I know anything below MSRP is a good deal :p but what is a great deal.


My dealer has a black base model for $39,995.00 with $1563.89 discount. Does that sound like a good deal or should I shop around for a lower MSRP with more extras. I really want a navigation system and a few other extras with $5000 off MSRP... That sounds like a good deal to me. ;)

The best I've seen are the ~$5k off offers in CA, if you don't care about HOV lanes. Those are going to go away in the next few weeks, though - they are dealers clearing the remaining non-HOV inventory. I suspect we'll be seeing a demand limited MSRP or higher environment for HOV Volts for at least a couple months...

That's what I told the dealer..That other dealers are offering 5k off.
I asked if he can price match 5k off MSRP and he said he can.

I really don't care about carpool lanes because I avoid the freeways after 5pm. +
Electric charge would be perfect for me since I travel less than 40 miles round trip and my gym has a charging station outside too. :-)

The dealer I ordered from (read: took over an incoming allocation from) started with "we're selling at $5K over MSRP on the HOV Volts" and finished at "$300 over invoice" about 45 minutes later. I suspect that they will be less willing to deal on the base model cars (I wanted fully loaded). They have about 30 cars incoming in the March timeframe, so ...

If you don't care about HOV access or $1500 California rebate, Penske Chevrolet in Buena Park has loaded volts for $5750 off MSRP (all have Navigation and Leather). Ask for Paul Munoz 714-868-4044

Invoice on a base model is $38,429, so you are essentially getting invoice. You can probably get a larger discount on a car with more options, but you probably won't get much lower on a base model.

What is the 1500 rebate? I want a car just like yours but silver or gray. Bose and nav for sure. Paul was the one that helped you?

With Bose and Nav, you can probably get more like $3K+ off MSRP while the base invoice, as others said, is 38400 or so. Options are marked up enough that there is more room to play with in the negotiations. I suspect "fuly loaded" are easy to get at 4-5K off MSRP with dealers willing to move them at invoice.

I wouldn't be to picky, with gas prices rising, it would not take much in sales to say goodbye to any below MSRP deals, whom ever got the deals from mid Jan to mid Feb 2012 will be the low price mark for sometime. Once gas hits 4.00+ it will be like the last time gas went over 4.00 and people were paying way over invoice for the Prius

If anyone is in the Northern CA area, we (Abel Chevrolet in Rio Vista, CA 94571) are offering 3 fully loaded 2012 Volts (non HOV) at $5000 under MSRP. They can be seen at www.driveabel.com There is also one 2011 demo model for $5250 under MSRP and the MSRP was lower for 2011 so it's a crazy deal. Anyway, I thought I would throw that out there. If you are interested, give me a call at 925-603-3845 and ask for Chris Di Maggio
