82 miles is the "estimate", with a typical american driver in a metro area. With the Volt and Leaf most enthusiasts are reporting more range than what the epa is stating for these cars.

The same is true for their new car window sticker ratings, and I don't think I've owned a car or truck yet that didn't do 20% or better than the window sticker.

Oh, and don't forget that EV's have no problem getting off the line with the all that torque. And snappy throttle response quite literally almost at the speed of light. (No really, electrons have nearly 0 mass and thus the biggest thing slowing them down is the resistance of the circuit they travel in.)
