The 2017 Chevrolet Volt is making life difficult for the Chevy Bolt thanks to it having a discounted price tag which takes it $8,088 below its MSRP, while the Bolt is just $2,000 below its MSRP.
With the huge price drop below the MSRP the Chevrolet Volt could take consumers away from the Bolt for the time being. 90% of dealers in California carry the Bolt, while 40% of 3,000 nationwide dealers have it.
Along with the 2017 Chevrolet Volt possibly outselling the Chevy Bolt it is also possible that it may outsell the Tesla Model S over in the US during January 2017. The Chevrolet Bolt EV offers up an electric range of 238 miles and the Volt offers a range of just 53 miles, then the electric engine is going to carry you further, giving you a total range of 420 miles. So consumers are going to take this into account when choosing between the two.
The Chevrolet Bolt offers up more space in the back and the vehicle is easier to get in and out of. Other than this and the range there really isn’t much to set them apart and this is where the price tag might come in.
You can pick up the Chevrolet Bolt for $25, 495 with tax credits and rebates, while the Chevrolet Volt comes in at $17,007.
