First 100 Limited Edition Chevrolet Volt Package

Yesterday, I came home to find an unexpected cardboard box – on the outside was a Chevrolet Volt logo and it was sent from Michigan.  Normally I know all the “Volt” related packaging coming to my door as I am the one to order them – but this one came as a complete and pleasant surprise.

I opened it up to find a very special commemorative package.  Inside the Custom designed magnetic flip open box was a special plaque noting that I had purchased one of the first 100 Chevrolet Volts and showing the vin number: 1G1RD6E4XBU100010.

Inside it was also a note from Rick Scheidt, Vice President of Marketing for Chevrolet.

“Dear Patrick,

You know you are among a select group of Chevrolet Volt Owners.  But what you might not know is that you own one of the first 100 Volt models on the market.  Attached you’ll find a commemorative plaque.  Feel free to frame this keepsake, or display it in a special place.  For years to come, you can let people know you are a trailblazer when it comes to the future of transportation.  So welcome to the elite group of the Volt 100!


Rick Scheidt”

In addition, there was a special limited edition book of “Charging into the Future” by Larry Edsel and a Cisco “Flip HD Camera”  See in the unboxing video below.

The thought itself was great and it really made me feel special as a customer that someone put together this fine package with custom artwork.  There is something to be said about “paying attention to details” and taking care of the customer.  This being the first Chevrolet I have owned – they have certainly made a great impression.

For all the things that have gone wrong with the American automobile industry in the last few years, its great to see that someone has finally got the message and that Chevrolet is starting to return to the fundamentals.  Namely that if you take care of the customers, they’ll take care of you.  Instead of cutting corners for short term profits, there is actually a goal of long term retention.

    Cool. I’m looking forward to getting it. I missed out on the swag (t-shirts, etc.) given out at some of the early Volt test drives.

    Although my Volt #898, I received a similar package in the mail last week. The note is slightly different. The rest seems to be the same. I wonder who all will be getting this “collectors package.”

      Hi Tommy Boy:
      I just bought # 2169 on April 5th and just yesterday I also receive the nice welcome package. It is quite a well put together book, flip camera, etc.

    We purchased #2266 on 4/9/11 and received our package yesterday. We do not have the plaque but the rest seems the same. Pretty cool!

    I also received my package in yesterday’s mail. This car and the treatment I’ve received from the start are amazing. I’ve owned numerous very high end cars in my life from a Ferrari, a handful of assorted top of the line Porsche vehicles as well as a few very expensive Mercedes Benz models.. I honestly have to say that this Volt is by far the most amazing car I have ever owned. I am approaching the 1,000 mark and I’ve used 3.5 gallons of fuel. Driving this car is a pleasure..
