  1. 2019 Hyundai Kona Electric: 258 Mile Range

    Other EVs PHEVs EREVs
    The EPA just revealed its figures for the 2019 Hyundai Kona Electric, the automaker's first battery-electric crossover in the US. It's officially rated at 258 miles per charge, which is 20 miles more than the Bolt EV. It's not even close to other competitors, coming in 107 miles higher than the...
  2. 2016 Volt - Battery range not living up to rating at 46 miles per charge vs. 53

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    This car is rated to have a 53 mile range on a charge. After more than 2 weeks of owning the car I've not even once gotten above the 46 mile mark (and the display showed a 46 mile range when I picked it up from the dealer fully charged and brand new). The dealer where I bought it from is telling...
  3. Maximum Battery Range on dash for 2016 Volt?

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    Anyone know what the battery on the dash will max out to for the 2016 Volt? 2011-2012 Volt: 50 miles 2013-2015 Volt: 60 miles 2016 Volt: ??? miles. (I put 3 ?'s on purpose :))
  4. 81.8 Miles On A Single Charge / No Elevation Change

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I had been planning this for weeks. Finally had a warm day, no rain, and no other activities to get in the way. Temperature was perfect. Started out 89F, cooled down to 80F by the end of the drive. Before I started, I inflated my tires to 60 PSI, from their usual 52 PSI. I only stopped once...
  5. Great cold weather experience and thought about some recent threads

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    It was 21 degrees this morning in Acton (MA, not ME or CA). Beautiful, clear, with light frost on the paint, but not the windows (yea!). I have my system set to only use the ICE for supplemental heat below 15 because I have a 17-21 mile commute (depending on route) and can make the whole...
  6. 50 Mile Range Estimate :)

    Li-Ion Battery, Charging, Mgmt System - Chevy Volt
    Finally! This is the first time in over two years, (well, ever for me) that my Volt has displayed a 50 mile range estimate. Until now the highest display I have seen has been 49. I know others have achieved this, but it's a first for me. My 2011 has an EPA estimate of 35 miles, so this 50 mile...
  7. 53 battery miles

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Had some handyman work to help with today at a relative's house. Started out with a full battery and 46 mile range estimate. Round trip was 43 miles and I still had 10 miles showing on the battery range! While there, I passed another Cyber Gray Volt and waved. I am seeing more Volts around. I...
  8. Battery Mile Estimate Lower Than Advertised. Problem?

    Li-Ion Battery, Charging, Mgmt System - Chevy Volt
    Summary New Volts have a low battery range estimate that will increase over time based on the points below. Volts in cold weather will see a drop in the battery range based on the points below. This will reverse when the weather warms again. Volts with battery service will see the battery...
  9. 54.2 Miles on Battery, 134 MPG Lifetime

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Our best battery range mileage to date. I know some have achieved more, but this is from a real, "normal" drive with a mix of half city street and half highway driving. It's our daily commute in fact. I think cooler early morning and evening driving temps help. The Volt battery is kept at a 72...
  10. 54.2 Miles on Battery, 131 MPG Lifetime

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    My Volt continues to amaze me. While naysayers use a 35 mile battery range, I'm getting 50's even with expressway driving thrown in. I know my lifetime 131 MPG (over 16000 miles) is low compared to some, but my Volt has 60 mile workday commutes with no charging opportunity. So I'm actually...
  11. Best ambient temperature for battery range???

    Li-Ion Battery, Charging, Mgmt System - Chevy Volt
    Anyone know from either experience or maybe the battery system specification what is the ideal ambient temperature for the best battery range - mileage range??? I have an idea but it's just a guess!
