Sub $250 month lease - when will it happen?

Sat Jul 22, 2017 4:26 pm

I've always suspected this car would be HOT at under $250 a month (Chevy may have blown a huge opportunity for free promotion and building huge market goodwill by not offering this out of the gate - but they continue to prove shortsighted greedy instead of long term greedy). It seems the market agrees.

Here are some posts of what people are paying for these cars currently (ALL IN PER MONTH NET COST - INCLUDING INCENTIVES)

DC Fast charge
Comfort & Convenience Pkg
Driver Confidence PKG
Floor mats
False cargo floor
$39,535 Sticker (Includes $875 destination charge)

Lease: 12K miles/ year $2,200 down (includes first payment, tax, title, dealer fees, etc) Payment = 35 X $250.87

This was on June 5th, as the month of June progressed I now see local (upstate NY) dealers advertising Bolt LT for $209 & $219/month with $2000 down but only 10K miles / year and no DC fast charge option. The link below still shows last weeks lease price of $239, but the current add (6/24/17) shows $219.

NY state offers $2000 off of the Bolt that is applied to reduce the lease payments and requires NY state residency verification among several other restrictions.

$8,313 over 3 years is correct.
$11,313 is before the $3,000 in rebates.
Including the $395 disposition fee as well, total is $8,708 over three years = $242/month.

I did get multiple bids from three other dealers to get to this price and $0 down deal, but both Paul Duran at Capitol Chevy in San Jose and Tim Gelling at Greenwood Chevy in Hollister were close. Went with Greenwood because they had the Gray color and the False cargo floor option in stock.

Estimating I'll save another $30 to $60 a month with electricity vs premium gas compared to what my Audi costs to do the same commute. Will probably replace the Audi with another Bolt before the end of the year. After only 5 days with the vehicle I can't believe it is so inexpensive for how great it is.




What NET MONTHLY are others seeing out there?

Thank you very much for posting your numbers ...they helped me immensely in negotiating my lease. I signed the following today:

Chevy Bolt LT
DCQC
Comfort + Convenience
Driver Safety 1
15K miles p.a
$0 down (incl tax, security, fees, lic, doc, other nonsense)
$284/mth w/tax

Done at Momentum Chevrolet, San Jose. --> ask for Peter Julius ...very smooth transaction and no pressure.

Optional: I got the lease wear & tear for $595 as I have seen enough number of dings and scratches on my Fit EV.

$150 month/$2100 first payment, hot seats, blind spot, trailer hitch, winter mats, CCS, 12k. (Hot seats & hitch my only "must haves". Hitch is why I'm pushing my T3 resi - plus I'd prefer 4wd)

Really happy, even ok with uncomfortable seats at this price. Truly awesome car.

Friend got premium car, not sure what extras besides CCS or miles, $200 month/$2300 out door.

I don't agree. GM offers nationally advertised prices, states offer incentives that change the calculus. GM derives more benefit from selling EVs in CARB states, that is just how it works. Currently at 3K units a month I also believe that they are production constrained and still selling the vehicle below cost by about $7K to build the market.

My friend in Ohio went and checked out the car at my encouragement.

They're lowest offer was just over $500 per month. Turned him cold on the car. In his mind he was comparing the car to a BMW at that price and it was coming up majorly wanting.

This math isn't hard.

I'm paying what calculates to $209, and the significant difference is NY's $2000 rebate. At this price I don't think anything can compete. The car is all kinds of amazing, even with the uncomfortable front seats. It is a really great car for the price.

People understand state rebates, but expect some correlation. $2000 extra rebate and $10,800 ($300 x 36) higher cost are completely different planets, not correlated at all in his or my minds.

I oversimplified, it is not just the state rebate, it is the value of a 2017 ZEV to GM in NY VS Ohio

"...."travel provision" in the ZEV rules through 2018 that essentially allows carmakers to earn ZEV credits in every state for a zero-emission vehicle that's sold in any ZEV-Program state.

I don't know if this is real or BS, here:

https://u5080173.ct.sendgrid.net/wf/cli ... DNCQ-3D-3D

that is $5500 total. (2000 + 100 x 35) before CA rebates

in San Jose's Capital Chevy in CA.
