Chevrolet has announced European pricing for its Volt range-extender hybrid.
When it goes on sale in Germany at the end of this year, it will cost from 41,950 Euros (£36,000) and feature a leather interior as standard.
The Volt comes with an eight-year/100,000 mile warranty – as offered in the US - on its Voltec powertrain and lithium-ion battery pack, a deal that Chevrolet claims is the longest warranty for an electric vehicle.
Wayne Brannon, president of Chevrolet Europe, said: “We believe Volt is the best solution on the planet today for worry-free electric driving. Our price in Europe is based on the US Volt price adjusted for transportation cost, import duties, exchange rates and homologation.”
Right hand drive UK versions will be launched slightly later towards the beginning of 2012. As of yet, no pricing has been announced.
The Chevrolet Volt has been on sale in the US from 2010, with sales extended to Europe thanks to high demand. According to the company, 10,000 Volts will be built by the end of the 2011, with an additional 45,000 Volts produced during 2012.
