2012 Chevrolet Volt Order Books Open

Volt On Sale at 2012 Chevrolet Volt Order Books Open

Chevrolet began today taking orders for the 2012 Volt in all 50 states of America, with a base price of $39,995.

That’s before tax, if you take the full federal tax credit of $7,500 into account, that’ll be $32,496. And that means it’s a full $1000 cheaper than the 2011 model, which was available in just seven states and the District of Columbia. The price includes an $850 destination charge.

So the base price has been dropped, but options list can still empty your wallet easily! A fully loaded Volt, with leather appointments, backup camera, navigation system and premium paint and wheels is priced at $46,265. The Volt will be available in two additional interior accents (white and spiced red) and two new exterior colors (Summit White and Blue Topaz Metallic).

As I’m sure you know, Chevy Volt is powered by an electric powertrain backed up by a gas-powered range-extender engine. For the first 35 miles, the Volt can drive gas- and tailpipe-emissions free using a full charge of electricity.  When the Volt’s battery runs low, a gas-powered engine/generator seamlessly operates to extend the driving range another 344 miles. that means a total range of 379 miles, at 93 mpg- equivalent.

New features for 2012 include:

  • Standard keyless access with passive locking; the car automatically locks and unlocks with the key fob in close proximity of vehicle
  • OnStar Turn by Turn navigation standard for three years, and available in-dash navigation system
  • Chevrolet MyLink including Bluetooth streaming audio for music and select phones (late availability)
  • Standard AM/FM stereo with CD player and MP3 playback and 7-inch diagonal color touch-screen display
  • Available 17-inch sport alloy wheels with black inserts (late availability).

Chevrolet will continue to offer an eight-year/100,000-mile* limited warranty on the Volt’s 16-kWh lithium-ion battery, plus:

  • Three-year/36,000-mile* bumper-to-bumper coverage
  • Five-year/100,000-mile* roadside assistance and courtesy transportation
  • Five-year/100,000-mile* limited gas engine coverage
