For 2012, 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 is priced at $46,265 including delivery ($38,765 net
of full tax credit).
“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 Volt will be available in two
additional interior accents (white and spiced red) and two new
exterior colors (Summit White and Blue Topaz Metallic).
Customers in all states can visit
their nearest participating Chevrolet Volt dealer today to order
a 2012 Volt. Once an order is placed, a dedicated Volt advisor
will be available to answer questions and keep the customer
apprised of the order progress. Nationwide availability will
initially be limited as deliveries will occur by phases.
Additionally, Chevrolet will have a team of Volt advisors
available to answer questions starting today at 1-888-VOLT-4-YOU
The Volt offers a total driving
range of up to 379 miles, based on EPA estimates. For the first
35 miles, the Volt can drive gas- and tailpipe-emissions free
using a full charge of electricity. When the Volt’s battery runs
low, a gas-powered engine/generator seamlessly operates to
extend the driving range another 344 miles on a full change.
Chevrolet expects to build up to 45,000 Volts for retail and
fleet customers in the United States during calendar year 2012.
