GM says Volt will get 93 mpg in electric mode
WASHINGTON (AP) - November 24, 2010 -- General Motors says its Chevrolet Volt will get the equivalent of 93 miles per gallon in combined city and highway driving while powered by electricity.
The automaker says the rechargeable electric car will get an estimated 37 mpg when running on its gasoline-powered generator.
The mileage figures will be on the Volt's window sticker. It's an estimate from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
Earlier in the week Nissan said its Leaf all-electric car would get an estimated 99 mpg in combined city and highway driving.
The Volt can go 25-50 miles on electricity, then a small electric motor kicks in to generate power for the car.
Both the Leaf and Volt go on sale within weeks.
