Yes, you’ve read that right. Ari’s Volt has operated in electric-only mode for 99.9% of its life. That’s an amazing achievement, but it doesn’t come easy.
Ari is very careful to assure that his car used gas as seldom as possible and that’s apparent in the screen readout below.
We’d like to congratulate Ari for his tremendous achievement and for his dedication to driving electric!
