Pricing for the 2016 Chverolet Volt (earlier post) will start at $33,995 MSRP, including an $825 destination fee (excluding tax, title, license and dealer fees). This is almost $1,200 less than the current-generation Volt.
Pricing will be as low as $26,495 after the full federal tax credit of $7,500. (Federal tax credit can range from $0 up to $7,500.) In California, the vehicle’s largest market, residents of the state will be able to purchase the all-new Volt for as low as $24,995 after state and federal incentives.
Nearly 70% of Volt owners traded in a non-GM product or added to their household fleet in 2014, the highest of any Chevy nameplate. The number one trade-in for the Volt is the Toyota Prius. To date, more than 75,000 first-generation Volt owners have driven hundreds of millions of EV miles.
Volt owners who charge regularly can expect to drive an estimated 1,000 miles or more between fill-ups, based on GM testing. The 2016 Volt will provide owners with fuel economy of a GM-estimated 102 MPGe (electric) and 41 combined mpg on gasoline power.
The new Volt will offer a GM-estimated 50 miles of all-electric driving range on a single charge, a 31% improvement over the first-generation Volt. This means new Volt owners should anticipate that approximately 90% of trips in a new Volt will be driven all-electrically.
