Chevy Volt Owners Hit Impressive Milestone
The Chevrolet Volt first came to market back in 2011, and the brand new EV turned a lot of heads on dealer showroom floors. Now, older models of the Chevy Volt can be purchased at Cincinnati used car dealerships, making it even more affordable and available to those who are interested. This week General Motors will be starting up the assembly line production of the 2015 Volt, and the auto giant is taking a look back at a few of the numbers that the Chevy Volt has accumulated in the past four years.
Chevy Volt by the Numbers
It’s true that no other car has made such an impact on the environment as the mass-produced Chevrolet Volt, and was the first vehicle of its kind to be made available in all fifty states. To get an idea of how far the Chevy Volt has come since it first rolled off the assembly line in 2011, to now, we have a few numbers for you to check out.
- Half-Billion. It’s hard to imagine such a large number, but it exists. Add a little more to it, and that’s how many electric miles Chevy Volt owners have collectively put on their cars over the past four years.
- 970. That is the average amount of miles the average Volt owner goes between filling up at the pump. Wouldn’t that be nice?
- 63. That is the percentage of all Volt-driven miles that were accomplished on battery power alone.
- 81. Those Volt owners who drive to and from work spend this percentage of their commute using electric miles only.
- 1.4. That number represents the number of times two-thirds of all Volt drivers charge their vehicles per day.
- 90. The percentage of trips taken in the Volt that are done on electric power alone.
- 35. The range of miles that the average Volt owner is able to achieve after ownership of at least 30 months.
