Jay Leno Puts 10,000 Miles on His Volt
America's favorite and funniest car buff JAY LENO surprised automotive enthusiasts gathered at the LA Auto Show when he drove his Chevy Volt on stage to celebrate 10,000 miles on the electric grid. Jay has yet to use the original tank of gas from when he bought the vehicle last year!
My Chevy Volt test drive
Or, at least, this is part of the test drive. I drove a few more laps after this where I got a bit more aggressive with the driving. I'll do a blog post about this later. Very nice car, I want one. The car is electric. No gas drives the wheels. Gas engine only comes on to generate electricity to power the 400 pounds of batteries in the car. The Volt ships later this year in a limited number of cities and pricing has not been announced yet.
2016 Chevy Volt Review - Can It Go 53 Electric Miles?
2016 Chevy Volt Review - Can It Go 53 Electric Miles? The second generation Chevy Volt features a larger battery and greater efficiency, yielding an all electric range of 53 miles before the engine has to kick on. Under the hood is a 1.5L I4 gasoline engine, which is used purely as a generator, and a 111 kW two-motor system is responsible for driving the front wheels. An 18.4 kW battery on board stores the electric juice. The question is, can the 2016 Volt make it 53 miles without the engine coming on? I put it to the test to find out! MSRP As Tested: $40,225 And don't forget to check out my other pages below!
