2014 Chevy Volt Price Drops By $5,000

Anyone who has been following the saga of the Chevy Volt knows that the single biggest issue facing the plug-in hybrid is its high price. General Motors has said time and again it wants to lower the price of the Volt by as much as $10,000 for the next generation. For now, the 2014 Chevy Volt price has dropped by $5,000, meaning you can buy a 2014 Chevy Volt for under $30,000.

First Chevy Volt Owner Averages 459 MPG

The Chevy Volt has received more than its fair share of criticism, but as sales continue to climb, more success stories from Volt owners seem to be coming out. Retired pilot Jeffrey Kaffee, the first person to buy a Chevy Volt outside of auction, has reportedly used just 26 gallons of gasoline in two years of owning his Volt. With more than 12,000 miles on the odometer, that works out to an average of 459 mpg.

Former Prius Owners Turning To Chevy Volt

The Chevy Volt doesn’t get a lot of love from the right-wing, and Monday’s biased Reuters article claiming each Volt costs GM up to $49,000 certainly doesn’t help. But there is one group of car owners who are turning to the Volt in high numbers, and it is just the customer GM is hoping to attract.

I’m talking about owners of the Toyota Prius, which is the #1 traded-in vehicle for Volt customers.

More Math Nonsense Claims Each Chevy Volt Costs GM $49,000

I wish I could understand the obsession with the Chevy Volt. There are far more interesting stories coming out of GM these days, but the media can’t get enough of lambasting the Volt. The latest ridiculous study claims that Chevy is losing as much as $49,000 for every car sold. The assertion is ridiculous, the article sensationalist, and I am sick of hearing this kind of bullshit.
