A few details have emerged on the 2017 Chevrolet Volt due this spring in all 50 states.
As reported in September, a new color from the Disney Tomorrowland feature will be Citron Green Metallic, and more importantly is adaptive cruise control on the Premier trim level.
News not available in September is this option will fetch $1,195 in theory, but actually $2,185 in fact. This is because it must be bundled with blind spot warning, rear cross-traffic alert, forward collision warning, lane-keeping, low-speed automatic braking and intelligent high beams, says Cars Direct.
MSRP will be the same thanks to a $50 price decrease to compensate for a $50 destination charge increase. Specifically, the base car will be $33,995 with destination, and the Premier is $38,345.
The new Volt will meet federal tier 3 emissions rules (not surprisingly) and here’s maybe the best option of all: GM will sell it in 39 more states than the 2016 model.
Chevy marketing head Steve Majoros also told us in Detroit last January the new car will be advertised more effectively in markets in which it’s sold.
Does this mean we’ll see ads in all 50 states? Not known. The Volt is being better received by media this time around – for gen one it got good reviews but had lots of hit pieces written against it too.
While some negativity has been put out there, it’s less, and the new 53-mile all-electric range evolved car offers more than the original 2011 that had 35 miles all-electric range and started at just around $40,000.
