2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV Priced From $37,495, Full Incentives Cut MSRP to $29,995
The Chevrolet Bolt is not the most affordable EV in the United States, though
Chevrolet is keeping the 2017 Bolt EV in the spotlight by announcing pricing information for its full-electric vehicle. The automaker has confirmed a base Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price of $37,495, including destination charge.
Depending on individual tax situations, customers may receive an available federal tax credit of up to $7,500, cutting the Bolt EV's net value to $29,995. Still, the Bolt is $2,500 more expensive than the upcoming Tesla Model 3, expected to arrive in dealerships in late 2017 with a starting price of $35,000 (before incentives). Not to mention that the 2016 Nissan Leaf starts at $29,010 before federal tax savings.
Available at select dealerships in late 2016, the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV will offer two trim levels, LT and Premier. The entry-level LT trim includes standard features such as Regen on Demand steering wheel paddle, rear vision camera, 10.2-inch diagonal color touch screen and Michelin Self-sealing tires. The range-topping Premier trim includes all LT equipment and adds leather upholstery, heated front and rear seats, surround camera, and rear camera mirror.
"Value is a hallmark for Chevrolet and the pricing of the Bolt EV proves we're serious about delivering the first affordable EV with plenty of range for our customers. We have kept our promise yet again, first on range and now on price," said Alan Batey, president of GM North America.
The 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV has an EPA-rated driving range of 238 miles (383 km).
