The 2014 Volt model will start at $34,995
DETROIT – The Chevrolet Volt, already recognized for having the most satisfied owners will soon come with another people pleaser: a lower price. The 2014 model will start at $34,995, including an $810 destination fee (excluding tax, title, license and dealer fees).
If consumers include federal tax credits ranging from $0-$7,500 (depending on individual tax liability), pricing could start at $27,495. Individual tax situations differ, so consult a tax professional prior to claiming any credits to confirm eligibility for vehicle tax benefits.
“The lower price and cost savings from driving on electricity provide Volt owners an unmatched balance of technology, capability and cost of ownership. “The 2014 Volt will offer the same impressive list of features, but for $5,000 less.
“Chevrolet 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.”
Volt owners who charge regularly typically drive 900 miles between fill-ups and visit the gas
station about once a month. The 2014 Volt will continue to provide owners with impressive fuel
economy of 98 MPGe (electric) and 35 city/40 highway on gasoline power without any need to
change their daily driving habits while saving $900 in annual fuel costs. Today’s Volt owners
have logged 364 million miles, including 225 million electric miles.
The Volt’s lower price also changes the comparative set of vehicles on popular auto information
sites like kbb.com, Edmunds.com and cars.com, where visitors to these sites can search for a
new vehicle by type and/or prices. The Volt’s lower price will broaden its exposure to price sensitive prospective buyers using these sites to search for a plug-in electric vehicle or a gas powered alternative sedan.
The Volt continues to be the best selling plug-in vehicle in America and is attracting new buyers
to the Chevrolet brand. More than 70 percent of Volt buyers are new to General Motors. Not
surprisingly, the Toyota Prius is the most frequently traded-in vehicle for a Volt.
California continues to be Volt’s largest market. The 2014 Volt will continue to offer a low
emissions package that earns the Volt a coveted “sticker” for single-occupancy HOV lane
access in California and New York.
The Chevrolet Volt allows gas-free driving for an EPA-estimated 38 miles (61 km), depending
on terrain, driving techniques and temperature. The range-extending engine gives the Volt up to
380 total miles (615 km) of total driving range. The 2014 Volt will start to be available in dealer
showrooms. Chevrolet will introduce two new colors – Ashen Gray Metallic and Brownstowne
Metallic for the 2014 model year – and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.
