The target volume of about 100,000 Volts per year is substantially more than production on the automaker's EV1. GM leased only about 800 EV1s during the course of that electric vehicle's life cycle, the automaker said. Although GM has not released ballpark figures on Volt pricing, Wilkinson said, "We want it to be a volume vehicle, not like the Tesla [Roadster]. We want it to be priced like a real car, not just one driven by guys in Silicon Valley."
GM intends to both sell and lease the Volt. It is also mulling whether to lease the Volt's batteries to help cut costs to the consumer.
