We have a 2016 Volt Premier, my wife's car, with nearly 20,000 miles and purchased new in July 2016, we traded our 2014 Volt which we had for nearly 3 years and over 40,000 miles.
So far our 2016 Volt has had a few factory recalls and service bulletins from GM, all under warranty. With summer weather our range on electric is usually 60 + miles for mostly city and rural highway driving. Of course living out here in northwestern Oregon we take several trips to the Portland Oregon area and also down the coast via Highway 101 outside of the electric range.
We use the gas engine quite often and overall mpg just on gas is 45.22 mpg, regular gas no premium gas required, since new, according to voltstats.net. Not many economy cars can beat that when you consider that is the overall lifetime mpg's including winter driving as well. Overall mpg is over 147 mpg for both electric and gas.
When we made the purchase in July 2016 GM had 20% off MSRP, the dealer, Wilsonville Chevrolet, 15 miles or so south of Portland Or, the dealer also gave us another $3,000 off as well for a total of a little over $11,000 dollars. With the Federal $7,500 tax credit which we got 100% back on our taxes the price was below $22,000, civic and corolla territory.
I would imagine with the price of gas less than $2.50 / gallon and so many hybrid car choices GM will offer an incentive to get the dealer inventory down which I believe as I type this is over 4,000 new Volts.
I believe, and perhaps many forum members as well, their is more technology in a 2016-17 Volt than nearly every other car that is available for sale, and for the price of most other cars.
How many cars with just a push of a button you can use 100% electric propulsion, or gas engine propulsion, your choice, thanks to two electric motors, and a 101 HP very fuel efficient direct injection gas engine?
