General Motors has made news in Canada with the Chevrolet Bolt EV’s claimed electric range of 383 kilometres, and now there’s a price attached it.
A base model Chevrolet Bolt EV is $42,795 in Canada, a pre-tax price that parent company General Motors calls affordable.
The MSRP doesn't include the $1,600 destination charge or take into account any eligible government incentive programs for electric vehicles that are available.
GM claims the price for a base model Bolt is as low as $31,434 in Ontario, for example, if buyers take advantage of provincial incentives totalling $11,361. Quebec and B.C. are the only other provinces to offer incentives. There are no federal incentives in Canada.
The Bolt is considered a subcompact car in Canada, where several gas-powered cars in that category can be purchased for less than $15,000, before tax and fees.
