  1. Chevy Volt Engineering and Design
    I read today in an article about the Shanghai auto Show the claim that the Buick Velite, a rebadged Volt, has an electric-only range of 116 km or 72 miles. Anyone able to explain the basis for the difference from 53 miles (US) to 72 miles (China)?
  2. Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    Creating a thread to gather data on how speed affects electric range. I noticed that at 75mph my electric range seems terrible - but at 60mph it seems much better. Anyone with a regular highway commute - so we can get multiple datapoints under the same conditions - any data to share (total...
  3. Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I'm thinking of getting either a 2015 or 2016 Volt. Most of driving distance is trips of about 100 miles. I live on a pretty high hill for the area (n. central Mass, 1300' elevation). Most of my trips will begin with a 6 mile steady down hill with a 1000' elevation drop with a few short mild...

  6. Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    For those "viewers" who have yet to take delivery of their Volt or for those who are still deciding if a Volt is right for them, its been awhile since I've seen a post on electric range so I thought I'd post a screen shot of my latest drive today. This is "typical" of what I am seeing. My drive...
