A German film crew from auto mobil, a television show that runs on the VOX channel, wanted to find out how far they could drive in a stock Opel Ampera-E — known to people in North America as the Chevy Bolt — on a single battery charge. So they got their hands on one, charged it up, and set off in hot pursuit of the world record for hypermiling the all electric car.
Their route took them from Görlitz, Germany to Aachen, a drive that normally takes about 6 hours and 45 minutes by car. When they were done, they had driven a total of 754.9 kilometers before running out of battery power, which works out to 469 miles. This from a car with an EPA estimated range of 238 miles
