My EV Concierge told me that once she had an order number for a new Bolt from a dealership, my swap would be locked in and GM couldn't cancel it. She said if my Bolt's recall status changes from "remedy not yet available" to "remedy available" the repurchase approval (whether trade or straight repurchase) would need to be resubmitted to for approval.Hasn't Chevy said new Bolt production will not resume in 2021, and again they said they will fix recalls first. For those waiting for a new Bolt swap, is the contract signed? Saying the swap will go through even if your Bolt is eligible for battery replacement before the new one is ready? Or will your car become eligible and your new order cancelled?
My MSRP credit is 11k over my repurchase offer, so it makes sense, order an ICE, and you could always sell to caravana for a slight loss and still come out 8-10k above.
She said that I should order one from a dealer to lock in my repurchase and expected that it would take 3-6 months. I also don't get how they could build new Bolts with new batteries before replacing all the batteries in the field. I'd questioned her about that in the past and she didn't have a good answer.
@2020 Bolter, how did you get solid numbers for both a trade credit and a straight repurchase? I'm having trouble getting any solid numbers out of GM. I went over it with my concierge, but that's still a guess, not an exact offer. I was told several times that the straight repurchase and trade credit were the same except that GM pays the sales tax and DMV fees if you do a trade.
