First 4,400 Chevrolet Volt buyers might get free home charging stations |

In case you’re bent on buying the upcoming Chevrolet Volt extended-range electric vehicle, then you’re in luck. It seems that the Department of Energy will be holding a separate promotion, through which the first 4,400 Volt owners will be getting a free 240-volt home charging station.

There’s a gimmick though, as it seems that in exchange for the free charger, which retails for around $2,000, the DOE wants to collect data from the early buyers, in order to understand just what is needed for a more widespread electric vehicle use.

The special 240V chargers will be made by ECOtality (2,600) and Coulomb Technologies (1,800). The two companies are also working with other EV manufacturers, like Nissan or Ford.

Expect more details about the how the offer works to be made available when the Volt hits the market this fall.
