First 20,000 Miles
It was a Red Letter Day yesterday when the Chevy Volt's odometer turned 20,000 miles yesterday on the way back from Sunday brunch, a drive that is about 40 miles round trip.
Most of the trip was made running in EV (electric vehicle) mode. The trip down the shoreline to Mary's Diner in Port Sanilac is pretty much straight, flat driving, so I can't pick up much regen charge. The Volt hit the 20,000 mark while it was running on electric. Smart car.
My Volt is still the only PEV in Huron County that's regularly running the county's roads and highways. Like I keep saying, it's a great car.
