DURAND, Mich.– Are you still a skeptic when it comes to electric vehicle technology? We understand your apprehension about the dependability of an electric system as opposed to sticking with the traditional gasoline engine, but the 2016 Chevrolet Volt achieves impressive fuel economy that could change your mind.

Here’s why you should love the Volt: You can drive it 53 miles on pure electricity, up 15 miles from the current Volt, but even more convincing is the Volt achieves 106 miles per gallon electric when you combine the electric drive modes and gasoline operation. On top of that, you get 42 mpg without using the electric drive modes, so either way you’re getting amazing gas mileage.

Right now, Volt owners drive on the vehicle's battery 80 percent of the time. Chevrolet expects that number to increase to 90 percent with the 2016 Volt, and projects it will be capable of traveling 1,000 miles before needing a gas fill-up.

Those are some hefty claims, but the new Volt’s 246-pound weight loss and a new, more efficient 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine definitely play into the improved mpg specifications. Comparatively, the new Volt gets 106 mpg combined to the current Volt’s 37 mpg combined­ –– that’s a serious upgrade.

The caveat is you’ll end up paying $33,995 for the new Volt, which is more than the current model. However, it seems completely worth it when the 2016 Chevrolet Volt achieves impressive fuel economy, plus the price really isn’t too steep considering how much other comparable sedans cost.
