I did a little research on Chevy Bolt and Lake Orion Assembly plant seems to be dedicated to producing them since the April 4 restart. If a lot of them become available and priced right. I may go that route.
Correct on the restart. Some GM dealers may have unsold '20 to '22 Bolt EV and '22 EUV that they cannot sell until their specific VIN is eligible for replacement battery and the pack's replaced. GM dealers can't sell GM cars w/open recalls. Those would've been made before Aug 2021 (https://news.gm.com/newsroom.detail.htm ... -bolt.html
The '23 Bolt MSRPs dropped: https://www.kbb.com/car-news/2023-chevy ... rice-cuts/
. Recently, it looks like there's a rebate/customer cash on '22 Bolt EV and EUV since their MSRPs didn't drop. Try https://www.chevrolet.com/electric/shop ... nfigurator
, clicking either car then the symbol next to the Net Price After Offers. You should see $5900 off for EV and $6300 off for EUV.
Besides Bolts, there aren't too many other BEVs in the same sort of price range as Leaf. You can look at https://insideevs.com/reviews/344001/compare-evs/
. I'm now leasing a '22 Niro EV after having my '19 Bolt bought back at end of Jan 2022 in exchange for a very nice check.
At the time, I was considering leasing a Leaf, taking over a Leaf lease or buying/leasing Niro EV, Kona EV and ID.4. Used Leafs were priced crazy high as the MSRPs on '22 Leafs dropped a lot vs. '18 to '21, yet the '18 to '21 Leaf had nutty high prices vs. buying a new '22 and taking the $7500 Federal tax credit.
