Chevrolet announced that Volt owners have collectively driven more than 100 million all-electric miles since the plug-in hybrid went on sale two years ago. Chevy said that on average, Volt owners travel more than 65 percent on pure electric-power and only end up using gas for longer trips.

“The best sign of a great product is when your customers are the most satisfied in the industry,” said Cristi Landy, Chevrolet Volt marketing director. “Volt owners have found the Volt is not only fun to drive, but provides technology and performance where consumers need it most.”
According to GM, by charging their Volt regularly, owners drive around 900 miles or a month and a half between filling up gas.
The 5 million gallons of gasoline saved is equal to $21 million in gas costs based $4 per gallon of premium, or more than two supertankers of gas.
