I have been buying all my GM accessories from https://www.cultragfactoryparts.com since they became a Corvette Forum supporting vendor years ago and was out buying some accessories for our 2017 GMC Acadia when for fun I dropped in on the BoltEV tab.

https://www.cultragfactoryparts.com...e/electric-propulsion-system-cat/battery-scat

So I see there are TWO different batteries listed for the 2017 Bolt one labeled "1st design" listed for $14,832.45 and another labeled "2nd design" listed for $15,356.25

I didn't dig around and don't know if this price is with or w/o a CORE charge. And I'm guessing shipping must be a nightmare.

Does anyone know what the difference is and why GM lists TWO different batteries for a 2017 Bolt?

Would take that info with a grain of salt since the parts breakdown pics from that website are of the Volt's battery pack and not of the Bolt's pictured above although the other info may be correct...

That's pretty interesting since it suggest two slightly different battery packs. But it could also just be a type or mistake or something like that.

Chevy execs were quoted as saying it costs them $145 a KW for the bolt battery. 60 KW X $145 = $8,700.
That's for the cells not the pack, and cost usually won't be equal to the replacement price.

GM makes running changes, so the correct battery may be determined by a part number on the original battery, the production date or by VIN break.

As noted, the diagram shows a Volt battery, and we know that there are two different generations of Volt batteries.

Bolt, not so much.
