You see that? It’s my face turning bright red. See, I was quite wrong about the reason behind the 2012 Chevy Volt price drop. I had originally figured the reason was due to cheaper component prices / manufacturing efficiency. Turns out, I didn’t do my homework.
Chevy actually cut quite a bit of standard equipment from the 2012 Volt.
According to The Motley Fool, both the navigation system and Bose audio system are now optional. That’s $2500 worth of equipment, but the MSRP only dropped by $1k. That, my friends, is sneaky.
Hat tip to my best reader, who wishes to remain anonymous.
