Remember that the EPA test is also done in standard performance mode, click the economy mode and the programing of the controller makes it harder to drive harshly.
The Volt is also not meeting it's claimed 237mpg number or 40 mile battery range either.
Why they didn't underestimate the numbers baffles me a bit, tell the public that their car will have a 80 mile range then give it a 100 mile pack.
