    NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- General Motors announced Friday a cheaper, stripped-down version of its Chevrolet Volt plug-in hybrid for the 2012 model year.

    The base price of a 2011 Volt is $41,000 while the base price of the 2012 Volt will be a little lower: $39,995. To make up for that $1,005 price drop, the base Volt will no longer have navigation -- although it will still have the computer touch-screen -- and it won't have the upmarket Bose stereo.

    Same here and I don't see that the price went down that much. Add to that you will still have to charge it each day and the way energy prices are how much are you really saving?

    When they announced the new Volt I said it was way overpriced.

    Well, at least jettisoning the crappy Bose sound system is a big plus.

    I thought the sound system was pretty good; what's the matter with it?
