2012 Volt Drivers Save a Barrels of Fuel!

Technically, that headline isn’t correct: So far, owners of the Chevrolet Volt actually have saved a supertanker’s worth of gasoline—more than 2.1 million gallons—as they’ve combined to drive some 40 million miles on electricity alone.
June 28, 2012 - PRLog -- It’s an important yet easy accomplishment for drivers, since the Volt is capable of an EPA-certified all-electric driving range of 35 miles per charge. If owners happen to run out of electricity on the road, it’s no problem, though, because the Volt’s high-efficiency gas-powered engine/generator takes over to allow another 344 miles of range. Taking advantage of both propulsion systems, the typical Volt driver covers an average of 900 miles between visits to the gas station.

“Our Volt owners are driving the vehicle exactly as the car was designed,” said Cristi Landy, Chevrolet Volt marketing manager. “Sixty percent of the time our owners are driving electric, but the extended range is providing additional miles when they need it. This shows that you don’t have to change your daily driving habits to drive the Volt.”

It’s something that you can see for yourself, too, now that the brand has leveraged OnStar data to launch a rolling ticker on the Chevrolet.com website that shows real-time mileage—and savings—being racked up by actual Volt drivers.

“With each click of the odometer, Chevrolet Volt owners are measuring their contribution to reducing America’s dependence on foreign oil and to preserving the environment,” added Landy.
