Chevy To Pull The Plug On the Volt In 2022? 26
Posted by Carscoops Staff in Chevrolet, Chevrolet Volt, Reports on 12 26th, 2017

General Motors has an ambitious plan to introduce 20 new electric vehicles by 2023. That may or may not include its core PHEV, however, as reports suggest that the Chevy Volt will be discontinued in 2022.

What isn’t clear however, is whether that means the current Volt will be replaced with a continuation of itself, replaced with something different, or discontinued altogether.

Chevrolet first introduced the Volt in 2010, and replaced it with the current second-generation model in 2015. Based on that six-year product cycle, 2022 doesn’t seem like an abbreviated lifespan before the current model will need replacing.

Volt sales in America have hovered around 20,000 units per year since 2012 – a little more some years, and little less in others.

The model has, however, bread several others that have been discontinued completely. The Cadillac ELR coupe was phased out in 2016, and the Opel/Vauxhall Ampera – which was essentially a rebadged version of the Volt – was also replaced last year by the smaller Bolt-based Ampera-e.

Whatever the fate of the Volt itself, what’s clear is that GM will continue expanding its electrified offerings in the coming years – whatever form they take and nameplate they wear.
