First Drive Beyond EV Range of my 2014 Volt

We had to go from Hemet, CA to San Diego, CA today for our youngest daughter's baby shower. 195 mile round trip. I left the car in Normal Mode. I got a range of 52.1 miles on a full charge and 42 mpg when running in ICE mode. Average mpg of 57.2. I normally do a 26 mile trip to work, recharge there and do the reverse 26 mile trip home for all EV miles.
I am impressed and the more I drive the Volt the more I love it! (We have only had it a month or so). Note: Cruise Control was set at 63 mph for the highway portion of the trip which accounted for an estimated 95% of the miles.

This pretty much matches my experience with similar distances when I had the 2014. The 2014 model year is a really solid build and has a few more key features verses the earlier years. My only recommendation would be to use hold mode for the highway miles when you know you'll be exceeding the range. That said I really don't think you could have had better numbers than this. Welcome to the club. :)
