Had a 3-year Volt lease back in 2013 that expired last year, but the 2016 wasn't available around here so I held off. I'm now looking at getting a new Volt in the next few weeks, but deals around this area don't seem to be very enticing at the moment - locally the best I'm seeing is $500-$1500 off of MSRP and not much in the way of incentives or rebates.

I'm in the Seattle area and I'm potentially willing to make a weekend trip for a good deal. I'm not sure what of the great deals posted here are available OOS or not.

The rules have changed trying to lease a great deal in CA from out of state. Incentives seem to be only good for cars registered in CA. I have a family member trying to do the same thing, lives in Utah and 2014 lease is up this summer. Local leases in Utah are going for $450/month!

Very disappointed in GM/Chevy. They gained all these new customers in 2012-14 with the great lease deals (and Volts) and now these people are trying to lease another Volt and they are forced to pay crazy rates at their local dealers. GM should allow them something similar to CA deals at local dealers and keep these new customers happy. They will be jumping brands if they keep this up.

My simple advice is to look far and wide. Local is only for service, not purchasing. There is nothing wrong with purchasing local, but use cars.com, cargurus.com, and Ebay. There are others but those are my favorites. Don't be afraid to look 500 miles or 1000 miles away. I personally just drove 4 hours one way to trade my 2012 in for a 2016 and got an amazing deal. There is nothing complicated about shopping far and wide. The market price in your area may be VERY different than the market price in other areas, but guess what? Those Volts are all the same. ;)

If the Hyundai Ioniq plug in gets 30 miles on electricity alone-- making it available for the sales tax exemption-- that might make GM dealers come down in price.

Try GMC/Chevrolet of Puyallup. They are a Costco dealership. Sold me my GMC Sierra Denali 2500 for a significant discount, perhaps their Volts can be had a good price.

Good luck!

I decided not to get an electric car. Washington State is making it very expensive. If you use PSE energy, the electricity is nearly as expensive per mile as gas. The State is also charging and EV surcharge on your vehicle registration, and now, Sound Transit 3 is going to make your tabs very very expensive because it is based on MSRP. There isn't any savings. I see lots full of Volts at the Chevy dealerships around here. GM needs to get a clue and drop the price about 20%.

Washington State is probably not an ideal state to buy a new Volt. It seems that the government has no problem with incentives to have people buy electric cars, and than stab you in the back with higher fees. Also when electric rates are high, .25 per KWH or so you are better off not buying a Volt, unless you are generating you own electricity...
