And you thought the Chevy Volt was a bit expensive in the U.S. For Americans, the car's MSRP is $39,145. But get this: GM's halo car is about to go on sale in eight cities in China, and the cost is RMB 498,000 ($78,276 U.S. at today's exchange rate). So, yes, you can buy one Volt in China or two in the U.S. for almost exactly the same amount of money – tax incentives and other offers notwithstanding.

General Motors recently confirmed it would develop an electric vehicle platform in China. Now, reports hint that GM vice chairman Steve Girsky stated that this electrified platform will draw upon the technology found in the Chevrolet Volt. Additionally, GM chairman and CEO Dan Akerson reportedly confirmed that future Chevy Volts might be built in China in order to qualify for subsidies of around $19,000 per vehicle.
