GM Chairman and CEO Rick Wagoner told the Frankfurter Allgemeine that the company wants to bring the Volt to market in 2010 priced at less than $30,000.
“GM has a very clear goal: We want to bring the Volt to market in 2010 at a price of less than 30,000 US dollars,” said GM CEO Rick Wagnoner to the Frnakfurther Allgemeine Zeitung.
The interview suggests the potential of a slightly earlier introduction of the vehicle; GM so far has been targeting November 2010 as the introduction date.
The two remaining challenges, said Wagoner, were the cost of the battery and convincing consumers of the value proposition.
