Either I'm confused, or you're confused, or we both are. Yes, the Volt is $39,995 with
the destination (base price $39,145). Is the $39,995 for the FFE with
the destination (making the base FFE and Volt the same price) or without
the destination (making the base FFE more than
the base Volt)?
Probably a bit cheaper in some states, like CA, where it will qualify for the $2,500 CVRP rebate, while the Volt doesn't.
Yet... By the time the FFE comes out that'll probably be moot. It's not clear when the Volt will be AT-PZEV, but it should be sometime during the MY '12 run (which means probably before the FFE hits the streets).
Also, maybe the Focus EV will be a bit better equipped than the base Volt.
Interesting thought. The base Volt isn't that bad a car. All said, adding in the PiP the $3x,xxx price market is getting pretty crowded.
