financing. Libertyville Chevrolet is located at 1001 S Milwaukee Avenue in Libertyville, a northwest suburb of Chicago. Libertyville Chevrolet is proud to stock the current Chevrolet Volt, and provide Chicagoland drivers an opportunity to test-drive and take home the next generation of plug-in, range extended, electric vehicles.
