General Motors Canada announced that the 2016 Chevrolet Volt will start at $38,390 MSRP, plus a $1,600 destination freight charge.
The pricing for the 2016 Volt model will be as low as $29,890 after the full provincial incentive of $8,500 (Ontario). Provincial incentives in Canada range from $0 up to $8,500. In response to Canadian Volt owner input, the next generation car will feature unique content that is packaged to optimize the all-electric driving range.
The 2016 Chevrolet Volt pricing will deliver new standard equipment that includes:
– Location-Based Charging
– Rear Vision Camera
– LED low-beam headlamps
– 10 Airbags
Current Volt owners have found heated seats and steering wheels to be a comfortable alternative to using the full HVAC system, allowing increased electric range during Canada’s winter months. For 2016, the base Volt model in Canada will be standardly equipped with the following cold weather features:
– Heated Seats
– Heated Steering Wheel
– Heated Outside Rearview Mirrors
“The next generation Chevrolet Volt delivers more technology, significantly increased EV range and even more refinement. It’s what our loyal Volt owners told us they wanted,” said Bob McClelland, brand director, Chevrolet in Canada. “With a lower starting price, unique Canadian content and more standard equipment, the Volt will deliver exceptional value and attract new customers.”
The Volt continues to be a success for 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 kilometres.
The 2016 Chevrolet Volt will offer a GM estimated 80 kilometres (50 miles) of all-electric driving range on a single charge, a 31-percent improvement over the first-generation Volt. This means that new Volt owners should anticipate that approximately 90 percent of trips in a new Volt will be driven all-electrically.
Additionally, the 33 litre (8.9 gal.) fuel tank and an estimated combined fuel consumption rating of 5.7 L/100km (41 mpg) ensure that the Volt can travel farther on gasoline when needed. The current-generation Chevrolet Volt has been Canada’s best-selling plug-in vehicle for 4 consecutive years, based on CVMA and IHS Sales registrations.
