Report: Chevrolet Volt to Get 230 MPG
Chevroletís upcoming Volt plug-in hybrid will get 230 miles per gallon according to General Motors. The astonishingly high number comes as the result of new EPA methods for testing fuel mileage for PHEVs.
GM made the announcement today as a part of a product and technology event held at the companyís Design Center and Milford Proving Grounds.
How exactly GM came by that number we canít say for sure, but we can say that it is for city driving only. Highway driving wonít be as high, but GM says that number will still be in the triple digits. What we do know is that the number is somewhat of an average between those who donít ever need to gas up and those who do.
