Just after we announced that Volt will cost ~40.000$, Chevrolet released today a video showing why you need such a car.
First of all, the 2011 Volt comes with eight year or 100,000 miles warranty that covers all 161 battery components found in the Volt.
In addition, Chevrolet will provide:
• 3-year / 36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper coverage
• 5-year / 100,000-mile roadside assistance and courtesy transportation
• 5-year/100,000-mile limited gas engine coverage
• 6-year/100,000-mile corrosion protection coverage
Also, according to them, volt is capable of running 40 all-electric miles and traveling for up to 340 miles on single full tank. And if you go out of battery, the car will recharge in ten hours using a 120V outlet or in four hours using a 240V outlet.
Talking about the official price, GM announced yesterday that Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price starts at $41,000 ($33,500 net of full federal income tax credit, which ranges from $0 to $7,500); Lease payment on a 36-month lease at MSRP as low as $350 per month with $2,500 due at lease signing including security deposit.
Customer deliveries of the Chevrolet Volt are scheduled to begin in launch markets late this year with initial production limited.
