See, Americans are not so different from Canadians. In fact, when we take a look at the 2014 Chevy Volt, we're exactly the same ... in our price drops anyway. Just as the US 2014 Volt got a $5,000 price drop last week, Chevrolet Canada has announced that the Volt up north will see a similar reduction. Sorry, the same price reduction.

In the US, the 2014 Volt will start at $34,995 (*including $810 for destination), when it goes on sale. While the US and Canadian dollars are roughly equal now ($1 Canadian equals 97 cents in the US today), the starting price for the Canadian Volt will be CDN$36,895, plus a $1,600 destination fee. The US has a $7,500 federal tax credit available nationwide, some provinces in Canada offer government incentives that range from $5,000 to $8,231. So, it all sort of comes out in the wash.

According to Hybrid Cars, the Volt is the best-selling plug-in vehicle in Canada, "outselling all plug-ins and EV's in 2012 combined. Reduced prices are the name of the game in the plug-in vehicle game these days, which has some interesting side effects for things like pick-ups.
