Chevrolet Europe announces price reduction for Volt
Owing to a more streamlined production process and economies of scale, General Motors has been reducing the price of the Chevrolet Volt and Vauxhall/Opel Ampera in markets across the world.
As a result, the Volt’s sister car, the Opel Ampera, is now available priced from $38,300 (£32,500) including VAT in Germany, while North American buyers are being offered a $5,000 (£3,100) reduction on the Volt. Chevrolet has yet to announce similar plans in the UK, but is likely to do so shortly.
Thomas Sedran, president and managing director, Chevrolet Europe, said: ‘The lower price and cost savings from driving on electricity provide Volt owners a unique balance of technology, capability and cost of ownership. The latest Volt model will offer the same impressive list of features as before, plus Chevrolet’s new MyLink connected radio.’For more of the latest industry news, click here.
