With my Volt I regularly got into the mid 40's on electric only power, which isn't uncommon, I'm no super-eco-driver (not like some Volt Owner's who have achieved mid 50's sometimes)!

With the ELR, I have been able to get 42 electric miles... what's your best? Did you beat me?! I promise you won't hurt my feelings, you'll inspire me to try harder!

42-44 miles without any trouble is what I saw someone post in a comment underneath an ELR article.

In my 2012 Volt, I typically get 34-39 miles per charge, using between 9.6 and 10.3 kWh of the battery.

The two times I've driven the ELR from home to work, I got 33 miles and 37 miles before the battery ran out. Hopefully that's just because of the cold weather! (At 33 miles, the kWh used was 12.0, while at 37 miles, the kWh used was 12.3)

I got 46 miles before switching to gasoline power, so I'm pretty sure your low and mid 30 ranges will increase with less severe weather!

Glad to see people getting higher than the advertised 37 mile electric range without having to try too hard!

Today I used 12.5 kWh of the battery without the ELR switching to Extended Range mode. That's the most battery I've used yet. Unfortunately, due to a lot of highway driving, I only got 33 miles on that drive.
