I live in remote delaware (this is the opposite of California), and talked to the sales manager of a large dealership yesterday. He was told by the Chevy rep to expect to be given a Bolt allocation (to order from) by the end of the year. My order will be part of his allocation order. My experience with this kind of new niche model orders, suggest that delivery will take 6 weeks or so.

A Bolt being assembled at the Orion assembly plant. The photo shows a battery pack being installed. I kind of doubt this photo is from the future.

Did you get any pricing on the Bolt.

I am not feeling too bad now having leased a 2016 last year. These guys are unbelievable! They did not change almost anything for 2017. Wow!

Over at the Bolt forum they are sharing order details. The orders are being taken at MSRP, although Costco supposedly has a deal for less.

I expect I will pay MRSP and no dealer surcharges. This is similar to previous purchases I have made with specialty cars.

Heated seats/ steering wheel is extra. So maybe $39,000? I can only take $4500 of the federal tax credit. So I would be at $34,500 for a Bolt. Or I can lease, then buy a Leaf S30 for $21,000 without having to file for any credits.

Most or all of the Bolts allocated to climates like ours will have the 'comfort package', which is about $500, already installed, as it is with the Volts. Sadly, I need the Surround View, and so will have to look at Bolt Premieres only, at about $43k, because that option isn't available on the LT. Still, if it comes down to leasing an unchanged Leaf SV for $250 a month or leasing a Bolt Premiere for $375, I'll take the latter. Maybe when we get Uber I'll take a few fares a month to make up the difference.
