Production of the current first generation Chevrolet Volt will end in mid-May, and the second generation of the vehicle will begin to trickle into dealers late Fall. We already know all-about the improved engineering, economy and technology the 2016 Chevrolet Volt employs, but we still don’t know how much all of it will run.
According to Automotive News, pre-production 2016 Volts have begun assembly at the Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly, where the overall production process will be evaluated. That news combined with current production ending means we should hear word on official pricing sometime in April or May, so PHEV fans can start saving their monies for the latest in plug-in hybrids.
There’s not much we can do except speculate at this point, but we’ve previously reported the 2016 Chevrolet Volt will be a profitable venture for the brand. This could mean prices will stay about the same, as the cost of batteries and technology have come down over the last car’s life cycle, or we may see a price reduction for the base model.
We think a sweet-spot of $29,995 has a nice marketing ring to it, no? Great efficiency with even greater affordability. And that would leave ample room for the upcoming Chevrolet Bolt EV to sit at its targeted $35,000 price point.
Your guess is as goos as ours. Talk to us down below, what do you think the 2016 Chevrolet Volt should cost?
