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:

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:

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...
