GM working on bringing down price of Chevy Volt for 2016 model

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Transportation

Chevy Volt 2016

As a brand, the Chevy Volt is well-known in the electric vehicle market. That said, mind-share doesn't equal sales, and GM is set to step up its efforts to make the Volt the car that EV buyers end up choosing when it's time to buy. To fix this, GM is planning on bringing down the entry-level price of the 2016 Volt, and then offering tiered upgrades, similar to the way Tesla sells the Model S.

At the low end, the 2016 Chevy Volt should cost just over $30,000, which is about $5,000 less than it currently costs now, bringing it closer in line with competing vehicles like the Honda Accord plug-in and Ford C-Max Energi. Total range of the entry-level Volt should be under 300 miles, and won't be as heavy on the upgraded feel of the car--but if those options aren't your jam anyway, then you can save yourself some money.

BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe

BMW has announced a new four-door to its lineup in the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe. What you have here is what amounts to a 3 series BMW that has a tailgate rather than a proper trunk. The 4 Series Gran Coup is also half an inch longer and wider than the 3 series, and also and inch-and-a-half lower to the ground. Prospective buyers in the US can choose between the 428i GC model, which has a 2-liter 240hp turbo engine that can go from 0-to-60 in 5.7 seconds, or the 435i GC with a 300hp 3-liter inline-six that goes from 0-to-60 in 4.9 seconds. Pricing starts at $41,225.

The 2014 Chevy Camaro Z28

2014 chevrolet camaro z28

What's so impressive about the 2014 Chevy Camaro Z28? Well, for starters, it can beat the lap times of the Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 and the 911 Carrera S, with credit going to the 7-liter LS7 V8 engine. For real, that bad boy throws 505 horsepower with 481 pound feet of torque. More interesting might be the front tires. They're Pirelli P Zero Torfeo R series, and are the wides of any car in production, anywhere. Now if only the center console didn't look like it was pulled out of 1997.

Volkswagen e-Golf

We've been watching the progress of Volkswagen's Golf Blue-e-motion electric car for a couple of years now, and are excited to report that the vehicle is finally set for release. The German automaker says we should expect to see it arrive Stateside sometime between late 2014 and early 2015. Expect features like LED headlamps, a quick charging battery that can go from empty to 80% in about 30 minutes, and a range of 118 miles on a full charge. Oh, and zero-to-60 MPH in ten seconds.
