The 2016 Chevrolet Volt is a certainty now, Chevrolet already published official pricing for the hybrid and the retooling process for the new Volt is almost complete. But how about the first-gen Volt?
As it often happens in the automotive world, old models tend to become neglected when new ones are set to arrive and take their place. This translates into a lot of cars left unsold, which is not ideal for the manufacturer, but might be good for customers.

So, those interested in buying a 2015 Chevrolet Volt could have an interesting opportunity right in front of them. According to the Detroit Free Press, Chevrolet dealers had about 6,000 unsold 2015MY Volts at the end of April.

What does that mean for the buyer? Well, let's do some math, shall we? The 2015 Volt is sold for $35,000, without considering the $7,500 federal tax credit. However, the sticker for the 2015 Volt has been dropping to a little over $30,000, according to the same source, before the above-mentioned federal tax credit.

However, Volt owners are known for their leasing preference, but Chevrolet has that covered as well. The car maker is offering a 39-month lease at $299 per month and $1,649 due at signing, but if that's not good enough for you, there's always the possibility of buying a pre-owned 2015 Volt.

Coming back to the new 2016 Chevrolet Volt, you should know that California dealers will get it first, for as low as $24,995 after state and federal incentives.

Otherwise, the hybrid wears a price tag of $33,995 MSRP, including an $825 destination fee, but without considering tax, title, license and dealer fees. Besides being $1,200 cheaper than the 2015 Volt, the 2016MY can reach $26,495 after the full federal tax credit of $7,500.

The Volt PHEV will go on sale in the second half of 2015, which means it won't be long before we see Chevrolet's hybrid roaming the streets, especially those in California where the demand is the strongest in the US.
