2011 Chevrolet Volt has achieved 126.7mpg
Chevrolet Volt achieved an impressive result of 127 mpg, which is 1.85 liters per 100 km. Motor Trend blogger Jonny Lieberman tried to overestimate the result, which is actually 126.7mpg, but who cares, still it is superb.
During the test, Chevy Volt used just 2.36 gallons of fuel on the 299 miles (481km) road trip. The journey started in southern California, on highways through the desert and mountain roads with changes in elevation, the Volt averaged 74.6 miles per gallon (3.1 liters/100 km) over 122 miles (196 km).
Chevy Volt suffered a huge criticism, because of the ridiculous statements of GM. Firstly, they claimed that the car will go with only 1 liter per 100km (230mpg), which is close to a science fiction. After that, Volt was named an EV (electric vehicle), but in fact it is a plug-in hybrid since the gasoline engine it carries turns on to help with acceleration.
However, still Chevrolet Volt is a great car and it will go on sale the next month, so stay tuned.
