This still seems a little high to me:
General Motors on Tuesday put the base price of its Chevrolet Volt, a plug-in car capable of driving about 40 miles on battery power without using gasoline, at $41,000 before a $7,500 federal tax credit.
The Nissan Leaf, a fully electric car that goes on sale in December, will have a starting price of $32,780.
G.M. had kept the Volt’s price a secret since introducing the model as a concept more than three years ago, though executives had hinted that it would cost about $40,000.
The price is substantially more than the starting price of $32,780 for the Nissan Leaf, a fully electric car that goes on sale in December.
The sticker price of a Toyota Prius, the popular hybrid car, is $23,560 to $35,000, depending upon options.
Then again, maybe 33k (after the tax credit) is about right for a full sized sedan.
