I've been waiting for the KBB fair purchase price to be posted and it finally has. For a Bolt with msrp of 43,510 KBB has the Fair Purchase Price at 41,512 at around the Los Angeles area for a purchase, with taxes and fees around $45,500 out the door.

Exact same fair price listed for the SF bay area. This would be about $2K below MSRP. Certainly they have not been advertised at that price. I hope dealers will do it with inventory ramping up.

I believe Supply and Demand will determine Fair Purchase Price. But am surprised I haven't heard of dealers adding the infamous Additional Dealer Mark-Up to Bolt sales.

Well, a certain dealer in the SoCal area had been trying to do that....still might be. :rolleyes:

Hard to do that when they release so many in the same area at once. A benefit of their staged release.

On the flip side, look at the debacle that is the Prius Prime "national" rollout. Ripe for price gouging by dealers.

Can't really blame dealers to want to start at MSRP (or higher)...Three under MSRP deals have been reported at CA dealerships...But also what a lot of people don't seem to understand is often two salesmen can offer vastly different prices (and experiences) at the same dealership...Yet you avoid that whole back and forth on the price BS by agreeing to pricing over email...

Also I believe once the forum sponsors start to advertise more, we'll have better pricing...

As viking79 has pointed out, the geographically limited rollout has allowed increased supply, reducing the possibility of mark ups above MSRP. Not that dealers are adverse to those mark ups!

I think we'll see the same things as the Bolt EV is released in other CARB states before a more general national release.

I think some dealerships that are true "volume" dealerships have been making a killing. $1,000 under MSRP on the LT and $2,000 under MSRP on the Premier keeps the Bolt EVs rolling out the door.

Early adopters should not expect huge discounts for at least a few months. Remember, dealers are making little or nothing on EV service.

That $38,245 MSRP is within a few dollars of the MSRP quoted on my LT, but I was able to get an additional $1,000 off. See if you can negotiate down and get a price quote.
