The tally of electric-only miles accumulated by Chevrolet Volt owners surpassed the 400,000,000 (that’s 400 million) mile mark yesterday, equivalent to walking the Great Wall of China 30,000 times, according to General Motors.
Total miles driven by Volt owners have topped 640,000,000, with the EREV saving about 21 million gallons of gasoline. The money saved by fuel-conscious Volt owners on gasoline is enough to buy 159 acres of a private island.
According to Volt driver stats, a driver (appropriately named) The Most Driven Volt has accumulated 56,500 EV miles, while user Voltdriver has run their Volt almost exclusively on electricity, accumulating 40,827 EV miles out of 42,755 total miles.
How does the Volt compare to the competition? According to Clean Technica, the Nissan Leaf electric car has covered about 420 million (all-electric) miles, while Tesla owner Elon Musk estimates that all owners of the Tesla Roadster and Model S have driven 250 million (all-electric) miles.
