Chevrolet has announced pricing information for the 2016 Volt set to go on sale in United States in the second half of the year.

 

The overhauled Volt carries a starting price of $33,995 MSRP (including $825 destination fee) which makes it almost $1,200 cheaper than its predecessor. By including the maximum federal tax credit of $7,500, the vehicle’s price tag drops to $26,495 and those living in California - Volt’s biggest market - can actually get it for as low as $24,995 thanks to the local incentives.

 

We remind you the second-gen Volt debuted back in January at NAIAS in Detroit looking far more stylish than the old model and with improved specs. The powertrain consisting of a 101 bhp 1.5-liter 4-cylinder engine, 149 bhp electric motor and 18.4 kWh lithium-ion battery pack is now 12% more efficient than before and also 100 lbs (45 kg) lighter.

 

It can travel on electric power for up to 50 miles (80 km) while the overall range stands at 420 miles (676 km). Recharging the battery pack takes 13 hours from a 120V outlet or 4.5 hours when using a 240V outlet.

In terms of performance, the 2016 Chevrolet Volt sprints to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 8.4 seconds which makes it 7% quicker than its predecessor.
