My currently lease is ending soon and I need a car for replacement. I just missed the 2021 EV Bolt $147/month $0 down deal. Here’s what I got for now
Option 1: 2021 Chevrolet Bolt EV
Selling Price: $45,235
Rebate Total: $13,900 (which is a lot)
Monthly Payment with $2,000 down: $326 (Tax included, 36m,10,000)
Option 2: 2022 EV Bolt
Rebate Total: $4,500
Monthly payment with $3,500 down pay = $322.3 (Tax included, 36m,10,000)
I know the 2021 bolt msrp is wayyyyyy too over priced, but it is really hard to catch the last deal since costco’s rebate ends on Aug 2. Does it make sense for me to go for the 2021? Or should I pay just a little more and get the 2022 bolt? Or are there any other good EV (I don’t really care which model or brand it is) deals out there? Thank you very very much! Appreciate it!
Yikes, both terrible deals. The dealer is trying to sell you a 2021 over MSRP?
As you’ve noted, you’d be paying well over double what many others paid for these as recently as a few months ago. And trust me, the older Bolt isn’t a $350+/mo car. What’s the EUV going for? At least that has a fresh design.
Look into Niro EV or Kona EV. I think they are better alternatives than Bolt at the same price point if not cheaper lately (VS 2022 EUV).
The ONLY reason Bolt was fire is they were dirt cheap to the point that they could almost be free
I see quite a few on Cargurus, not sure if they are still actually in stock.
'20s does make great leases. Niro has like $14k incentives plus the $1,500, if there’s any decent discount to be had it’s sub $300 range with inceptions due
