If someone of you likes plug-in cars, he won't be surprised by the new 2017 Bolt EV 's price, which starts at $37,495. That is not such a big number actually, comparing to Tesla's green cars, which will cost you much more.
After subtracting the maximum federal tax of $7,500, the car comes to a whisker shy of $30k. Is that a really high price considering the Chevrolet's new electric car will cost around $29,995 when will go on sale later this year. General Motors is still keeping in secret all of the trim levels for the Bolt EV, but as long as we know that the base LT model will come with the Regen on Demand steering wheel paddles, a rear vision camera and a 10.2-inch color touch screen, we're pretty satisfied with that. You will also see on it a Premier trim level, that adds heated seat front and back, leather-appointed seats, surround camera and a fancy rear camera mirror that puts the rear camera view in your rear-view mirror. The Bolt EV will have an official EPA range of 238 miles per charge.
Through the end of August, GM sold 103,045 Volts so far. Add in a few Cadillac ELRs and Chevy Spark EVs and you've still got quite a ways to go before The General hits the 200,000-vehicle limit. That's when the tax credit will start to decline for GM plug-in vehicle buyers. Don't be surprised if the Bolt gets a price drop to match.
