Can you tell us more about connecting the Solar Arrays to the Volt during the day? Would love to have a Solar Canopy at home but I like the idea of utilizing Solar while at work as well. Thank you!

We were offered a fully loaded Premium package, safety 1 & 2, Navigation, for $39,900.

Welcome back after 5 years. What year Volt are you looking at. There are still a lot of 2011 & 2012s left for sale. If you are in CA there is a cutoff date for getting certain incentives. Chevy made some changes in the 2013 model to get CA to accept the Volt for HOV lane access. A loaded one with the features you show has a TMV of $37,248. That includes the current $5000 cash off that started August 1st. Looks like you should be able to get them down another $2700. Before the $7500 tax credit if you can use that this year.

Are you saying there are a lot of "brand new" 2011 and 2012 Volt's still out there?
I was not aware of that.
I have a 2012 leased, but would be interested in a "super" deal on another!

Both Autotrader and Cars.com list several hundred new 2011 & 12s. have no idea what kind of deals. There is over 5000 2013 left out there. Should be dealing according to Edmunds TMV.

So $34,700 ... now did you include the 7,500 government rebate in that number?
I suppose there are probably still some state rebates also.... but none in Nevada that i know of.

Looks like GM is slashing another $5000 off the MSRP of the Volt. Wait a while they may be in boxes of Cracker Jacks.
2013 Chevrolet Volt (GM)
General Motors Co. is slashing the price of its plug-in hybrid Chevrolet Volt by $5,000, making it the latest automaker to lower prices of electric vehicles in the face of lagging consumer demand.
The Detroit-based automaker said it will cut the base price 12.5 percent, from $39,995 to $34,995. The price cut comes just weeks after the automaker announced a $5,000 give-back on the 2012 Volt and $4,000 on the 2013 model.

Thank you for that information and link......
The question it brings up in my mind is... does this replace the "give-back" price-cuts or is it in addition to?
In other words if the base car MSRP is now $34,995 is there another $4k give back that brings the price for a 2013 model down to $30,995 before the $7,500 government rebate?
Or did they just replace the $4k give back with the across the board $5k drop in MSRP?
Thanks for your time and info,
