Where Are the Huge GM Incentives on VOLT for JULY 4th Sale? Last Year it was 20% + Dealer discounts of up to $5000 to 5500.00 + Farm Bureau etc??

I bought a Loaded one then for over $12,000 off msrp and was hoping to do it again this year.
Has anyone heard anything for this year??
Please advise?

One year is not like the next. It's all about supply as well as CAFE and ZEV credits. In CA you can get $5K+ off but not $12K. In fact I don't remember deals like other than on close outs from the previous MY, especially when GM moved from gen one to gen two, but I don't follow pricing that closely.

I think they ran their incentive in May - 0% for 60 months. Incentives are based on the number of cars sitting unsold in GM's inventory, not the dealership inventories. Once a car is shipped to a dealership it's no longer on GM's inventory.

Last year they had the 20% off MSRP sale, started around 4-5 pm PST and lasted for a few days. That's when I got my 2016 Volt Premier for around $22,500 after 20% off MSRP, $3K off from dealer, no sales tax for WA, and $7,500 federal tax credit.

There are a bunch of cars and trucks at 17% off right now (ending today).

Looks like GM is still offering 0% for 60 months through the 5th.

And most people can manage at least a 5% loan. Spread over the outstanding balance, that's a 2.5% discount. Yay.

I'd still roll my own deal

1. Haggle like a ferengi for the lowest price
2. Pay 100% down 0% interest for a $0 monthly payment

I know, there are those who would say to take the 0% loan and keep the cash in an investment pocketing the spread, but there's also the concept of saving, and paying for things as you can afford them and having the peace of not having debt over your head. Walking into a dealership and signing for payments doesn't activate the pain centers in your brain - so it makes it all to easy to rinse and repeat on another car, a truck, an ATV, a Sea Doo, a bass boat, pool table, zero turn mower, etc. whereas, when you walk in with a check and see your bank account get significantly smaller, that pain will cause you to make sure this is really what you want and need, and that you can handle it, causing fewer regrets.

I'm hoping Chevy will run the 20% off clearance on the current model year Volt's like they had done in prior years. I was expecting it to be announced today, but perhaps Chevy is waiting for the 4th of July Sale to kick off the added incentives.

But NO VOLTS??
The 17% deal was for Malibus, Cruzes, and Silverados (maybe Equinox, I don't recall), but that ended on June 30th. There's a new deal for 20% off Impalas and Sonics. But again, no volts.
