I've started to email a couple of dealers in the area requesting their best price on a Volt LT. Here's the configuration I'm requesting:

LT-Any "non-premium" color except Black
Comfort Package
Leather Seats

It's a pretty basic build.The MSRP with regional ad fee is $36,139 and invoice is $34,678. I've received 2 offers so far, one at $33.339 and the other at $32,900. Both are for in stock units and are without Tax, Tag and Title

Just wondering if these are decent offers compared to what others have negotiated in the last month or so. I'm not in a huge rush but if these are solid my timeframe might move up. If any members in the Atlanta area can chime in with their experiences with local dealers that would be great!

The $32,900 is not much above what I paid for mine, but it has tint coat, Bose, and heated seats. Another thing to consider is the dealer and their attitude toward the Volt. I bought mine at Jim Ellis on PIB, and they have been great. I visited two other dealers before Ellis and was not impressed. [Hendricks and Nash] Ellis has Volt techs and the sales and service staffs are generally familiar with the Volt. They also have a decent inventory of Volts and several charge stations on the lot. When I had my Android Auto update done, they plugged in my car after the service and it was fully charged when I got there.

I got an E-Mail from the dealer last week and they had a silver LT which I wish was there when I bought mine. I much prefer the silver to red.

Jim Ellis is close to me and I did take a Volt for a test drive there. Sounds like they may be willing to work with me on the price. I haven't approached them about their pricing yet but may follow up with them to see what they can do. When did you purchase your Volt from them?

I bought mine on June 29th from Kernell Hunt. I have two other cars so I've only put 900+ miles on it so far. I had to do a little negotiating back and forth, but I got a good price on the Volt and a decent trade in on my old C-Max Energi. If you see Kernell, tell him you talked to O'Dell. I'm sure he'll remember me. Good luck!

BTW, I'm getting low to mid eighties on my EV miles. So far my longest trip was 85 miles and the engine hasn't fired up yet except for two maintenance burns.

I would not consider anything less than at least $6,000 off MSRP, and then work the price down from there. When we purchased our 2016 Volt GM offered 20% off plus the dealer gave us another $3,000 off for a total of a little over $11,000 for our 2016 Volt LTZ with a MSRP a little over $40,000. I would expect a similar GM offer on the 2017 Volt as gas prices are still relatively low, and some buyers are going to the new Bolt instead of the Volt as well.

I bet that was because they had a hard time pushing the 2016s when they can get a 2017 at the same price. When I went to my dealer to inspect my 2014, my sales guy and I was discussing the issue they had. I douibt you can get that same deal on a 2017!

Hello For the sake of clarification, the total cost for the below was 40,000-11000 =29,000. I think. As "$11,000 for our 2016 Volt LTZ" would be a crazy deal for any dealer.

.20 x 40,000= 8000$,, 8000 + 3000= the $11,000 off. Not sure where the $6000 went or the $7500 tax credit

I think you would be hard pressed to get $6000 off MSRP on a new 2017 LT. I've never seen anything close, but others may have had better luck.
