Chevrolet Volt will get 230 MPG (city)
Although the Volt isn't a subcompact, this news should be shared.
GM just announced that its upcoming, highly anticipated Volt electric car will get a mind-boggling 230 MPG city from the EPA. Just recently, the EPA came up with a way to measure economy that allows people to compare an electric vehicle to a gas or gas/hybrid vehicle with regards to economy.
Keep in mind, the Volt will have a gasoline engine, but it will not be driving the wheels. It will be, essentially, acting as a generator to recharge the batteries.
