Car buyers purchasing a Chevy Bolt EV/EVU in 2022 will receive a $6,000 rebate from GM/Chevrolet.
The rebate is only available to buyers of a new 2020-2022 Bolt EV/EUV, purchased new from a Chevrolet Dealer. Chevy Bolt EV/EVU buyers accepting the rebate will be required to sign an agreement waiving their rights to sue Chevrolet for any reason.* Since the vehicles are now more affordable, GM/Chevrolet is hopeful this move will bolster the sales of the Bolt EV which has been plagued with issues previously.
Recalled twice for battery fires, Chevy Bolt EV’s have historically been considered unsafe to drive.
In November of 2020, GM first issued a recall for the the earlier models of the Bolt after a few reports of fires. However it took until July of 2021 to announce what was actually causing the problem. Some cells that LG made were diagnosed with two different defects — a torn anode and a folded separator — that, when combined, and allegedly in rare cases, made it possible for a Bolt’s battery pack to catch fire while charging. Some Bolt owners received battery swaps after the recalls, along with diagnostic software to ensure safety. In spite of the replacement, a few battery fires still started in parked vehicles.
If you own a 2017-2021 Chevy Bolt you are still protected under the state and Federal lemon laws. Call Georgia Lemon Law Attorneys now at 404-737-3451 for a free case review.
