It’s been a long time coming, but today General Motors officially announced that the Chevy Volt will have an MSRP of $41,000, though if you qualify for the full federal income tax credit of $7,500, the MSRP is technically $33,500. Just keep in mind that’s a tax credit, not a coupon, you still have to pony up the full $41,000 if you want to buy a Volt when they’re available in very limited numbers at the end of the year.
But I’m sure that price tag won’t deter early adopters, so if you live in the California, New York, Michigan, Connecticut, Texas, New Jersey or Washington D.C. areas you can head on over to your local Chevy Volt dealer. Not sure where that is? Well there’s a site for that called www.getmyvolt.com that should be updated with a dealer locator sometime today. And don’t forget, as part of a program developed by the U.S. Department of Energy, 4,400 lucky Volt owners will be eligible for a free 240-volt home charging station, including installation costs.
I just hope GM has solved that rumored issue where touching the Volt in the wrong place causes the car to dramatically lose acceleration. *Update: Looks like they’ve just stuck a bumper on the front and back as a workaround.
