    Is it true, that when you lease a Bolt or Volt, the tax credit (which now stands at $3,750) goes to the leasing company, which in this case is a part of GM, and the customer never sees it at all? If that;s true then the Federal Law, which established that credit to encourage electric car...

    I have found 2015 Chevy Volt with leather seats for 31K. The mileage on the car is at 1,500ish miles, but has never been sold, but was used as a GM company car. The dealer says the Tax Credit should be good as it has never been titled. Is there any way to check and make sure it is still good?
