2019 Chevrolet Volt

We’ve already seen the list of changes in store for the 2019 Chevrolet Volt. Now, we’ve got details on the plug-in hybrid’s new price tag as well.

When the 2019 Chevrolet Volt LT goes on sale this fall, its base MSRP will rise $300, from $34,095 to $34,395. That includes a destination fee but doesn’t include options.

To take the sting out of those price increases, Volt buyers can apply a generous $7,500 federal tax credit for electric vehicles. However, that credit might not be around much longer. It only applies to the first 200,000 such vehicles sold by an automaker. Chevrolet parent General Motors has already sold more than 186,000 to date.

What will new Volt buyers get for their money? Along with outstanding efficiency (42 mpg combined), 53 miles of all-electric range, and a fun-to-drive feel, the 2019 model features a new 7.2-kilowatt charging system that halves charging time. This new system is available on the LT and standard on the Premier.

The 2019 Volt also offers a new energy-management app, new regenerative brake settings, and temperature optimization for the automatic heating system. Interior upgrades include a new available six-way power driver’s seat, a new digital rearview camera, and redesigned cloth seat patterns. The pedestrian alert system has been updated, and there’s also a new tire fill alert. Volt drivers gain the ability to toggle between regular cruise control and Adaptive Cruise Control.

The 2019 Volt also gets a couple of appearance upgrades, including an available blackout package and a new Pacific Blue Metallic exterior color.
