Four months later, we updated the Belmer story with a post on how his Volt was celebrating its second birthday with over 146,000 miles on the odometer.
Belmer is once again featured here for a world's first: 200,000 miles on a Chevy Volt.
First, some backstory:
Erick Belmer is the proud owner of a 2012 Volt,
As Belmer tells InsideEVs, the Volt was purchased on March 28, 2012. Since then, it’s seen a daily commute of 220 miles there and back, with a single longest trip of 430 miles in a day.
Oil changes come every 38,000 miles and tire rotations every 10,000 miles. That’s basically all the maintenance that’s been required on Belmer’s Volt.

Now onto Belmer's 200,000-mile achievement. Belmer drives too much, so getting in touch with him isn't exactly easy. However, Belmer has this to say of the condition of his Volt today:
"Volt is holding up flawlessly! No noticeable battery capacity loss. Used 9.7 kw because it's a 2012. I am so pleased with this vehicle!"
"The Volt was always my dream car! To get to drive it everyday is a dream come true! This car is Wonderfully engineered!">
Our congrats go out to Erick and to the General Motors crew responsible for the Chevy Volt.
