With the second-gen just around the corner, it will be a bit tricky for Chevrolet to sell the remaining stock and still make a profit, especially since in the first four months of the year they only delivered 2,779 cars, representing a massive 46% drop compared to the same period of 2014.

For those who don't want to wait for the vastly improved second generation Volt, now is the best time to haggle on a first-gen model since according to the figures released by TrueCar, the 2015 Volt (MSRP $34,345) has an average closing price of $30,607, without taking into account tax credits.

We remind you the 2016 Volt will cost $33,995 MSRP (including $825 destination fee) and by adding the $7,500 federal tax credit, the price will be reduced to $26,495 ($24,995 in California thanks to extra incentives).
