cheaper voltElectric vehicles have not really gone mainstream just yet, although you can say that it has certainly picked up steam in the past few years, as more and more people look at electric cars in a different light. The Chevrolet Volt could prove to be a “mainstream” electric vehicle, so to speak, but demand has not been as strong as what its executives anticipated ever since the Volt entered production at the beginning of this decade. General Motors has been touted to be working on a more affordable bank account friendly version of its Chevrolet Volt, which is not necessarily a bad thing.

It seems that GM has sold a mere 58,158 Chevrolet Volts to date, which is far behind the likes of the Nissan Leaf that has already achieved over 80,000 in total sales, and the number is set to continue in an upward trend. The 2016 Chevrolet Volt will arrive in an entry-level version that has been priced “from just over $30,000,” which is cheaper than the existing model’s $35,000 price tag. If this rumor proves to be true, then we are looking at a looking price war which might end up good for the industry if adoption rates of the Chevy Volt increases. Are you looking to purchase an electric vehicle anytime soon?
