Chevy Volt Charging Station Cheaper Than Nissan Leaf’s

Chevrolet has announced the price of a charging station for the Chevy Volt, and the initial price of $490 sounds good at first, take the $1,475 installation fee into consideration and the bill is much more. However, it has been noted that although this adds up to just under $2000, it is still slightly cheaper than the home charging station for the Nissan Leaf.

Chevrolet’s Voltec charging station is just one of a number of models due for release once the Volt goes on sale. The standard household 120V charging unit will take 10 hours to charge the Volt, whereas the Voltec 240V solution does it in four hours.

We understand that $1,475 is a lot of money for a company to charge to install something, but when it comes to electricity — safety is the number one priority.

Are you happy to pay that kind of money, or would you much rather stick with the cheaper but slower standard version? For more details visit Green Autoblog.
