According to to the automaker in addition to the 100,000 milestone, Volt owners have driven almost 1.5 billion miles in EV mode of a total 2.5 billion cumulative miles, which means that Volt drivers have saved nearly 58 million gallons of fuel.

Chevy expects the average 2017 Volt driver who fully charges the car regularly to travel more than 1,000 miles between gas fill ups.
“The Chevrolet Volt delivers not just a fun driving experience behind the wheel, but has become the first vehicle with plug-in electrification technology to truly become mainstream,” said Steve Majoros, director of marketing, Chevrolet Cars and Crossovers. “Not only is the Volt a class-creator, it serves as the foundation of a Chevrolet electric family that will soon add the first long-range, affordable EV available to customers across the U.S., the Chevrolet Bolt EV.”
