Hello,

I've been looking into purchasing Volt recently.
After I found this web-site, I could get lots of information about Volt.
I love here.

I just found out there was 20% off incentive last year from threads at here.
And in July this year, there is no incentives for Volt . It's already 7th in July.
Is there any chance of GM Incentives(20% off) for Volt will be announced in Aug?
no chance until Fall?

Thanks

I have my doubts that GM will be offering 20% off on the volt. You must remember that 2016 was the first year of the Gen 2s and the 2017 were coming out on the heels of the 2016. They wanted to get rid of all the 2016s. Since there is no real big change from 2017 to 2018, I don't think there is an incentive on GM part to offer big discounts. They might offer smaller discounts in the near future.

If the issue is money, look around for a '16 or '17 used. They do exist (I found two, one with 4K miles the other 6K) and are substantially cheaper than brand new, yet still have most of the warranty. Such cars will usually be $15K-$18K cheaper than new models.

I'm counting on GM having an offer perhaps of 17% off all 2017 Volts. The price of crude oil as I type this is below $45.00 per barrel, 42/ bbl= $1.07 / gal. There is no rush or long lines waiting to buy hybrids, plugs ins, and electric vehicles with oil this low. Also we now have more choices of these vehicles from several auto manufactures than even a few years ago.

Current inventory of 2017 Volt's is over 4,000, and the 2018 models will be coming off the assembly line soon. I don't see GM not having a large price cut soon,especially with the current market and low oil prices as we have now and looks like for the future as well.

Plus you can always haggle like a Ferengi to achieve 20% off by yourself. Widen your search, don't trust the price listed on a dealership's website. I found my volt heavily discounted in a small town of less than 6000 people, whereas the biggest city nearby has lots of customers willing to pay closer to MSRP.

There is always a chance but it doesn't seem that likely. Discounts on the Bolt EV and Volt have actually gone in the other direction over the last week or so. Right now the going discount in CA seems to be $4500. That could go to $5500, maybe even $6000, but probably not anymore than that. While GM is sitting on excess inventory of pretty much all cars, the Volt doesn't seem to be unusual in any way.

However, after the 2018 MY goes into production you may be able to pick up a leftover at a highly discounted price. If you want to lease this gets dicey since leases are limited by production years. Follow the recommendation of casting your net as wide as possible. Some dealers can offer better discounts than others for a variety of reasons.

Widening the search area is a fantastic idea. But once you've done that your ability to "negotiate" your way to a lower price is very limited.

Thank you for every replies.
Both of positive, negative opinions make sense in each way.
But I hope alfon is right.

Since I can wait until September, I think I should wait one more month and search more widely.

Thanks guys.

Got a Private Offer in the mail today (non-transferrable) $3000 off on both Volt and Bolt from dealer stock, must take delivery by end of August. Check your mailbox!

I'm thinking the market will be roiled by mid-2018, with some federal tax credits tapering off (Tesla and GM?), Leaf's new 200 mile range and maybe Chrysler will have finished inventing the hybrid Pacifica. I'd really like a Pacifica, and if there are year-end 2018 deals around, may spring for one. It's easy to get hooked on tax credits that make a new car affordable every couple of years!

I just posted this in a new thread.

New 2017 Volts LT's $5,000 off M.S.R.P. in Portland Oregon
Wentworth Chevrolet, Portland Oregon, already has 2017 Volt LT's at $5,000 off M.S.R.P. which brings the price for a base model down to a little over $29,000. (with Fed Tax Credit of course $21,500). No sales tax in Oregon as well.

I think the price may actually go lower as Wentworth may be anticipating a 20% off MSRP soon from GM, just a hunch.

When I see the price of a 2017 Volt LT drop even lower to about $25,000 I just may pull the trigger as we qualify for the Fed Tax Credit 100%.
