2011 Chevrolet Volt EPA Rating

The EPA has finally issued its fuel consumption rating for the 2011 Chevrolet Volt, and thank God because this was the last thing holding up the first deliveries of GM’s new plug-in electric car. With an estimated 93 MPGE for electric usage and 37 MPG for traditional fuel, GM seems quite pleased. Autoblog.com reports that Chevrolet Volt Global Vehicle Line Executive Doug Parks is happy with the EPA’s numbers for the Volt. He also said that they (GM) worked together with the EPA to figure out how all different modes of driving actually impacted the Volt’s actual efficiency.

    i thought the volt was supposed to get 200 mpg…

  3. Those are some very impressive numbers at 93 mpg and around $600 spent yearly on gas in the electric mode. Out of all the electric cars, including the Leaf, the Volt is the best looking one out of the bunch so far. I am estimating that I am spending at LEAST $ $2,400 a year on gas but I drive around 40 miles daily and don’t have great fuel economy on my car.
