So many people with the same mindset as me about buying a used late-model Volt when it comes time to replace theirs makes me think it isn’t going to be so easy. It will be a sellers’ market. Maybe time to get one now and baby it while treating the original as the beater.

I sold my 2013 Volt and bought a used 2019 Volt last November for all the reasons this thread exists. I realized, hey I want a Volt for longer than my 2013 is going to last (plus I don't typically run my car till it dies.. I want reliability). So I started looking at the 2019s that were coming back from leases. Last Oct/Nov there were starting to become more and more 2019 for sale. I got a previously leased 2019 Pacific Blue Volt (wow that color!) for pretty low mileage - it obviously had sat unused a lot during the pandemic work from home phase. As a little bonus, it had a CA purple car pool sticker which is valid until Jan 2023. It's been running great, and it sounds like I lucked out getting it when I did, before gas rise, low car stock, etc. But yes, I too wish they would have continued to make the Volt!

My Hope and running theory is by the time our older votes are steadily running out of life there will be many more modern EVs enticing people on the market so most people who got and could afford late model volts will be able and willing to make the jump to one of the many new BEVS coming on the market.

I bought mine with 42K miles and I put 34k miles on it. About 10% on gas and the rest all electric. I drive about 100 miles round trip. Level 2 charging at home and Level 1 charging at work. Most of the gas consumption is during winter. Cabin heater takes a lot of energy and I would rather be comfortable than to save a few gallons of gas.
