Being discontinued has its perks.
When an automaker discontinues one of its models, dealerships often offer massive discounts just to clear out excess inventory. Such is the case with the Chevy Volt. Chevy's once-promising plug-in vehicle was discontinued earlier in 2019 along with several other General Motors vehicles. Volt sales plummeted in the first quarter of 2019, with just 2,520 units sold, so Chevy needs a strategy to get rid of cars on dealer lots.
In order to entice people to buy a Volt, Chevy is offering huge discounts on 2019 models and leftover 2018 models. According to Chevy's website, you can now score up to 18% off a leftover 2018 Volt or around $3,000 off MSRP on a 2019 model.
Other deals include a $279 per month lease for 39 months, $3,000 customer cash on a 2018 or 2019 Volt, and $1,000 cash plus 0% APR for 72 months. There are some disclaimers attached to these deals, including that buyers must take delivery by May 31, 2019.
As always with deals of this nature, don't just assume you are going to get exactly what is advertised until you go into the dealership to confirm. But if you are able to score 18% off a Volt, it could be an amazing bargain for an excellent car.
A base 2019 Volt LT starts at $34,095, so an 18% discount would amount to a $26,594 price. This is a fantastic value for a car with a 53-mile electric range and a 42-mpg average when running on the 1.5-liter engine. If you are in the market for an economical car and don't care about buying one that's been discontinued, we recommend going out to buy a Volt right now.
