The 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV will enter production and become available towards the end of this year, but some of the biggest news with Chevy’s affordable electric vehicle has surrounded Lyft.
There are autonomous variants planned, coordination with the ride service and more underway, but the latest news comes from Inside EVs. The report states it is possible to rent a 2017 Bolt EV for $0. Nothing. For free. However, you want to put it.
Alongside the announcement of General Motors and Lyft expanding its Express Drive program to San Fransisco, Los Angeles and Denver it was made known the 2017 Bolt EV would be included in the ride-sharing fleet. Lyft itself will reportedly offer the Bolt EV at just $99 per week in rental costs.
But, if 40 rides per week are completed, the cost drops to just 20 cents per mile. If you complete 65 rides or more per week, the cost is free. Granted, this is not for personal use, and only for Lyft drivers, but it’s a heck of a deal if it’s proper, efficient wheels you seek.
