The Volt, Chevy's gasoline-assisted electric vehicle with a total range of up to 379 miles, is coming your way. Chevrolet dealers in all 50 states have begun taking orders for the 2012 Chevrolet Volt electric. But, hold on, there's more good news. The starting price is around $1,000 less than the 2011 model.

The suggested retail price of the Volt starts at $39,995 (reduced to $32,496 with a full federal tax credit of $7,500, which is subject to the customer's eligibility). The price, which includes an $850 destination freight charge, excludes tax, title and license fees.

Why the lower price? Expansion is key. Up until now, the Volt was only available in seven states and the District of Columbia.

With the expanded market comes a wider range of options. For 2012, consumers will be able to choose from seven option packages compared with only three for the 2011 model. A top of the line Volt, with leather appointments, backup camera, navigation system, premium paint and wheels comes in at $46,265 including delivery ($38,765 after the full tax credit).

"We are giving consumers greater choice of content as the Volt becomes available nationwide by the end of this year," said Cristi Landy, Volt marketing director. "This gives us the opportunity to be more flexible in our pricing and still provide additional high-tech content to customers who want to purchase it."

The Volt is also offering two more interior accents (white and Spiced Red) and two new exterior colors (Summit White and Blue Topaz Metallic).

Fresh features for 2012 include: standard keyless access with passive locking - the car automatically locks and unlocks with the key fob in close proximity of vehicle; OnStar turn-by-turn navigation standard for three years and available in-dash navigation system; Chevrolet MyLink including Bluetooth streaming audio for music and select phones; standard AM/FM stereo with CD player and MP3 playback and 7-inch color touch-screen display; and available 17-inch sport alloy wheels with black inserts.

Chevrolet will also continue to offer an eight-year/100,000-mile limited warranty on the Volt's 16-kWh lithium-ion battery along with a variety of other three to six year warranties.
