The Chevrolet Volt, recognised for having the most satisfied owners, will soon come with another people pleaser: a lower price. The 2014 model will start at USD$34,995, including an $810 destination fee (excluding tax, title, license and dealer fees). If consumers include federal tax credits of up to $7,500, pricing could start at $27,495.
“The lower price and cost savings from driving on electricity provide Volt owners an unmatched balance of technology, capability and cost of ownership,” said Don Johnson, US vice president of Chevrolet sales and service. “We have made great strides in reducing costs as we gain experience with electric vehicles and their components.
“In fact, the Volt has seen an increase in battery range and the addition of creature comforts since its launch in 2010.”
