Yea I was thought it worked like a rebate because I wont get back much from the tax credit since I don't owe much.
I was wondering what you think about the Bolt vs Hyundai Ioniq and Kia Niro? I was really interesting in the Bolt because its electric but I don't like the 3 year basic warranty. I wished it was longer.How have you liked it so far?
It has nothing to do w/how much you "owe". It's specifically related to tax liability. If you have tax liability of at least $7500 (can be all paid via withholdings or estimated tax payments), you can qualify for the entire $7500 Federal tax credit.
As for Ioniq, I've never driven one. It wasn't even in the picture when I was considering Bolt. I wanted an EV that had enough range to be my only car. Ioniq of the time was nowhere close (https://fueleconomy.gov/feg/Find.do?act ... 0&id=42191
). I'd have been better off getting a 40 kWh Leaf at the time.
There are reports that the DC FC speed of 2020 Ioniq Electric took a big step backwards from previous gen. Its range is also too short to be my only car besides it being too late for now I have no plan to degrade from Bolt to a 170 mile EV.
Sorry, I know almost nothing about the Kia Niro. It didn't exist in the US at the time I bought my Bolt. If you look at US sales figures of HyunKia in the US (https://insideevs.com/news/343998/month ... scorecard/
), it seems they're not serious about EVs in the US.
Will write about Bolt later.
