has reported an original interview with GM advanced technology engineer Nick Zielinksi.

Zielinski was asked if the second generation Chevy Volt would have a price goal around $20,000 and stated "you’re pretty much describing our plans for Gen 2. Looking to improve efficiency, maintain performance, take cost out of the car and how can we broaden Voltec technology to other vehicles."

It appears GM is working hard in their future development primarily to bring the cost of the car down, since the initial versions are likely to be priced close to $40,000. Strategies to do so involve improve the batteries efficiency, and expectations that prices will be reduced through volume production both of the cells and the packs.
