Various sources are currently reporting that dealers over in California are dropping the pricing of the newly-released Chevy Bolt by as much as 10 percent.
If that didn’t sound drastic enough, some are reportedly listing the all-new Bolt below the initial MSRP of $37,500. With the inclusion of the $7,500 federal tax credit and the $2,500 California rebate, some buyers can own a spanking new Bolt EV for under $25,000!
According to the many reports, this move was taken in order to push out more sales for Chevy’s latest EV model. But, could that be the entire truth?
Well, folks over at Reddit forums have a different opinion. Some believe that these dealers are only bringing down the Bolt’s pricing as a bait to bring buyers into their dealerships.
Many commentors described their own instances of when they walked into a dealer to buy a particular model of car but the salesperson was practically forcing them to purchase something entirely different.
Dealers often do this as they make minimum profit on the sales of new cars but rake in maximum profit on sales of used cars along with maintenance and warranty work. On top of that, these dealers may be desperate to wipe out their remaining stocks stashed in their inventory.
On a similar note, it appears that the 2017 Chevy Bolt may not be as great as advertised as some folks are reporting that they changed their minds on making that purchase when they saw how narrow and quite uncomfortable the seats were.
