Hot? 2017 Chevy Volt LT $31,415 OTR after incentives (Ont)

Deal Link:
Price:
31415
Retailer:
Chevrolet
seems like a really good deal.

any thoughts?

update: the gm site didn't disclose the sales tax. had to find it under the 'details' link under summary and payments. it would be 27801+3614 = 31415

I think at this point most folks will just wait for the Bolt because of its range.

If you really want to go electric, the Volt doesn't really make sense anymore, given that the Bolt is now here. Yes, the Bolt is more expensive, but not by very much, $4K higher on base MSRP, and you get much better range, to the extent where there should be no 'range anxiety' issues for day-to-day driving. It is likely Volt sales are going to drop in anticipation of the Bolt and we are going to see more incentives from GM to bring the price down further as a result.

Do we really save by getting electric over gas considering the cost of hydro? Also the cost for what you get on these cars are ridiculous.

I'm of the opposite opinion. If I had a Volt, then I would just run it on gas 100% of the time and don't bother even plugging it in.

I think HCCI is basically the advanced gasoline version of the Diesel engine. Sounds very promising actually. Beats th hell out of Diesel efficiency, too. Let's see if this stuff is real. If Mazda can really make HCCI work to the degree of sub 4 L per 100km, then there's no reason to actually buy electric.

If HCCI catches on, then Electric cars are completely worthless.

The Volt eliminates range anxiety especially if you're going on long trips. No need to worry about finding a charging station or outlet. I've been considering the Volt for quite awhile but have recently picked up a 2013 BMW 328i which I love so will hold off for a few more years until I get bored of the Bimmer.

I don't know where you are paying for Hydro... but most definately yes. Now is it worth the savings overall based on the price of a new car vs buying a used one.. hard to say.

For me, I am a few months away from having to drive 120 kms each way (240kms per day) for work.

We are getting a Bolt or Model3 depending on availability as soon as possible. Not just for gas savings, but also emissions savings.

Sadly the Volt won't cut it for my needs.

I have a Volt and I love it, I barely use any gas but commute is only 24km round trip. But when it is using gas the mileage is better than any other gas powered car out there. No range anxiety on this which is a really nice feature.

I had a Volt and it was an amazing car. Super reliable and the electric range covered most days.

"Had" suggests you found something significant wrong with it?
