I'm terrible about writing headlines, but basically if there are 6000 Volts on the road... they would save the US from 1,300,000 gallons of refined Premium fuel in a given year.
Granted this is just a wild guess... but still exciting nonetheless when we consider that 6,000 will quickly turn into 60,000 over the next 12 months.
- fleet averages 70% driving in EV mode
- typical volt drivers use their cars similar to voltstats.com drivers
- 70% is also a yearly average... better range in spring/fall but more road trips
- grid power isn't source from oil burning power plant
This could be a good billboard for Chevy. A solar powered counter estimating the fuel savings from the entire fleet of Volts out there!
I am excited for the future of our automotive industry!!
