GM announced today that dealers in all 50 states can take orders for the 2012 Chevrolet Volt, which will come in a model priced at $39,995 (including delivery) or about $1,000 less than the 2011 price.
For 2012 Chevrolet Volt, consumers will be able to choose from a total of seven option packages compared with only three for the 2011 model. A loaded Volt, with leather appointments, backup camera, navigation system and premium paint and wheels can now cost as much as $46,265 including delivery.
Buyers can benefit from a federal tax credit of $7,500 for plug-in vehicles.
“We are giving consumers greater choice of content as the Volt becomes available nationwide by the end of this year,” said Cristi Landy, Volt marketing director. “This gives us the opportunity to be more flexible in our pricing and still provide additional high-tech content to customers who want to purchase it.”
The 2012 Volt will be available in two additional interior accents (white and spiced red) and two new exterior colors (Summit White and Blue Topaz Metallic).
New features for 2012 include:
• Standard keyless access with passive locking; the car automatically locks and unlocks with the key fob in close proximity of vehicle
• OnStar Turn by Turn navigation standard for three years, and available in-dash navigation system
• Chevrolet MyLink including Bluetooth streaming audio for music and select phones (late availability)
• Standard AM/FM stereo with CD player and MP3 playback and 7-inch diagonal color touch-screen display
• Available 17-inch sport alloy wheels with black inserts (late availability).
Chevrolet will continue to offer an eight-year/100,000-mile limited warranty on the Volt’s 16-kWh lithium-ion battery.
