The 2016 Chevrolet Volt is just starting to release for sale in various specific areas of the United States, but reports indicate that presently it is being discounted. The limited number of regions where the 2016 Chevrolet Volt will launch will come with cash incentive options which the potential buyers can enjoy.
The second generation Volt won’t be seen by many states until next year when it is released nationwide as a 2017 model. Shoppers in various locations can avail a $1000 shopper’s bonus on the 2016 Chevrolet Volt through November 2.
It is known as the Volt Incremental Consumer Cash Program and the incentive will be available in various places like Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, California, Maine, Oregon, Rhode Island, New York, and also Vermont.
These will be the only states where the 2016 Chevrolet Volt is released until the production of the 2017 Volt model starts this spring. Keep in mind that the purchase bonus cannot be combined with that of lease rates and promotional financing.
However, reports indicate that it can be used with a $500 ‘conquest’ incentive which is primarily aimed at attracting the non-GM motors consumers.
At the same time, GM will continue to offer heavy discounts on the 2015 Chevy Volt. The first generation model of the Chevrolet Volt will get $2500 in incentives up to 2nd November.
People who own a 2011 or newer Volt will receive a $2500 as loyalty bonus in case they switch to a newer or another Chevy. The offer will be applied to 16 different models this October, but the 2016 Volt is not included in it.
However, on a bizarre turn of events, it can further be applied to most Chevy SUVs and trucks, the Camaro, Silverado, Colorado, Tahoe and the Suburban. According to CarDirect, this program has been schemed in order to keep the current Chevy owners across various states, which are yet to receive the 2016 Volt, from switching brands.
The 2016 Chevrolet Volt boasts a range of 53 miles per charge while coming with a starting price of $33,170. This is quite far from being the cheapest car in town but at least it is a lot better, cleaner and efficient than the fuel-guzzler you’ve been using all these days.
This car is poised to go up against various rivals like the Prius Hybrid and the Nissan Leaf. The 2016 Chevrolet Volt will include a lot of features which are found in the Tesla Model S and that’s saying something since Tesla clearly produces premium electric cars.
However, don’t expect the ‘Ludicrous Mode’ to be included but expect changes on a lot of specific areas. It has been 8 years since the Volt was released and it has undergone a large number of awesome changes.
The Volt now has a 1.5-liter I-4 engine which comes with 12.5:1 compression, exhausts gas recirculation and also features direct injection as well, along with cam phasing. The vehicle can develop a maximum torque of 5600 rpm.
Keep in mind that the 4-door sedan is not designed for speed even though looks can be deceiving. Instead, it is more optimized for space.
Reports indicate that it will come with a lithium-ion formula in its batteries and compared to the ones in the predecessor, it will be 20% more efficient and 30 pounds lighter at the same time. On a full charge and full tank of gas, the 2016 Chevrolet Volt can run up to 420 miles.
