Even though the first-generation Chevrolet Volt was a remarkable piece of engineering, it never became the smash hit Chevrolet, and General Motors, wanted it to be. As the first-generation continues to fizzle out of the limelight, steep discounts have been applied for motivation.
But, incentives have already begun for the 2016 Chevrolet Volt, according to Autoblog. Although the 2016 Volt won’t be a nationwide product until 2016, Chevrolet will offer up to $1,000 in incentives in the states where the 2016 Volt shows up first. Those states are California, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maryland, Maine, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island and Vermont.
Buyers may also earn an additional $500 discount by recommending a non-GM vehicle owner to purchase a 2016 Volt. And, of course, there’s the hefty $7,500 tax credit from Uncle Sam.
The 2016 Chevrolet Volt actually starts at a lower MSRP this time around, dipping from $34,170 to $33,995, and can travel 15 miles more than the outgoing car on pure electricity.
