looking at the chevy bolt

Recommended Posts

I'm retired and can get the a plan on any ford.

but ford doesn't make anything like the chevy bolt.

And there's $8,500 off on the chevy right now.

Should I pull the trigger on this chevy?

Pardon the non employee interjection but have you not heard about the Mustang Mach-E?  It’s not as cheap as a Bolt but it’s a Ford and its way better.

Have you considered a plug in hybrid? Or just a hybrid? Then of course you have to realize the manufacturers put rebate on units that... aren`t selling because of all types of different issues. The Chevy hasn`t turn in sales numbers on their volts from day one as Chevy had projected. To save in fuel costs by buying a volt you`d have to drive 40K miles a year for a very long time. Then there`s the cost of fuel when the idea of the electric vehicles (volt) was marketed to the customers, was creeping up on 4 bucks a gallon. that is half or less, now. That along is the push away by a lot of customers from full electric vehicles, currently. I know Tesla Tesla Tesla but way more cost to off set in fuel savings. 

 

Ford is still trying to push the full electric units but Ford puts a package together that costs way more than the volt. My opinion a hybrid Fusion is the way to go. 

 

Good luck with your decision and the volt is a good little unit. Just remember what it is and if that is what fits then you`ve made a good choice. Good Luck

The chevy volt is a discontinued product.  BTW I was taught from a very young age "real cars, trucks don't wear bow ties".

You'll have to excuse Decker. He's an old long hair and sometimes gets confused.
