The final price in UK for 2011 Chevrolet Volt was announced!
The American car manufacturer made the pricing annoucement at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed.
The model will cost from £28,545 on the road when it reaches UK showrooms in spring next year.
Chevrolet Volt uses both petrol and electric powered motor to directly power the wheels, with the petrol engine only used to keep the vehicle’s integrated battery topped up.
Unlike conventional hybrids, the electric drivetrain – known as E-REV, Extended-Range Electric Vehicle – directly powers the car’s wheels.
“We wanted to back up a century of progress with our vision for the next century,” said Chevrolet UK managing director, Mark Terry. “Except it’s more than a vision, it’s a reality.”
“The Volt is a truly incredible car – the first ever compromise-free electric car with zero-emissions capability. You can use it for going to work and back during the week without ever putting fuel in, but it’s also an electric car that you can use for a family holiday. There are never any concerns that a flat battery will leave you stranded.”
The interior for all UK Volts, as standard, will be only with leather.
The £28,545 price of the Chevrolet Volt is more expensive than its rival, the Nissan LEAF, which cost £25,990.
The car will go on sale next spring.
