The all-new 2016 Chevy Volt is officially on sale, but if you live in any other state besides California, you’ll be disappointed to hear that you may not be able to buy the new Volt. Initially it was reported that GM was going to limit the initial availability of the 2016 Volt to just 11 states, but now GM has decided to limit even further to only California. The news is obviously a big blow to plug-in hybrid buyers who may have been excited about the new Volt and its extended electric driving range.

When will the rest of the country get the new Volt? According to one spokesperson, the 2016 Volt will have a short model run and will only be available in California. The rest of the country will have to wait until the spring when the 2017 Volt enters production. It’s still not completely known why GM has decided to limit the availability of the 2016 Volt, but when the 2017 Volt arrives it will reportedly offer even more features.
