I am looking to lease a ‘kinetic blue’ Chevy Bolt LT with the ‘Comfort and Convenience Package’. I am writing to see if you can give me a better deal than John Elway Chevrolet in Englewood, Colo. recently offered me.
This is what they offered me –>
— $2,300 down
— $428 month
— 12k miles
The Colorado EV credit was not factored into the above offer, meaning, presumably, that I could claim it at the end of the tax year.
I also believe that John Elway said that they had not factored in the Federal Tax Credit, meaning they, or GM/Leasing company would not take the Federal Tax Credit, and that I would be eligible to receive the federal tax credit. However, this was not 100 percent clear.
I am hoping that you can be clearer about who, in your Chevy Bolt leases, gets the Federal Tax Credit: GM/Leasing Company/Your Dealership OR the lessor/consumer.
I was disappointed with the offer John Elway gave me. I expected a better deal than $400+ per month. Currently, I am paying $289 per month for a 2014 Nissan LEAF that I have leased for 3 1/2 years.
Given that many people in California are getting much better Bolt lease deals than what John Elway quoted me — I’ve seen multiple people get Bolts for $2,500 down, 15k miles per year and $309 per month in Calif., I am expecting to pay less. Bolt buyers/lessors have written about these lease deals on a Chevy Bolt Owner’s Group on Facebook which has nearly 4,000 members.I am definitely hoping, really, expecting a better deal than $428 per month with $2,300 down + 12k miles per year.
Can you give me a better deal?
I will definitely be leasing a Chevy Bolt thanks to the fact that it offers 238 miles of range, which is plenty for my single-car household, and three times as much range as my 2014 Nissan LEAF.
Like 70 percent of Bolt buyers, I will be brand new to Chevy and GM.
Does GM want to get a brand new customer? Do you want to be the Chevy dealership to get my business?
Thank you very much.
