2013 Chevrolet Volt Gets Extra Electric Mode Range

Chevrolet has announced that the 2013 Volt has gained a few extra miles in pure electric motor driving range. The 2013 model is able to travel 38 miles on electric power alone, which is a gain of a scant 3 miles from the 2012 model. The 13 Volt also gets an increase in the MPGe rating for 94 miles to 98 miles.

The full extended range of the vehicle using the gasoline generator is 380 miles. Chevrolet says gains were made by tweaking the composition of the battery pack and slightly increasing the amount of energy the battery pack can store. These changes do increase the charge time slightly with a full recharge on 120 V outlet needing 10.5 hours at 240 V charging unit doing the deed in 4.25 hours.

But, to the surprise of many, PEVs did considerably well. According to a report issued by the Electrification Coalition, in the 30 months between 2011 and 2013, PEVs sold more than twice the number of units conventional hybrid vehicles did in the first 3 ...
