After giving us the EPA estimate on the range of their new electric hatchback, GM has now revealed the official pricing of the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV. The car has two base prices as it goes on sale sporting a price tag of $37,495. But it is eligible federal tax credit of up to $7,500, so you could potentially get it for $29,995.
30 grand is still a lot of money for a small and fairly weak city car, but even that price is not attainable for some people as the federal tax credit depends wholly on the individual tax situation. So yes, in reality, the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV is a 38 grand car. And we don’t know, but that’s kind of like paying $100 for a salad when for 40 bucks you can have the juiciest, most delicious porterhouse steak. Sure, the salad is healthier and makes you look kind of sophisticated, but the meat makes a lot more sense as it’s more nutritious and more enjoyable to eat.
But if your heart is set on the salad, the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV comes as standard (on LT trim) with Regen on Demand steering wheel paddle, rear vision camera, 10.2-inch diagonal color touch screen and MICHELIN Self-sealing tires. Range-topping Premier version adds to that leather-appointed seats, front and rear heated seats, surround camera and rear camera mirror.
