Have you all seen the announcement of GM's latest plug-in hybrid?

Various bloggers are saying 335 Hp, electric range greater than 30 miles, and mileage better than 40 MPG.

An interesting and very detailed look at the Gen 2 Volt propulsion system.

Gen 2 GM Volt Plug-in Hybrid (2016+) MSRP $33,995

Doesn't the Volt gen 2 deserve its own thread?

It is a completely new design, after all.

If there is a Gen 2 thread I missed, moderator feel free to move my post.

Lots of posts on the gen 2 posted previously on the gen 1 thread:

Only news below, is the price:

2016 Chevy Volt gets a $1,115 price cut


The 2016 version of the gasoline-electric plug-in hybrid car has been redesigned from the wheels up, with a smaller, more powerful battery pack, an electric driving range of up to 50 miles on a single charge and an optional jump seat for a fifth passenger.

When it arrives this fall, the including destination, down from the 2015 Volt's sticker of $35,110, including shipping, General Motors said today.

Some buyers will be able to purchase a 2016 Volt for as little as $26,495, once federal tax credits of up to $7,500 are factored in; in California, the Volt’s price could be as low as $24,995, with state incentives.

This is the second time GM has reduced the price of the Volt. The company reduced the price by $5,000 to start the 2014 model year.

Looks like they weren't kidding when they said cost savings of the gen II are going to be to make the car profitable and not to cut the sticker price. It really is too little of a price drop to say it means anything without knowing the option specs. and what it will top out at.

It will come in two versions, base 2LT and an upscale 2LZ. It looks like the base version is pretty well equipped. Here's a link.

Plenty of volt discussion here:
http://gm-volt.com/
Any threads about GM's PHEV technology here on MNL are better left to focus on how it is superior to short range BEVs, how Bob Lutz was right, and to educate those who will inevitability become disenchanted with the Leaf. :lol:

34k is $5000 dollars more than a base/entry Nissan Leaf; which seems very reasonable for an EV plus an internal combustion engine for when the battery runs out. There's a lot of other differences between a Leaf and a Volt, but the price seems fine. Hopefully, the Volt2 will help build the public's interest in PHEV's and EV's...... and help increase sales (for both).

And particularly when you consider that the base Volt has a much higher equipment and feature content than the base Leaf...
