and second I believe the ELR is the LAST car caddy AND voltec need right now and a large LUX sedan/coupe on voltec (XTS/Omega) cross
What are the current tax incentives on the volt anyway?
At 20to 30 grand. .......practicality makes a large portion of buying decision. At 40 large passion becomes a larger factor in the buying decision....
At least in my opinion...in this economy....I believe after the techies buy their volts each month there begins the need for economics to play a role so if I remember correctly the lease deals are subsidized where the out of pocket costs are tax tags license and $300 to $310 a month which is a killer deal.
Hope this helps
Btw. The ELR should invoke enough passionn to drive segment sales to expected levels for a 60 grand two door.
Four door coupe would have been just as sexy and sold in higher volumes but maybe that's for the next generation
ever since it became clear that the Leaf wasnt performing as well as Volt on a consistent basis the media stopped comparing sales of the two. No one talks about Leaf sales projections but I guarantee you its coming nowhere near those projections. When the leaf first came out people were so certain it was a no brainer vs the Volt, it was a pure electric car and it was thousands cheaper. Turns out that the extended range of the Volt was more desirable than the pundits predicted. On top of that the Leaf's price jumped and chevy made the Volt slightly cheaper.
A weather guy here in Connecticut bought one and here is the story from the station's website http://dennishouse.wordpress.com/201...w-of-the-volt/
Toyota lost money on every 1st generation Prius, but fortunately for them they stuck with it, and 15 years later make money on each Prius they sell (and they sell considerably more now).
Unfortunately, IMHO, we Americans seemed to be too focused on immediate results (in all areas of life - home, cars, savings, government, etc) rather than keeping one eye on the present and one eye on the future.

Around here, you can get a new Volt for $0 down and $249/month...just goes to show if you make it cheap enough (or make the deal cheap enough), people will buy it. Why do you think Toyota sells so many Corollas and Camrys each month?

And she got the same discount as anyone can get walking in off the street, if they are a good negotiator.
The dealer has 3, 220 volt charging stations set up in their lot. All out front where everyone can see. Good thinking....
