Did you have winter tires on it?
With my Nokian Hakkapelita 7 studded, I obtain exactly HALF of what I have in summer in autonomy, so the tires plays a big role in autonomy as much as cold temperatures.
From what I see your results are almost the same as mine, I bet the cold temperature is really impacting your results, but have a good look on tire pressure before each ride, in cold temperature it can vary a lot and in my case it explained a lot of bad results, using nitrogen will greatly help stabilizing tire pressures.

Low mileage in the cold weather? How low?
I have had a Volt for about 15 months now. I live in NY, just north of NYC. Last winter the car got between 27-31 miles per charge when it was under 40 degrees.
This year, since we have been having the same weather I am only getting 18-21 per charge. My driving is the same, I use very little defrosting and seat warming. Short commute to and from the train every day.
Does anyone else who lives in cold climates get this type of results? I am thinking something is wrong but I want to hear from my fellow Volt owners in cold climates.
Thanks for any info you can share! Happy New Year!!
