GM’s Chevrolet division has announced that it is taking dealership orders for the new 2012 Volt in seven markets across Canada. The automaker reports that the new version of its plug-in hybrid vehicle will retail for $41,545 CAD.
The automaker says the green car will initially be available to consumers later this year, but only in the cities of Vancouver, Victoria, Toronto, Ottawa-Gatineau, Montreal, and Quebec City.
Chevrolet is hoping that the Volt will be available nation-wide in Canada by the end of 2012, and will have three versions available: the standard trim level, a premium package, and a model that is equipped with a rear camera and park assist technology.
Chevy notes as well that it is planning to unveil three smaller, fuel efficient vehicles in the coming months – the Orlando and Sonic, planned for the fall of this year, and the Spark which is planned for a 2012 debut.
