In doing so, GM has created an ultra-efficient vehicle that for many commuters, may require no gasoline at all. The Volt was intended to be a super-efficient car that also includes all the modern safety and convenience features expected from a modern 4-seater. The MSRP for the Volt starts around $40,000, but this price buys impr essive technology that is the first of its kind in the US, and running costs that some have estimated as low as 5.7-cents/mile. Volt buyers may be able to take advantage of federal and state tax credits as well, making this revolutionary car more affordable than its base price suggests.
