Thailand Won’t Get the 2016 Chevy Volt
Thailand is joining Europe and Australia as the latest market that won’t get the 2016 Chevy Volt, according to a report from the Bangkok Post. It’s not really a reflection on the quality of the Volt, but more on the absurdly high cost of the imported electric car.
While a limited number of first-gen Volts received good reviews from the Thai press, the vehicle’s actual price tag would have been a whopping 3 million Thai Baht, which is the equivalent of $92,000 US.

By contrast, Toyota has had some success with its Prius hybrid, thanks to the fact that it produces some Prii within the borders of Thailand.
The Volt, which sold as the Opel Ampera in Europe and the Holden Volt in Australia, won’t be returning to those two locales in 2016, either.
