My Volt Traveled 466 Electric km (289 miles) in 24 Hours
I’m a proud 2012 Chevrolet Volt owner since March 2012. I’ve always been a VoltStats.net Chevrolet Volt owner member. On September 2012, VoltStats.net created the Hall of Fame on it s Achievements section. Since that day, I’ve wanted to try the challenge of being in the top ten Volt owner in VoltStats.net’s Achievements, Electric Miles Driven in a Day.
Sunday July 13, 2014 was a perfect timing for me and outside temperature. Without planning a route in particular, I started my 24 hour journey. I never drove beyond 60 km/h (37.3 mph).
My 1st ride was to find a circuit that I could travel without using any gas at all. I started with 35 km (21.75 miles) and turned around. As I got close to my place, I noticed I still had 15 km (9.3 miles) of battery range. I chose to keep going. My 1st ride was 90.1 km (56 miles). I was surprised and happy that my 2012 Volt still had full battery capacity range.
While recharging, I decided to complete the other rides on a 60 km (37.28 miles) route. The information I took after each rides reveal interesting information about my Volt’s electric range. Feel free to comment !
