Some guy on FB that's somewhere in Canada said he expects his Bolt either late this month or next month.Ontario, Canada
But nobody know when the Bolts will be delivered. Could be around April or May.
Seems like you're just across the boarder, so just get a one way plane ticket, get a Bolt over at this Rydell place in Northridge and drive it home. Your local Chevy dealers will eventually carry them, so service work will eventually be able to be done locally. probably by the end of the year. This way you can take advantage of the tax credit for sure.I doubt I will ever see a Bolt in AZ anytime in the near future. These are the only states where you can buy a Volkswagen E-Golf - California, Connecticut, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington, DC. I am sure those are the states GM will heavily target first. My guess is any leftovers will then be allocated to other states. If the tax incentive is lost it will put a Bolt out of my price range. Which sucks because I just wired my garage with a 60 amp circuit for an electric vehicle.
Mine is on order through Criswell Chevrolet in Gaithersburg, MD. Joey Ryall is a great salesperson.Hey bro1999,
What dealership in Maryland please?
I live an hour below Atlanta and I want to go ahead and order one to be shipped to me.
Georgia will be this Fall I'm guessing. Atl dealership was BSing as I thought.
Guess that I'll go ahead and get my Maryland order in for March delivery. That's what the dealership said anyway.
I already have my 240 volt, 30 amp power supply installed from when I had my two-year almost free Leaf deal, so I'm ready to order.
You are right, as of today, no more out of state shipments. Told me that GM said lack of service center in Georgia would be a problem. Hopefully, will not need any servicing until 150k miles, and any software updates can come over the air. BUT, if I do have issues, closest dealer will be over 100 miles away in Atlanta, and that may not be until 2nd or 3rd quarter of this year. No dealers in Columbus, GA planning to sell or service the Bolt. So for now, gonna be an around the town vehicle. No road trips yet. Mine was loaded up on a truck today, is moving southward, now near Long Beach, CA. Hope to have it in a week. May be the only one in Georgia to have one for quite a while.bro1999,
So you paid Calf registration fees and then they let you purchase out of state? Then you have to register it in your state when it gets delivered and pay the taxes?
They told me to do the same thing to get mine shipped to Ga, but how much did that cost to register it there and how much trouble will it cause down the road if any?
The Rydell sales rep said that the one problem is emissions. He also said that they let some orders slide early on, but Chevy put a stop to out-of-state sales today???
What you're missing here is that you will have to pay CA sales tax which can range 7.5% to as much as 9.5% depending on county and city you are "based" in. This tax is assessed on the sale price, so before the federal tax refund. The only consolation is, you would also be eligible for the $2500 CA rebate. You would have to have a CA address to do all this. I'm not sure if a PO box would work or not.Rydell told me that I could still get one if I registered it in Calf first, but I thought that you'd still have to have a friend or relatives Calf. address to use.
Or do you have to get creative maybe?
So if ordered from Calf;
$1000 cheaper plus $500 less on doc fees = $1500 minus the $350 Calf registration fees, then $1000 to ship it to East coast.
Order from Maryland which is just 700 miles from my house; $1000 more on msrp, $500 higher doc fee, but only $600 to ship to me.
And of course Calf has the exact Bolt that I want, or will in one month.
Maryland could be 12 weeks wait time.
So approximately $770 saved going the Calf route as opposed to Maryland, but I'd probably get it faster.
