I haven't been able to find out a target price yet, but I did find this which I thought was interesting

GM has not stated a target price for the Volt, but the lithium-ion batteries alone would cost upward of $10,000 today!

35 grand in 2010 sounds about right. 39999 works too..considering the average new car today in 2008 costs 30 grand..

Whats another 5 or 10 grand to lead the charge to fuel efficiency.

I hope the warranty is at least 5 years 100,000 miles like other GM products..

Afterall it is new technology.

Would help if it were all inclusive for the 5 years considering yet again its all new technology and would justify the higher price of the initial purchase.

If it comes to $39,990 then has a $7,500 rebate then that puts in reach of a lot of people. $35000 would be even nicer though.

Not to mention the Mark UP that most dealers will be trying to get being greedy!

Chevy has released the Volt MSRP as $41 000.
Not bad considering your getting the first mass produced electric/gas car. Hopefully as time goes by they will get cheaper

Figure with your current electric rate what 8 KWH cost. That will take you about 35 miles in the Volt. Ask your electric utility if you can get a discount with a 240 V charger used only at night. Can you charge at your destination, say work, every day and how much?

For me at my current $0.07 KWH rate during the day and using $3.50 for a gallon of gas. I would increase my electric bill $11 a month but save $156 in gas a month. I believe I can get a lower rate if I charge only at night. My employer is installed 240 V charging stations that are free. So it is possible I may save an additional $11 per month.

Wouldn't that depend largely on your driving habits? Lots of city driving, short trips, you save a lot of gas, and maybe use none at all. If you consistently out drive the electric range, you mileage, and costs go up. Take a guesstimate of your driving profile, and do the math.
