General Motors and Chevrolet have not revealed official pricing for the 2017 Chevy Bolt EV for our friends to the north, but Inside EVs has pieced a few details together to grab a snapshot of what Canadian consumers could be looking at when the EV arrives.
During the Ontario Auto Show, a Chevrolet representative commented on the 2017 Bolt EV’s eligibility for $14,000 in incentive, due to its pure-electric propulsion system and its fifth seat. Combining this information with Canada’s law of incentives not exceeding 30-percent of the MSRP, pulling out the calculators reveals a ballpark number: $46,500.
To qualify for the max incentives, which GM Canada will likely pursue, the MSRP must stretch north of $46,500, making the 2017 Bolt EV a relative steal in U.S. dollars, around $34,000, but pricey for the Canadian consumer.
The report also points out Ontario’s generous incentive programs, while Quebec and British Columbia offer lesser amounts. The 2017 Bolt EV is likely poised for skewed sales, with Ontario the best province to bring home Chevrolet’s 200-mile plus EV.
