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)?

Same thing happens in Texas. Everything is bigger in Texas.

But steverino is right. I would ignore the EPA ratings anyway and go by the lifetime MPG on the dash. Some people are getting nearly infinite MPG and folks like me w it's a longer than range commute can only squeeze out 70 MPG, still blows away any Prius.
