EPA needs to test here in southern Illinois in the spring. They could rate the the Volt at 60+ miles. My GOM bounces between 60 and 65 miles everyday here in FLATLAND Illinois. Kansas would be another good test location as long as there are no winds.Yes it is a different testing standard and has the same battery pack. My 16 Volt now averages about 62 miles on the guess o meter now that it has warmed up in mixed highway and city driving.

If they're the same (they might not be) perhaps you could buy them? Best guess is with the silver grills it looks more consistent with chrome headlights...However since the Bolt EV has a dark gray and black grills, probably a safe bet as soon as MY18 the Volt will follow suit with darker grills and who knows, adopt the Velite's black trimmed headlights...Another question is why the does Velite have black headlights and the US version has chrome/silver headlights.
Gen 1 has black headlights which is aesthetically better looking than silver yet they didn't make that black on Gen 2 which is stupid
Stupid stuff that pisses me off lol
because they weigh lessI 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)?
