City Mileage: Honda Civic Hybrid 40 MPG…Toyota Prius 48 MPG…Chevrolet Volt 230 MPG!

Today General Motors announced that the Chevrolet Volt is expected to achieve 230 MPG in the city.

The Chevrolet Volt extended-range electric vehicle is expected to achieve city fuel economy of at least 230 miles per gallon, based on development testing using a draft EPA federal fuel economy methodology for labeling for plug-in electric vehicles.

The Volt, which is scheduled to start production in late 2010 as a 2011 model, is expected to travel up to 40 miles on electricity from a single battery charge and be able to extend its overall range to more than 300 miles with its flex fuel-powered engine-generator.
