Good news from Mark Reuss on the Volt's future pricing:
Five Questions: GM's Mark Reuss on smaller market share, pickups and Chevy Volt sticker
—When does a new Volt electric car come out and when does the price drop? (Volt has a base price of just over $39,000): The cost will drop with each model year as engineers make the car more efficient, Reuss says. The battery could get smaller, and the engine and transmission parts will become lighter and cost less. "I think the car just naturally comes down in price and becomes much more efficient year after year after year."
