Ever since the all-new 2016 Chevrolet Volt was revealed just ahead of the 2015 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, we’ve been eagerly waiting for its arrival. After all, surpassing the superb flexibility and everyday-ability of the first-generation car’s fuel-extended electric powertrain is no small task, and yet we were presented a car that looks quite up to the task – and then some.
Now, thanks to an official table for dealers, leaked by the good folks over at Inside EVs, we have a much better idea of when to expect GM’s venerable new PHEV.
From the looks of things, the 2016 Chevrolet Volt will be hitting most of the CARB-compliant states first. Orders for the new Volt can be placed in California as early as May 28th, with production to fill these early California orders not beginning until this August. On the 27th of August, ten more CARB-compliant states will be allowed to submit orders, with production to fill those not scheduled to begin until early October. Those other early launch states are: Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maryland, Maine, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, and Vermont.
If you don’t live in one of the eleven early launch states, orders will begin on October 1st, with production beginning later in the month. But, rather needless to say, you’ll likely be somewhere near the back of a lengthy queue by then; we wouldn’t be surprised if national deliveries didn’t start until early 2016.
