When GM announced that the new 2016 Chevrolet Volt would start from $33,995 earlier this week (details), the next question asked was "how much for the higher model - LTZ Volt and other trim options"

Thanks to a "Dora@Chevrolet" today via an impromptu Facebook chat on the next gen Volt, we have that answer

"The uplevel Volt (2LZ) will start at $38,345 including $825 DFC. Your Participating Chevrolet Volt Dealer was provided pricing over the weekend."

Basically this means that if you want features such as navigation, Cadillac’s Intellibeam headlights, Forward Collision Alert, Lane Keep Assist, Front Automatic Braking, rear seat heat and a ton of other features - your 2016 Volt will need the 2LZ package selected.   But if you don't need all the creature comforts, we suggest sticking with the base LT car.

(Check out an earlier post listing different standard and optional features between the LT and LTZ here)

During the conversation it was also announced Calilfornians will be the first to take delivery of the car, followed by select regions in the east, then nationally.  We expect first deliveries to be made in late Sept/early October, with the wider rollout to CT, MA, MD, ME, NH, NJ, NY, OR, RI & VT happening in November, followed by the unwashed masses in December.

The chat also had some other points of interest, which we have selected below:
