Official pricing information for the 2017 Chevy Bolt EV has now been revealed, bringing with it no real surprises. The starting price in the US is $37,495 and the starting price in Canada is CAD$42,795. With current conversion rates, though, that Canadian price is actually about USD$5,000 lower than the US price.
Once incentives are factored in, of course, the effective purchase pricing can be quite a bit lower in many places — as low as CAD$31,434 (not including destination charges) in Ontario (Canada) and $24,995 in Colorado (US).
These numbers are, importantly, not inclusive of the destination freight charges, which will add another grand or so, depending on the market (CAD$1,600 in Canada).
The President of GM North America and leader of Global Chevrolet, Alan Batey, commented on the pricing: “Value is a hallmark for Chevrolet and the pricing of the Bolt EV proves we’re serious about delivering the first affordable EV with plenty of range for our customers. We have kept on our promise yet again, first on range and now on price.”
Pulled from a Canadian press release on the matter: “The base LT trim starts at an MSRP of $42,795 and comes with standard features that include, among others, Regen on Demand steering wheel paddle, rear vision camera, 10.2” diagonal colour touch-screen and MICHELIN Self-sealing tires. The top trim Premier includes all LT equipment plus additional standard features such as leather-appointed seats, front and rear heated seats, surround camera, and rear camera mirror. The Bolt EV will be arriving at Canadian dealerships in early 2017.”
