Chevrolet Volt has been one of the well accepted hybrid cars in the market for various reasons and the 2014 model will have one more, respectable reason added to the list. As per the latest information, the 2014 Chevrolet Volt will bear a lower price tag than the outgoing version and this is certainly a great bit of news for potential buyers.
The 2014 Chevrolet Volt will be priced from $34,995, including an $810 destination fee (excluding tax, title, license and dealer fees). For customers getting federal tax credits ranging from $0-$7,500 (depending on individual tax liability), the pricing could go as low as $27,495.
“The lower price and cost savings from driving on electricity provide Volt owners an unmatched balance of technology, capability and cost of ownership,” said Don Johnson, U.S. vice president, Chevrolet sales and service. “The 2014 Volt will offer the same impressive list of features, but for $5,000 less.
“We have made great strides in reducing costs as we gain experience with electric vehicles and their components,” Johnson said. “In fact, the Volt has seen an increase in battery range and the addition of creature comforts, such as a leather-wrapped steering wheel and MyLink, since its launch in 2010.”
The 2014, just like its predecessor, will continue to offer impressive fuel economy of 98 MPGe (electric) and 35 city/40 highway on gasoline, while saving up to $900 of fuel costs annually. With the lowered price tag the car will be able to appeal to even those price sensitive prospective buyers who earlier were reluctant to get the Volt.
The Volt is really important for General Motors as it is the best selling plug-in vehicle in America and is also the reason for new buyers. GM says that as much as 70 percent of the Bolt buyers are new to the brand and that is indeed an achievement.
The Volt offers an EPA estimated 38 miles of range depending on how a person drives and the temperature. The range extending engine gives the Volt a total driving range of up to 380 miles.
The 2014 Volt will reach the dealer showrooms late this summer and will arrive in two new colors – Ashen Gray Metallic and Brownstowne Metallic.
