At yesterday’s introduction of the production-ready Chevy Bolt, GM hedged the specific price but in launching its consumer webpage, the automaker says it will definitely sell for $37,500 including delivery, and before incentives.
This otherwise official info precedes any more formal announcement which may pin on a price of a few dollars less, but the disclosure confirms what had been strongly hinted until now.
A $37,500 price furthermore was the goal all along. For that, Chevrolet is offering an electric car with range to be over 200 miles, although its EPA ratings are among other critical numbers yet to announced.
As it is, 200-plus could double the best Nissan has to offer with regards to range per doller. The 2016 Leaf has been boosted this year with 107 miles range, and asking price is $35,050-and-up for the refreshed five-year-old car.
Thus far, more positive commentary than not has come forth for GM’s first purpose built nationally marketed EV, and it’s hoped to move the plug-in market into greater relevancy for numerous consumers who’ve held out for more.
Just as relevant, in markets like California and others where state subsidies are available, even before dealer discounts the Bolt could net within the mid-high 20s scope people now pay for the world’s best-selling green car, the Toyota Prius.
