2011 Chevrolet Volt Priced at $41,000

As announced ever since yesterday, American manufacturer GM revealed today the pricing for its first plug-in hybrid electric vehicle, the Chevrolet Volt. GM will charge for the Volt a bit more than expected, $41,000, or $33,500 net of full federal income tax credit.

But that's not the really hot news. The American manufacturer will lease the Volt for as low as $350 for 36 months and a down payment of only $2,500. The vehicle will be available at first, as already announced, in California, New York, Michigan, Connecticut, Texas, New Jersey and the Washington D.C.

The order books for the Volt are now open, with additional information available at the following link. GM will deliver the Volt together with a 120-volt charge cord and the possibility for you to be one of the 4,400 buyers to receive a free 240-volt charging station, including home installation. Future owners will also be assisted by phone or Internet 24/7.

The vehicle and its components are covered by the following warranties:

  • 3-year / 36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper coverage
  • 5-year / 100,000-mile roadside assistance and courtesy transportation
  • 5-year/100,000-mile limited gas engine coverage
  • 6-year/100,000-mile corrosion protection coverage
  • 8-year/100,000 miles battery warranty

“We wanted to make the Volt ownership experience unlike anything we’ve done at Chevrolet, because the Volt is unlike any vehicle we’ve offered,” Tony DiSalle, Chevrolet Volt product marketing director said when announcing the price.

“We want customers to fully enjoy the Volt lifestyle by providing unprecedented connectivity to their vehicle through the Volt mobile app.”

Now that all this info has been made public, we only have one thing left to say: your move, Nissan!
