Lease deal... $8500 credit will be applied to the lease. Possibly another $1500 for people current in a lease.

Not sure it’s nationwide but mine had $8500 plus Volt lease loyalty $1500 and Dealer Cash Bonus $2500 off the selling price. Purchase not lease

Dumb question, but I'm leasing a 2017 Bolt with about a year left on it. This makes me eligible for the $1500 loyalty offer, but I still have to then figure our what to do with my 2017, right? I'd still have to pay the GM Financial penalty for turning it in early, I'd think. Also these lease deals are only for 10K miles a year which is pretty low.

You can try to offer the lease for someone else to take over. For someone not sure about EVs, a no money down 1 year lease might be very tempting.

CertPharm: I'm not sure that's a good idea to put that much down..

In most (almost every? all?) leases I've heard of with other automakers, if you total the car, you forfeit any payments you've made. Best to put down $0 to have less money at risk. Sure you'll pay a bit more over the life of the lease in terms of interest, but to me that's worth it for putting less money at risk.

"With GM employee discount, lease loyalty, and GM Card Bonus money you can lease a Bolt this January for just $196/month! This is a $0 down, sign and drive lease and includes all taxes and fees. It includes 10,000 miles per year for the lease, an LT trim level with a sticker price of around $40,000."
I'd have to banter a bit to get the employee discount (repeat customer) and GM stashed money in the Extended Family card so I'm good to go there.
But I already have a Bolt.

I bought my 2020 last week locally in Greenville, SC. LT, Blue, DC fast charge, Driver confidence I & II, Comfort package. MSRP $40,185. I got them down to $27,000 ($27800 OTD). Plus I'll get the $1875 on my 2020 taxes. Plus they let me finance with my credit union which was way lower APR than the dealer could offer.

The salesman knew nothing about the Bolt. They just want them off they lot ASAP. It's a pretty sporty little thing so far.

Just purchased a fully loaded Premier in the color I wanted (slate gray) for $31,120. Couldn't get the price lower but was able to negotiate a better than original offer for my trade-in (2014 Volt).
Been wanting this car for years so I'm pretty happy.

I decided I will turn in my 2017 bolt lease early . Lease was not up till sept and i know its dumb cause i turned in a nissan leaf when i started this lease, got only $9500 for a 3 yr leaf and my 3 yr lease totalled $20,000 . This new lease on a 2020 Bolt will be $393/month or $14,150 for 3 yr lease which always comes out to 1/2 the cost of the car / and no money down on this new lease

My local dealers have this:

2020 Bolt Premier for $29,800
or
2020 Bolt LT for $26,100, DCFC and Convenience and Confidence 1 Package

Which is the better deal or are they both not great deals?
Just got the Premier on a lease, my second Bolt - love this car! $29,800 sounds good. I wanted the confidence II package and heated seats and wheel along with the safety stuff.

I leased for 10k miles, I could have leased for 12 but I did the math and decided not to.
Here's why:

GM gets 10 cents a mile if you bump to a 12k lease and the penalty for going over a lease distance is 25 cents a mile. That means if I go under 32,400 miles I was better off getting the 10k lease. My last Bolt lease was below 30k miles.
.25 cents x $600 = 2,400 miles.
Figure your advantage the same way. We're retired the 10k lease is better for us but we like the 2020 Bolt so much we may buy at the end of the lease.

just picked up my 2020 bolt premier today / $393 a month NO MONEY DOWN and the dealer took over my 2017 lease which was good till mid sept / I was paying $279 month on the 2017 but that lease I turned in a car $9500 down payment. I figure these 36 month leases total 1/2 the price of the car . The reduced price on the 2020 was 31,404 down from 44.654.
I wanted to upgrade to the 2020 so turned in my 2017 LEASE early and probably saved $5000 with the rebates

I talked to my salesperson. Another leaser did the same thing as you and I did. He turned in his lease early and saved too. Jan is a tough month for dealers so it's a good time to buy or lease. I may buy This one at the end of the lease, the 259 mile range adds a lot more to my range than I expected it too. My winter miles at 80% charge was around 165, now it's around 200.

I just noticed today my range is up to 261 this am and i'm in GA temp is 40deg so I was very surprised. Thats with the heat off.
The other thing i noticed is there are no unlock buttons on the 2020 rear doors outside , another cost cutting i see . Also onstar is only trial for 1 month not 3
and there is no complimentary 2 tire rotations for 2 yrs
