My point was not to get you to look at buying a Volt - That was just an example of what sort of deal you might get on a Bolt if you waited a couple years when the leases start coming to an endrkarl89203 wrote:I would rather not EVER buy a gas car again...so no Volt for me whatever the price.
I however was extremely impressed with the Bolt EV....just a really nice car.
Leased cars all get the $7500 tax credit (something I'll never understand) but buyers who do not have $7500 worth of tax liability don't get that break, or at least not all of it. Buying a low mileage 2 to 3 year old EV coming off a lease can save you a bundle, starting with the $7500 that the government awarded to the leasing company
I'd like to think I'll never buy another ICE too (but I certainly wouldn't rule out a Volt which can be driven as a pure EV 90% of the time) but after paying nearly $30K as an early adopter for our first iMiEV and then a couple years later getting a much better equipped nearly brand new model for less than half what we paid, buying a new one is something we'll probably never do again either
Whatever we eventually buy to replace one or both of out iMiEV's (Tesla, Bolt or Volt are likely choices) it won't be a new one, that's pretty much for certain
