2022 Chevy Bolts drive deep ’20-’21 model discounts toward $20K

If you’ve been shopping for a 200-plus-mile EV, odds are that last week’s 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EV/EUV announcement really caught your attention. With a fresh look on the outside, majorly improved interior, included 240V 7.2KW charge cable, and perhaps most importantly, a starting price that is thousands of dollars less than the outgoing Bolt EV and its competitors, why not wait a few months for General Motors’ latest and greatest? Well, as one might expect, dealer discounts and factory rebates on 2020 and 2021 Bolt EVs have been adjusted favorably over the past few weeks, and there are some incredible deals inching the 2020-2021 Bolt starting price to near $20,000 now.

Those who religiously check our Electric Vehicle Price Guide after the first week of the month probably noticed that the factory rebate on a 2020 Bolt was bumped up to $8,500 for February, which was perhaps a preemptive move prior to the 2022 Bolt EV/EUV reveal.

January EV deals: 200+ miles of range for less than $200/month

Happy New Year! Now that 2021 has arrived, dealers are even more motivated than last month to move old inventory off their lots. Remaining stock of 2020 models is already thin in some locales, so act soon if you find any of these offers on 200-mile EVs enticing.  

As always, check our Electric Vehicle Best Price Guide and Electric Vehicle Best Lease Guide for the best deals on EVs in the US.

Huge year-end discounts and rebates drive the cost of new EVs below $20K

Nissan Leaf at night

During our monthly search for the best EV discounts, we found four models – two BEVs and two PHEVs – that can cost less than $20,000 before tax and license. Considering the average used vehicle price as reported by USA Today was trending upward at $21,558 in July, and that the average new vehicle transaction price is just shy of $40,000 ($39,259 to be exact, per Kelly Blue Book), $20K for a brand-new electric vehicle looks like a relative bargain.

Note this is the last week we’ll include PHEVs in our roundups. Our resolution for 2021 is BEVs only!
