Well we finally have it. Pricing for the all-new 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV.
Chevrolet confirms the EV will be priced from $37,495, including destination charges. Depending on tax situations, some customers can receive a federal $7,500 tax credit which drops the price to $29,995.
The Bolt’s price presumably makes it more expensive than Tesla’s first mass-market electric vehicle the Model 3. It has an estimated $35,000 starting price before federal tax credits. However, the Model 3 isn’t expected to go into production until sometime next year.
Last week, Chevy also surprised everyone by announcing the Bolt would make an EPA-rated 238-miles on a full charge. That’s a fair bit above the 200-mile mark first promised. Once again if you’re comparing, the Tesla Model 3 is in the 215-range. (But we imagine CEO Elon Musk is working on that one right now.)
The Bolt’s base LT trim comes with standard features that include a Regen on Demand steering wheel paddle, rear vision camera, 10.2-inch diagonal color touch screen and MICHELIN Self-sealing tires (in certain circumstances). The top Premier trim adds leather-appointed seats, front and rear heated seats, surround camera and rear camera mirror.
The Bolt EV rolls in to select dealerships in late 2016.
