The Chevrolet Volt has been one of the hottest electric vehicles on the market ever since it first premiered back in 2011, so Chevy probably doesn’t even need to add incentives to customers to sell the next-generation Volt. But, out of the goodness of their hearts, they’ve stacked the new Chevrolet Volt with even more sales incentives than ever before anyhow. The most recent incentive—allowing single-occupant Chevy Volts access to the California carpool lane.
New Chevrolet Volt Gets Access to Carpool Lanes
This strategy of granting electric vehicle drivers carpool lane access has been very successful to electric vehicle sales, and Chevy hopes that success continues with their 2016 Volt plug-in hybrid model. After a year and a half on the market, the first generation Volt achieved carpool access status, but it appears the second generation model will get that privilege right from the start.
The carpool lane news isn’t the only good news, though. Recently, the Volt also received a large price reduction—Chevy lopped $1,175 off the car’s starting price. That brings the car’s starting price to just $33,995, but thanks to federal and local tax incentives, the Volt can be much more affordable even than that.
