CHEVY VOLT UPDATE: GM’s Affordable Wall Charger Costs A Lot To Install. “For the record, the Chevy Volt can plug into any old 120 volt wall socket and be fully charged in ten hours. Those looking for a bit more efficiency might opt for the wall charger, which alone costs just $490. So if you’re a skilled electrician and have the certification, you can install it yourself and you’re ready to go. For the rest of us, installation will cost around $1,475, bringing total costs closer to $2,000. Yikes! And this is for a car that goes just 25 to 50 miles on an electric charge.”

Now those figures have been revised to a 25- to 50-mile all-electric range, depending on driving conditions and driver behavior.”
