Collectively, Chevrolet claims that owners of Volt range-extended EVs have driven over 100 million miles on nothing but all-electric power.
With regular charging, Chevy says that the average Volt owner gets approximately 900 miles out of a single tank of gas. Compared to the fuel usage of the average new vehicle sold in the States, Volt owners who charge up regularly can save around $1,370 a year.
On top of the possibility of saving money, the Volt has also been rated number one in Consumer Reports satisfaction survey, showing that those that do spring for a Chevy Volt like it a lot.
The Volt has an all-electric range of 38 miles, but above and beyond that, the gas-powered generator will kick in for power, which Chevy says is good for 344 miles on a full tank.
