With the Chevy Bolt launch nearing, more and more information has begun to surface about the long-range electric hatchback. Some of that is new pricing information apparently revealed for the first time (as far as EV bloggers know) by a Chevy dealer in Norman, Oklahoma — in particular, option pricing for the base price LT ($37,495), and for the “Premier” ($41,780).

Chevy has yet to confirm these prices, it should be noted, but they appear to be solid going by what’s been revealed to date.

Here’s the new option pricing information for the 2017 Chevy Bolt EV, courtesy of GM-Volt.com:

2017 Bolt EV LT

• Driver confidence package – $495
• Comfort and convenience package – $555
• Rear cargo storage shelf – $100

2017 Bolt EV Premier

• Driver confidence II – $495
• Infotainment package – $485

Common options

• Kinetic Blue, Cajun Red, Orange Burst paint colors – $395
Aluminum sill plates – $85
• DC charging – $750 (this was disclosed previously)
• Extra portable charge cord – $535

Limit promotional pricing

• Universal tablet holder (2) mounting behind front headrests for rear seat entertainment
– $115
• All-weather floor mats – $140
• All-weather cargo mat – $110

That’s more or less what would be expected, considering GM’s option pricing strategies for most of its other models.


Beyond this information, not much else is known yet — release timing for the 2017 Chevy Bolt is still rather uncertain. Deliveries are supposedly going to begin before the end of the year, but initial quantities and markets are uncertain. Will initial deliveries be only in California and Oregon? Only for Lyft drivers? In what sorts of quantities? When does actual order configuration begin? We’ll keep you posted.
