Skip to comments.Chevy Volt to cost $41,000 before rebate (ObamaMobile goes on sale)

The Chevrolet Volt, the first mass-market electric vehicle from General Motors Co., will have a sticker price starting at $41,000 when it hits showrooms later this year.
But government tax credits and rebates designed to speed the entry of electric vehicles into the marketplace will make the price more attractive. There's a federal tax credit of $7,500 for electric vehicles. That lowers the Volt price to $33,500. An earlier report factored in an additional $5,000 credit for Californians, which would have brought the price to $28,500, but GM said the Volt will not be included in the state's special rebate program.
The sticker price of the hybrid Toyota Prius, the current favorite of gasoline misers and eco-drivers, ranges from $22,150 to $28,820, depending on the trim level and equipment.

How long till we're all REQUIRED to buy one (for our OWN GOOD, of course)? Electric cars DON'T WORK! Duuuh.
40 miles on a single charge...couldn’t get me to my parents house in a day!
Does the price include an SUV to TOW this car? Or, maybe it has a 400-mile cord! LOL!
It has an onboard generator - it actually has unlimited mileage... as long as you keep feeding it that eeeeeeevil gasoline.
batteries not included?
I wonder why the batteries are called rare earth?
As crappy as the thing is likely to be, it actually has infinite range. 40 miles on battery then it starts its internal gasoline generator and uses that for power instead. Keep feeding it gas and it’ll keep going.
Only Big Brother would invest in a car that can only go 40 miles! No one actually interested in PROFIT would dream of it.
Uh oh....PETA is right around the bend......
I have to pay taxes to help rich people afford solar to beat the high electric prices that I pay, I may as well be forced to buy rich people economical cars so that they can beat the high gas prices that I pay, maybe I will have enough blood left to pay for their kids college that I can’t afford for myself or mine.
Still can’t get away from ethyl....
GM motors is to the auto industry ,
as Obamacare is to medicine,
as Martin Luther King Blvd. is to roadways. (erman 2010)
How much juice will it draw on that 10 hour recharge?
As compared to, say.....6-8 100 Watt lightbulbs?
4 hours at 220V. Wouldn’t that be like 4 hours with the dryer on high? or your water heater?
As compared to a some gas cars that can go that far on $2.79 worth of unleaded?
My prediction: Not ONE of these ObamaMobiles will be sold to the general public. They’ll all be purchased by government agencies, which will never use them because nobody will want to ride in one.
Can you imagine the look on a cop’s face if he was issued one of these as a squad car? I can see the headline now: “Car Chase Ended so Police Could Stop to Plug In — Liberals Shocked When Criminal Refuses to Wait!”
Did you even bother to read my post? That won’t happen because the car actually has a gasoline-powered generator on board.
IT ISN’T BATTERY-ONLY! So repeating this point you’re trying to make only makes you look like a fool; better to use some other point to attack it (and it has a lot of targets.)
They’re exempt from ObamaCare.
High efficiency cleaned-up diesels likely a better “green choice”. Those don’t waste energy hauling heavy batteries around.
Any bets that Algore won’t buy one?
