I'm sure they are not "giving" a Volt/Bolt away. You know it's buried into the base price of the home. I wonder if they are passing on any discount the dealer gave them or charging the full MSRP and pocketing the difference. I'm guessing the builder is pre-wiring the garage for a "Lvl II" EVSE outlet. Based on what I paid after the fact for a 240V/30amp line I'm guessing a builder could do one for about $100 during construction.

I wouldn't want a vehicle purchase bundled into a house purchase. Having the garage wired and with a charger would be more reasonable and appropriate. I drive to Naples every other week, and CCS fast chargers are non-existent, which ruled out the Bolt for me. It's a bit surprising to me given this is a higher wealth demographic area.

I agree it's ridiculous to bundle in a car, especially an expensive car, with a house. Installing a Level 2 EVSE in the garage is fine, an EVSE is part of the house and more importantly it's not expensive, not only that you save a little bit on the installation because the electricians are wireing the garage anyway.

Basically lets you finance your new car over the 30 (or whatever) year term of the home loan. Better off forgoing the car and negotiating an equivalent discount on the house.
