Volt Qualifies for $1500 California Rebate + HOV Access

General Motors has announced that a new low-emissions version of its 2012 Chevrolet Volt plug-in hybrid car has been cleared to use California's 1,400 miles of carpool lanes. While that could help Volt drivers spend less time on notoriously crowded Los Angeles freeways, it could also put more money in car owners' pockets. According to GM, the Low Emissions Package—standard on all California-bound Volts—makes the extended-range hybrd eligible for up to $1,500 in rebates from the state's Clean Vehicle Rebate Project. Coupled with the federal tax credit for green vehicles, California car shoppers could shave about $9,000 from the Volt's base price of $39,995—in addition to the $1,005 price cut by GM announced when the hybrid car rolled out nationwide last June.
