As the Chevrolet Volt enters its second generation, the vehicle still remains a great answer to those seeking an electric vehicle without succumbing to range anxiety. That’s because the 2016 Chevrolet Volt and its 1.5-liter four-cylinder “generator” is ready to take things over once the battery is depleted.
Today, we present to you The Fast Lane Car’s most impressive highway loop efficiency test. The 2016 Chevrolet Volt was able to muster out 68.24 MPG in the test, using less than two gallons of 87 octane. Now, we understand the number can be a little of context, since the first portion of mileage was done in only electric mode, compared to a hybrid which uses both a gasoline and electric propulsion simultaneously, but the results are still mighty impressive.
After all, most owners are looking to minimize fuel consumption, right? Right.
Chevrolet previously stated 53 miles of pure electric driving, but those would be under perfect driving conditions. And no driving condition is perfect. But, we digress. 68 MPG is one hell of a number. Check out the video for yourself up above.
