GM Plans Special Edition Volt for California
General Motors Co. plans to bring a special version of the Chevrolet Volt to the California market that will qualify the plug-in hybrid sedan for a $1,500 state rebate and a coveted carpool lane sticker.
The Volt, which the automaker has made the poster child for its environmental credentials, has sold slower in California than its all-electric rival, the Nissan Leaf -- in part because it previously did not qualify as a vehicle solo drivers could use in the state’s network of time-saving carpool lanes.
GM said that next month it will begin shipping a special version of the car with a "low emissions package" that satisfies the requirements of the California Air Resources Board, with sales to start the following month.
