2014 Chevrolet Volt, which allows gas-free driving for an EPA-estimated 38 miles, will start at $34,995, (including an $810 destination fee), $5,000 less than the previous model. With federal tax credits ranging from $0-$7,500 (depending on individual tax liability), pricing could start at $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 Volt will start to be available in dealer showrooms late this summer and in two new colors – Ashen Gray Metallic and Brownstowne Metallic for the 2014 model year – and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.
