Has The Volt Suffered A Short With Consumers?

Has The Volt Suffered A Short With Consumers?

It does not take an advanced degree in political science and economics to see why sales of vehicles like the Chevy Volt are down. People cannot afford the price of the vehicles. The American/ world economy is not just bad , but very bad ! With the yearly average house hold income in the United States staying steady at around $46,000 a Chevy Volt with an original sticker price of $41,000 is out of reach. Even with the price reduction of the Volt the new $39,995 sticker price is still too high and nearly double the price of a base Chevrolet Cruze compact, which does shares the same underpinnings as Volt. Oh, and forget about that tax credit incentive because that does not matter to most people when money is due up front, it takes time to process the tax credit, and the paperwork is a mile long.
