June 11, 2013: wow, this guy is a shill for the US auto industry. He's about as credible as Art Carney, Mr Obama's spokeperson.
WNEW is reporting:
The price of the 2013 models will be cut by $4,000. Those incentives are in addition to a $7,500 federal tax credit.
The final cost will be just under $30,000. That would put the Volt in the price range of the Nissan Leaf and plug-in Toyota Prius and Ford C-Max models.
The price drop comes after sales of the Volt dipped another 4 percent in May.The big story, however, is the California mandate that 15% of automobiles sold in that state must be EVs, by some year, 2015, 2020, I forget. One of two things are going to happen: a) the law will be changed; or, b) very, very inexpensive ObamaCars will be given away.
Oh, electric golf carts will be part of the 15% mandate. Problem solved. My hunch: the new Apple R2D2 desktop computer will power golf carts in the future.
