Chevrolet Dealers in Launch Markets are Taking Reservations
After years of waiting, we finally know how much the Chevy Volt plug-in hybrid will be sold for: The Volt's MSRP will start at $41,000 ($33,500 net of the full federal tax credit, which ranges from $0-$7,500) including a destination freight charge of $720. GM will also be offering a lease option with monthly payments of about $350 for 36 months, with $2,500 down. Read on for more details.
The Volt will be initially available to Chevrolet customers in California, New York, Michigan, Connecticut, Texas, New Jersey and the Washington D.C. area. To be among the first to purchase a Volt, customers can visit their nearest participating Chevrolet Volt dealer. A Volt dealer locator will be available later today at http://www.getmyvolt.com. The dealer will begin the order process, which will be followed up by contact from a dedicated Volt advisor who will be available to answer any questions and keep the customer apprised of the progress of their order. For customers needing general Volt information, Chevrolet will have a team of Volt advisors available to answer questions starting today at 1-888-VOLT-4-YOU (1-888-865-8496).
The Volt comes with a 120-volt charge cord, but about 4,400 Volt buyers will be eligible to get a free 240-volt charging station and home installation as part of a Department of Energy program.
As was recently announced, the Volt's battery pack will be covered by a 8-year/100k-miles warranty.
