The Chevy Volt, GM's new all-electric car, is finally available for pre-order, and the price is now official: $41,000. But a nice $7,500 tax credit should bring that down considerably.
If you live in one of seven of the launch markets for the Volt - California, New York, Michigan, Connecticut, Texas, New Jersey, and Washington DC - you can head to a Chevy dealer and place your order today. You can either buy it or lease it for $350/month for 36 months with a $2,500 down payment. There's no specific date on when deliveries are happening, but Chevy promises they'll arrive "late this year."
With you Volt you'll also get a 120-volt charge cord, with 4,400 getting a free charging station as well as part of a Department of Energy program.
So, what do you think? Are you ready to never stop at a gas station again?
