I agree that we don't have all of the facts so we should not assume that the county did not negotiate the price when purchasing the fleet of Bolt vehicles. If they paid $37,500 per vehicle and that price included the DC Fast Charging option that normally costs $750 then at least the county got almost a 2% discount.

The county recognized there is significant cost savings, X thousand dollars per year per vehicle, for refueling and scheduled maintenance with the Bolt versus a conventional vehicle or hybrid vehicle. The article did not state whether the county would be building a charging infrastructure that includes CCS or only Level II charging.

Montgomery county currently operates an alternative fuel refueling station where county residents can purchase CNG and E-85 for their alternative fuel vehicles. The article did not state whether county residents will be able to pay to use the new EV charging infrastructure.

Fleet sales of the Bolt to cities and counties reaffirms that Chevrolet's strategy for the Bolt is not to compete with Tesla for the luxury/near luxury EV sedan and crossover market. This also helps explain why Chevrolet chose not to include ACC on the 2017 Bolt.
