Nice! I was surprised to see New Hampshire on the list of states available in the “second” wave. I didn’t think they were a CARB state; has that changed, or are they just lucky?

Here is a list of CARB states:

It looks like New Hampshire is not one of them so maybe it’s just because New Hampshire is in New England and GM included all of New England in the second wave?

States with incentives?

Thanks Scramjett.

Londo, NH doesn’t have incentives either, so color me perplexed. 🙂

Scramjett

No problem. 🙂

When will the pricing for the options come out?

IDK

It will be interesting to see the sales numbers when they finally come out later this year for the Gen 2. I expect them to be at the same levels from 2014 (maybe higher at first). Just a guess of course.

Speaking as a diehard Leaf guy, I have to say that I think the Volt will be a big success, and I’ll be VERY happy to see it. Yes, the Volt has some issues for some people — only 4 seats, cramped back seat, etc. — that we’ve rehashed endlessly. But the overall value proposition is very good to excellent for a sizable portion of the US public. I’d seriously consider a Volt to replace my wife’s Civic, except for the fact that her car gets very few miles. We drive my Leaf almost all the time, so our best bet is to hang on to her car for at least a few more years while cars with plugs continue to evolve. And from an environmental standpoint, I’m happy every time I see a Volt because the people who buy them tend to be pretty diligent about driving on electrons as much as possible. I’m sure there’s some post honeymoon drop off (no plugging in/sex jokes, please), but I’d wager that the average Volt owner uses very little gasoline and does far more to reduce his or her carbon footprint than the average ELR driver, for example.

Yes, we couldn’t justify the Volt either, but I’m with you on being happy at seeing one. I may not ever get a Volt, but that doesn’t mean I can’t be happy to see more of them. We all have our own needs that the Volt may fit. The way I look at it is, the more plug-ins, the merrier.

” I’d wager that the average Volt owner uses very little gasoline and does far more to reduce his or her carbon footprint than the average ELR driver, for example.”

You’d lose that bet.

VoltStats shows ELRs averaging 78% of miles on EV.
Volts are at 71%.

Larger sample on Volts, but the numbers are the numbers.

One single figure doesn’t tell the whole story, by any means.

Odds are most of those Volt drivers use their car as their primary car. Odds are most of those ELR drivers have multiple cars, and use a gas guzzler when they need to take a longer trip.

So yeah, odds are that Volt drivers replace more gas-powered miles with electricity-powered miles.

It’s pretty telling that Volt drivers stop to recharge en route more often than Leaf drivers. That shows how dedicated they are to not using any more gasoline than they have to.

Lens!, I think that for a very rare occasion you fall off with that article.
It’s a 2012 statement and a lot has change since.
Moreover, Leafer didn’t stop much at that time to charge, because:
1- There were lot less place to charge, specially DCFC that they can use, contrary to Volt.
2- To charge “en route” you have to get there first, so It’s more a question of where you can go with a car that has no plan B.
In overall, I aggree that for the last reason Volt owner drive more electric miles, but just because they can drain the battery without any worries, exactly what the car was meant to adress.
I have a Leaf since 2012, put 79 000 km on it and still going fine, but I am very happy to see anything that use electricity instead of gas and volt is the best option for many people.

That1Guy

In the aggregate, of course – there are gobs more Volts than ELRs. And Volts are likely daily commuters vs. ELRs, which have more pleasure miles.

Still, the average ELR driver consumes a larger share of miles on electric than gas vs. Volt drivers.

That’s a fact backed up by voltstats, whether comparing the median or the average.

Scramjett

I’m not one for ordering a whole lot site unseen. For me, if the Volt is something that’ll work for us, I need to be certain by driving it around for a bit and bringing our biggest suitcase so we can gauge the usefulness of the cargo space.

I’ll also be looking for Alex Dykes’ review of the Volt when he gets a hold of one. I find his trunk comfort index very helpful in determining how useful the trunk is (he rated the C-Max Energi’s trunk 5/10, which I think is accurate).

Not sure. I enjoy the Volt i have right now but i really want a Tesla.

I just saw an 85 Model S, Pearl White, with sound, tech, air suspension, pano roof and 21″ Silvers Turbines on the CPO website in Atlanta listed for $58,200 and its now gone.

I had to change my pants when i saw that price. And now 30 minutes later it is gone… I am sad.

Sales for the rest of the world will be very low. GM at number 10 in the world wide sales.
