Taking limitations into consideration, for me,
I'd say 1/3 electric 2/3 gas, for example, 100 miles electric; 200 miles gas.
I think 50/50 too. I'd even go for 100 miles electric range; 100 miles gas range.
I am interested in buying a 2017 volt when it comes to Seattle.
I loved that one could put an air mattress in a Tesla and sleep in it heated overnight using just electricity to heat the car (no risk of carbon monoxide too). I have read that one can indeed closely fit an air mattress in a volt...
In recognition of National Drive Electric Week, the Institute for Energy and Sustainability is holding an Electric Vehicle Ride and Drive Event on Thursday, September 17, 2015. The event is being held at Worcester Polytechnic Institute in partnership with WPI and National Grid, and will...
Let me start off by saying I live in New York, if that makes a difference. I've had my volt for about a month now, and have received my first electricity bill since buying. To my horror, my bill went up from about $350 gas AND electric - to $850! I nervously called ConEdison to see if there was...
Love the Volt so far - have driven 1833 miles in first 30 days with 95 MPG! Super happy so far.
Hopefully this is something simple or my user error!
I am now facing this problem intermittently - the A/C is unable to go to 'ECO' mode but 'Fan Only' or 'Comfort' work just fine. I...

I leased a Volt three weeks ago, and am already considering installing a solar PV system (thanks in no small part to the GM-Volt community, who sparked my interest almost immediately; I've perused these forums daily for weeks, and am amazed at the level of knowledge and helpfulness).
I'm in the...
I have some Volts left....and we want to sell them to a GM Volt Forum Customer! You have till the end of December to take advantage of these great deals! I actually own a Volt and can answer all of your questions and would love to make you a great deal!
All you have to do is call me at Santa...
"There's a train of thought that goes thus:
If you're going to launch an electric concept car, you may as well give it outrageous performance and range statistics as it'll never see the light of day anyway, and nobody can prove you wrong."
For the second time I have had an issue where my volt would not provide heat. The "HEAT ON" symbol would not turn on and had to make a real cold trip. This is the second time this has happened so I took it into the dealer to be reviewed. Apparently this is a none issue and GM is working on a...
"Sales of electric vehicles won’t take off until automakers lower prices and demonstrate the economic benefits to consumers, according to a J.D. Power and Associates study of electric vehicle ownership."

I don't know if this is technically possible, but let's say that I don't care about mileage and just want MAXIMUM juice to the motor for some really nasty torque. Sport mode is really good, and I can say usually leaves every one else behind at the red light.
But could we get more? :confused:
Hey all! I'm currently an advertising student at Temple University and am doing my senior project on developing a campaign for the Chevy volt. I was wondering if you all could take this 1Q poll on the Volt...thanks!
Rather than a personalized license plate, I went with a personalized Chevy Bow Tie. A little more understated, but stated nonetheless.
I have added the EPS file below so you can download it if you want. Change the extension from"pdf" to "eps" before supplying it to a sign/decal company.
I just saw a news story that the city of Boston is installing some charging stations. This is great news. here is a link to read the story. http://boston.cbslocal.com/2011/05/23/electric-car-charging-stations-installed-in-boston/
Just enter "ev charging station near (city, state)". Example, "ev charging station near Detroit, MI".
Don't be surprised if the pickings are slim. Then again, Volt owners don't need to worry about this much.
Interestingly, Google's map displays more than I get using the DOE's site, which Google...
