One of the most important cars in GM’s history, the electric Chevrolet Volt reached its second-generation in January, when it was unveiled during NAIAS Detroit.
Now, the all-new Volt is already for sale in United States with a starting price of $26,495 after the full federal tax credit of $7,500. In California, some residents will be able to buy the car even with only $24,995 after state and federal incentives.
Without the help of the US incentives, the new Volt starts at $33,995 MSRP, including an $825 destination fee, which is almost $1,200 less than the current-generation Volt.
The Volt continues to be a success with the brand, with nearly 70 percent of Volt owners trading in a non-GM product or adding 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.
The new Volt will offer a GM-estimated 50 miles of all-electric driving range on a single charge, a 31-percent improvement over the first-generation Volt.
