August 11, 2009, By Atul Roach

The Chevrolet Volt is not a surprising name to a majority of people reading this, as everybody realizes that this is General Motors Flagship Commuter when talking about green technology. What though is surprising is that the plug-in hybrid electric vehicle has managed to register an astounding 230MPG city rating, becoming the first car to achieve a three figure MPG rating.

So how is that you react to this piece of information-tell the world to chuck all it drives into a junkyard-and admire nothing but the Volt.

I suggest that you better not get carried away for that three-figure magic is a courtesy of a new EPA methodology for determining a draft fuel economy standard for extended-range EVs like the Chevrolet Volt.

Once you have that excitement subdued, what you will also like to know is that the November Shipping date (slated for the car long time back) isn’t quite final as yet. To try those 230MPGs first-hand, you might just have to wait for an year more. [Via: Engadget]
