Can you please share where you found this information? It's actually a lot more than I have been seeing on various review web sites.

You should probably take EPA and CARB testing with a grain of salt since it does not necessarily reflect real world driving. Here is a link to the CARB testing showing the mileage that mentioned.

Actually the EPA rating for electric only on our 2017 Chevy Volt is spot on. Just sayin'.

The EPA rating procedure has evolved to represent the 'average' user...few will match that average. It was designed to be a stable reference point, sort of like the tire wear indicator. Your results may differ!

OTOH, the Euro cycle is more of an ideal rating that few people will achieve, but, is still a valid reference point between vehicles.

My commute to work and back is 20 miles and my commute to town and back is 14, so even 30 miles of range will satisfy my needs nicely. I will be setting up a charger at work (I own a manufacturing business) as well as my home, so I should have a charged battery ‘most’ of the time that I will need it.

And here I always thought I was "above average"

We've had a 2013 and a 2017 Chevy Volt and our electric range only has always been right in the ballpark of the EPA estimates. And that was over the course of 70k miles between the 2 vehicles. At least for me the EPA estimates are spot on.

FWIW, I usually beat the EPA estimates for the vehicles I have bought - sometimes by more than 10%. That doesn't mean that I drive slowly (the tests assume certain speeds and acceleration rates), but I like to think I drive smoothly and try to coast to a red light rather than rely on the brakes for most of it...I'll hurry up on the open road when safe and stay with traffic in the city. I don't feel like I have to always be the first one across the intersection from a stop.

Way back when, during driver's ed, the instructor placed an empty glass milk bottle on the floor. Each time you knocked it over, you lost 5-points for the day. It was a challenge to start, stop and turn without knocking it over, and it's interesting to find out that you can go pretty quickly while doing it successfully, but it takes some practice. There's a time and place for more aggressive actions, but you still have to play nice with others!
