According to a report from Inside EVs, one California-based dealership is attaching a $5,000 “market adjustment” to the MSRP of its new 2017 Bolt EVs. In laymen’s terms, that’s price gouging the consumer.
This particular 2017 Bolt EV stickers at $38,245, but the added cost by the dealer brings the total price up to a much less affordable $44,824. And that’s for a base, LT trim. The Bolt EV is also eligible for a $7,500 tax credit.
The original report states to shop carefully, though, as it has spotted another California dealer selling its Bolt EVs at $1,500 below MSRP.
