    I was just wondering if anyone knows how close the volt is to not getting the full tax credit of $7500? Is there any site tracking this? Thanks, Rob
  2. California runs out of EV Rebate for Most People

    Buying, Leasing & Selling - Chevy Volt
    It's that time again when the California "Clean Vehicle Rebate Project" (CVRP) runs out of money to fund the rebate to Californians who buy EVs. The funds ran out as of 6-29-17. I bought my Volt on 7-2-17. What exquisite timing, eh? There's about $8,000,000 left to fund rebates for low income...

  4. Volt Sales Stats for RI Rebate Appeal March 2016

    Chevy Volt General Discussion, News, and Events
    Hi All, Just got the bad news that my new volt is not elegible for the 2.5k Drive rebate from the state of RI. Seems in the fine print you must buy from RI dealer. I shopped the RI dealers but they had limited stock and ended up buying in Ma. Now I can appeal and I think I can make the case if...

  7. Leasing a 2015 Volt very soon, need help with discounts/pricing

    Buying, Leasing & Selling - Chevy Volt
    Hello, all! I just joined this forum, but I hope to own a GM Volt very soon! I live in a state (Michigan) that will not be getting the 2016 Volts. I don't want to wait until the 2017 Volts arrive, so I am trying to buy a 2015. I want to get the car ASAP, because many of the incentives are only...
  8. Buying info available?

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    Hi all - I'm looking to buy a 2016 Volt but I feel like I don't know enough right now to make a smart purchase. The California and federal websites don't mention the 2016 Volt at all. Does anyone know if the $7500 (fed) and the $1500 (Cal) rebates will still be available if I buy a 2016 Volt...
  9. Federal rebate *subtracted* from residual??

    Buying, Leasing & Selling - Chevy Volt
    I have been studying up on how the federal rebate is applied to a Volt lease and thought I had it figured out: The $7500 rebate would be taken by the leasing company (owner of the car) and either 1) used to reduce the cap cost or 2) used to raise the residual. In either case, this will reduce...

    I'd love to hear anyone who has first hand experience in this or a similar matter, though opinions and thoughts are certainly appreciated.Specifically I'm interested if I still have a shot at the Fed and State rebates in the following scenario. Its a deal breaker for me... I found what I thought...

    Newcomers to GM-VOLT.COM (See here for FAQs)
    Just bought a new Volt yesterday. Can I submit CA rebate now or do I have to wait till I receive my DMV registration?
  12. Time to buy a new volt?

    Buying, Leasing & Selling - Chevy Volt
    Okay I am running some numbers and need a sanity check. Looking at new volts and prices are around 31,000-34,000. Fed rebate is 7.5k and IL state is 2.4K. This would leave a balance of 21,100-24,100. What are people seeing for trade-in values for 2013 volts (leather and heated seats) with...

    Chevy Volt General Discussion, News, and Events
    Hi everyone, I'm new to the forums and wanted to pick your brains. Our neighbor recently turned us onto the Volt. We had a chance to go out with him and his wife to lunch. I enjoyed the ride and asked a bunch of questions. I'm seriously considering getting a Volt after I turn in the lease on...
  14. What Incentives are Available in June 2014?

    Buying, Leasing & Selling - Chevy Volt
    I think that it would be useful to have one thread for discussing the current incentives available on the Volt, what it takes to qualify and if/how they can be combined. Actually I think it would be great to have one every month, but this is the month I expect to buy, so I'll start one for June...

  19. Volt buyers make $175k plus a year? And don't need the tax credit? Poll

    Politics, Finance, and Environment
    Pennsylvania Congressman Kelly says the average annual income of a Volt buyer is $175,000 and they don't need a tax credit. I was curious if this was true or not? Average annual income of a Volt buyer is $175k ??? Where do they get this info? I will be honest, I make alittle over $80k and I...

    Note the below attached images (hope this works!) This info came from an Ottawa, Ontario dealer who indicated he could go online and "build out" a 2012 Canadian Volt. Yesterday, though MSRP pricing is out, I was told Volts weren't yet 'orderable' so I didn't really believe the dealer....but...
