Hello Volt owners, can you please help a RFD brother out?

My family member is looking for a Volt and was quoted a Cash price of $31,549 Taxes Included (Incentive $15,000) on a 2018 Volt LT

Is this a good deal or can he do lower? Thanks!
If the quote is for a Volt LT with no options, it is basically $300 off MSRP. Also the Ontario government incentive is $14,000 on the purchase of the car. There is an additional $1000 for the purchase and install of a level 2 charger.

With high demand and low supply, that is about the best you can do at this time.

So, I commented much earlier about my 2012 Volt. I just replaced it with a 2018 Volt. They gave me a good trade-in and the gov't tossed in another $14K. I decided on a 3-year lease instead of sinking my own cash into a depreciating asset.

Bottom line: I moved up 6 model years for only $7K (over 3 years).

Why? Nothing wrong with my 2012 except it needed new tires after 73,000 KM. A/C and steering probably need work soon.

As to range, I was getting 70KM on the 2012 and with the bigger battery, I get 100K on the 2018.

So far, so good

Are you saying you got roughly $23k trade in value on a 2012? Wow. Mine has 156k on it... maybe I could get close to $20k :) what dealer should I go to? haha.
Edit: nm, didn't catch the lease on first read :)

No. Other than the Ontario government rebate, the only other incentive/rebate available at the moment is a $500 visa bonus amount. 3ajs had a number of other GM incentives/rebates available to him at the time. Plus his monthly payment included a $2500 trade in. Without the trade he would have been paying about $360/mth. A similar Volt LT would lease for about $450/mth right now ($0 down, no trade).

Thanks OP and everyone here for the discussion here on pricing and features of the Volt. I spent some time here before I made my purchase.

I'm not sure how well the deal I got compares to what the rest of you are getting but it was the best one I could find after shopping many dealers with many of them offering no discounts due to the high demand.

I placed my order for a 2018 Volt last week at a dealer in the York Region area and I was able to negotiate a deal where the dealer matched me halfway between invoice price and MSRP.
They applied it to the price of the car and all the options available to it and also took the $14k govt incentive as down. I found their offer to be pretty hot.

Here's my build:
  • 2018 Volt LT
  • 24,000 Km/year (36 months lease)
  • Silver metallic paint
  • Leather comfort package
  • Bose Premium speakers
  • Driver confidence package (blind spot, rear cross traffic, parking sensors)
Total payment with taxes included is $509/month
I suspect this will be even less if you just wanted a base Volt with 20,000 km/year

What do you guys think of the deal?

Congratulations! That's a reasonable deal on a nicely optioned Volt.

For reference a new Smart ED lease quote I was offered at $248/month taxes included with down payment == Ontario rebate on a car fully optioned out (pano roof, 7" touch screen, heated steering wheel, ...). Of course, the Volt and Smart ED have similar all-electric range, but the Volt can also go anywhere on gas too.

This woudl be a great deal if I was able to get over just how tiny the interior is. It's like a shoebox. Feel so crammed.

Huh? My son and I are 6' tall, and we are comfortable in the Smart ED. My dealer rep is 6'5" and comfortably fits.

Reviews from 6' + drivers of the new Smart ED:
Smart has a very spacious feel


Here is the even more spacious convertible:

Forget trying to convince people, unless people don't sit inside one in real life, they will never get it. I sat in a used 2013 model and it was surprisingly spacious even being an older model. For the city its more than enough, unless you use your vehicle for business requiring more cargo

The new Smart has heated steering wheel as a standard feature - no longer an option.

Purchased a 2018 Volt LT. I got the dealer to knock $500 off MSRP to get the business, they also waived the $500 charge for the metallic grey color, sort of like $1000 off MSRP - but I wonder if they always waive the color charge since it's hard to believe people pay an extra $500 for grey rather than silver. There's also $500 cash back for the for the Visa application.
