Buyers are eligible for the $7,500 federal EV tax credit, though they should be forewarned that some Chevy dealers have been accused of selling new Volts as gently used cars in order to pocket the difference in price. The new car is now available in two new colors: blue topaz metallic and summit white. In anticipation of orders ramping up, GM is expanding production at its Detroit-Hamtramck plant. Will you buy one?
