OMG! 2014 Volt comes with 43 mile range and 1 liter all aluminum engine?
Just read this in the Yahoo finance section under GM heading.
"General Motors will launch the 2014 Chevrolet Volt hybrid in the U.S. market by the end of August 2013. The 2014 Volt will provide buyers with an impressive fuel economy of 98 miles per gallon equivalent, or MPGe (electric) on battery power. Talking about its mileage on gasoline, it comes out to be 35 miles in the city and 40 miles on the highway. This amounts to savings of approximately $900 in annual fuel cost when compared to gasoline cost. This new model will come with a 1 liter three-cylinder engine, which is made entirely from aluminum and is 20% more fuel efficient than engines in the earlier models. Also with a drained battery, the new model boasts around 43 miles compared to 35 miles in the 2013 variant."
Is this just another case of sloppy reporting, or did Chevy pull a fast one on everyone?
