Do you have your eyes on the upcoming Chevy Volt plug-in hybrid, the deal just got a whole lot sweeter. While the official price is supposedly around $40,000, it's going to be $7,500 cheaper thanks to some pretty sweet tax breaks included in last week's massive government bailout bill.
In order to promote eco-friendly technology and the corporations that engineer them, the government is planning to offer a whopping $7,500 tax credit to anyone who purchases a Volt. The bill doesn't mention the Volt by name, but it's the only car that meets the standard of having a 4 kWh (or greater) battery. Presumably, more will come along in the future that will also be eligible for the tax break. So, does this push you towards the Volt?
