Now the fellows at TFL have decided to check out what that means in the "real world" on the highway.
Specifically this means driving on their standard test/100 mile highway driving loop, while travelling at 75mph. (We should note that a full 75 mph test run is more aggressive than standard EPA testing protocols)
Bold predictions before taking off? The 2016 Volt will post a big number ... perhaps the biggest number tested to date by the outfit.
Editor's Note: The testing duo continually mention that neither GM, nor the EPA has disclosed the range ratings for the 2016 Volt on the highway in all electric mode, or the MPGe/MPG of the car in extended range (gas) mode on the highway.
We took a moment to check the data files ourselves, and those numbers are available...but just not out in the open:
2016 Chevrolet Volt Electric Range - From Left To Right: City, Highway, Combined
2016 Chevrolet Volt Petrol MPG - From Left To Right: City, Highway, Combined
2016 Volt Blended MPGe (bottom row): From Left To Right: City, Highway, Combined
Hat tip to offib!
