Chevy Volts Driven in EV Mode 80% of the Time

All the Chevrolet Volts on the road have just cumulatively reached the symbolic milestone of 100 million miles driven. Of those miles the median is 79.9% driven in electric-only mode, and the rest used the gasoline range extender engine.

Based on GM’s official production numbers, 35,000 Volt/Amperas have been manufactured since November 2010, with approximately 25,000 of them in hands of customers and another 10,000 either in transit toward various dealerships around the world or on dealers’ lots.

All Voltec cars – whether they are called Volt or Ampera – are built in in Michigan at the Detroit-Hamtramck plant. General Motor’s Chevrolet division publishes the cumulative miles covered by its Volts around the world on the Volt’s official Web page.
