Re: How Much I Paid for My Bolt

Wed Sep 13, 2017 6:40 pm

I ran the numbers offline using publicly available money factor and residual information then shopped it around to about half a dozen SoCal dealerships.

Got a couple of responses back but only one dealership had the Kinetic Blue, which was our first choice color, other dealers had Cajun Red, which was the second choice.

There should be no reason why you cannot take the information I have provided and try to shop it around to other dealers in Southern California. I am reluctant to name the dealership at the moment because they still need to deliver several things to me so until they do, I am considering my transaction as not fully completed. Once they deliver the outstanding items, I'll share the dealer name.

MSRP $43,905
36 months/10k miles per year
Drive-off $320 (first month's payment)
$320.90 per month, taxes included for 35 payments



Nothing down? And before receiving the $3k in CA/PGE rebates?

If so, that's a pretty incredible deal! That's about what I'm paying for my LT w/$2k down (after the $3k in rebates)

Just leased our 2nd Bolt (first one was in April):

MSRP: $39,295 - LT with driver confidence, comfort and DC fast charge.
Adjusted cap cost: $29,994 after all discounts, incentives, rebates
Residual: $22,791
$1,000 out of pocket
15K miles, 36 months

$241.27/mo before taxes
$259.97/mo. including taxes

Should get $450 from SCE not expecting the $2500 from CA rebate.

Why on earth is Georgia leasing so high on this car? Everywhere I go here the lease prices are around $550 a month with 2-4K down payments

Where did you get this deal??...and why aren't you expecting the $2500 CA rebate? I know they ran out of $$, but won't you get it once CA puts more money in the pot?

Oh, can you list the incentives and discounts that you were able to get?

Thanks

Does GM actually want to lease this car out to people? Why does the lease pricing vary so much depending on what region you live in?

One guess is CARB credits. GM only gets them in certain states, so a sale (or lease) is more valuable to them there. Effectively, they are passing on that value to the customer.

For Georgia, part of the answer may be in this NYTimes article:

www.nytimes.com/2017/03/11/business/ene ... edits.html

"When Georgia repealed its generous $5,000 tax credit on electric vehicles in July 2015, and instead slapped a $200 registration fee on electric cars, sales quickly tumbled. In the month before the repeal, nearly 1,300 electric vehicles were sold in the state. By August, those sales had all but evaporated — to just 97 cars. It was a hint of what would come. Today, the economic incentives that have helped electric vehicles gain a toehold in America are under attack, state by state. ... Georgia offers an example of how some of these arguments played out. For a few years, attempts to repeal that state’s electric vehicle incentive, first introduced in the late 1990s, went nowhere. Then in 2015, the repeal was rolled into a larger transportation bill, which promised freshly paved roads and shored-up bridges. The bill passed, together with the repeal, with little debate on the incentive itself. ... Alfred Richner, a financial services worker in Atlanta ... planned to upgrade his Nissan Leaf in 2015. But that plan was foiled when he couldn’t track one down in Georgia before the tax credit expired. 'It’s a great car,' he said. 'I guess by then, everyone wanted it. And then it all stopped.'"

I have a Leaf in Ga and pay the lame 200$ yearly tax against EV's here, I was one of the last to get the State tax credit before Republicans pulled the entire thing and then insulted us by charging us $200 a year for using an EV. They literally said they were pulling the Tax credits cause they didn't want to give free cars to yuppies. I wanted to upgrade to a Bolt but am being priced out by GM.

I still want to know why it is so much here. The EV issues with the state of Ga still do not explain the outrageous lease pricing.

I can Lease any other Gas car in Ga that range from $30k-40k MSRP for between $300-400 a month lease.

The Bolt is not only an expensive Lease option compared to other states that lease the Bolt, it is expensive lease option compared to every other car in it's price range EV or not in Ga.

This is the issue I'm wondering about. I can literally Lease a Jag, Lexus or BMW for the same monthly payments on the Bolt here in Ga.
