Chevrolet Volt sales decreased 74 percent to 1,146 units in the second quarter of 2019. The results are unsurprising given Chevrolet’s historic struggle to sell more than one or two thousand units of the Volt per month during its lifecycle, resulting in its recent discontinuation. And now, in what could be an effort to move remaining Volt inventory, a new Chevrolet discount takes $3,000 off all 2019 Volt models.
Nationwide Chevrolet discount offers for the 2019 Volt in August 2019 are as follows:
- Purchase offer: $3,000 Customer Cash
- Lease offer: $379 per month for 36 months (does not apply to base model)
- $4,179 due at signing
- $3,679 due at signing for current lessees of 2014 MY or newer non-GM vehicles
- $0 security deposit
For reference, here are the 2019 Volt trim levels and their corresponding starting MSRPs:
- LT – $34,395
- Premier – $38,995
As such, the $3,000 Chevrolet discount lowers the starting price of the Volt LT to $31,395 and that of the Volt Premier to $35,995.

About Chevrolet Volt
The Chevrolet Volt is an extended-range electric vehicle (EREV).Â The first-generation model was introduced for the 2011 model year. It rode on a variant of theÂ GM Delta II platformÂ shared with the first-generation Chevrolet Cruze and Buick Verano (sold in Europe as the Opel/Vauxhall Astra J) and was powered by the first-generation Voltec propulsion system, consisting of a 5.5-foot, 435-pound (198.1 kg) T-shaped, 16-kWh lithium-ion battery packÂ that sendsÂ energy to an advanced 111-kW (149-hp) electric drive unit to propel the vehicle.
This delivered a pure electric driving range of between 25 and 50 miles, depending on terrain, driving techniques and temperature.Â When the battery energy is depleted, the Volt seamlessly transitions to extended-range mode. Power is inverted from a 1.4L 63 kW (84 horsepower) gasoline-powered onboard engine to the electric drive unit to provide up to 344 additional miles of range, for a total range of 379 miles. The first-generation modelÂ ended production for the 2015Â model year, at which point it was replaced by the current, second-generation model starting with the 2016 model year.
Riding on theÂ GM D2 platform,Â the second-generation Volt is powered by the second-generation Voltec electric drive system that consists of anÂ 18.4-kWh lithium-ion battery pack andÂ an EcotecÂ 1.5L gas-powered range extender that deliversÂ 53 miles of EV range and 420 miles total driving range.
TheÂ 2018 Chevy VoltÂ represents the thirdÂ model year of the second-generation Volt. It getsÂ three new colors, the replacement of leather for vinyl on the steering wheel and shift knob cover on the LT model (leather-wrapped versions are optional), and the introduction of a new optional Driver Confidence Package on the LT trim level that consists ofÂ Rear Park Assist,Â Rear Cross-Traffic AlertÂ andÂ Side Blind Zone Alert.
For the 2019 model year, the Volt receives several notable changes, including two new exterior colors, improvements to the interior in the form of new infotainment systems, better power seat adjusters, new patterns for cloth seat fabrics, and - perhaps most notably - a new 7.2 kW high-voltage charger.
Both generation of the Chevrolet Volt have beenÂ built exclusively at theÂ GM Detroit-Hamtramck factoryÂ operated byÂ GM USA.Â Starting in 2017, theÂ second-generation model is sold in China as theÂ Buick Velite 5.
Industry rumblings have suggested that theÂ Volt willÂ exit productionÂ in 2022Â and be replaced by a crossover utility vehicle with the Voltec powertrain. Then, in November 2018,Â GM announced plans toÂ discontinue the Volt and shutter the Detroit-Hamtramck plant where it is built.
