When it comes to the Chevy Bolt, the fact is that not everyone in the country has been able to benefit from the craziest Bolt deals. Although the best prices have often benefited those in California and places like San Francisco, the first leases on the 2022 Bolt EV and all-new Bolt EUV appear to be the same for everyone.

As we reported today, 2022 Bolt leases will start at $269/month, with a $299 lease deal on the EUV. Unlike past offers, these are national lease examples. When the first Bolt arrived back in late 2016, it took 4 months for national offers to hit the stage. Since then, the best lease prices have been limited to those in California.

With that being said, there are important differences when it comes to state plug-in rebates. For example, the California Clean Vehicle Rebate still offers an extra $2,000 off, while the Clean Fuel Reward can get you an extra $1,500. Neither of these is included in Chevy's lease prices but could lower your cost considerably.

Although a Chevy spokesperson was unable to provide details, it's becoming increasingly evident that the brand wants buyers to think differently about Bolt prices. The new version boasts a $5,500 price cut but will come with no manufacturer rebates. Unlike the Volkswagen ID.4, Chevy isn't able to offer a $7,500 tax credit.

While no one can predict what Chevy has planned for the months ahead, both versions of the Bolt have a fundamental difference compared to other vehicles. As we noted last month, the MSRP and Invoice prices will actually be identical. We think this could be a step towards thinking about the Bolt more as a "one price" vehicle.

Real-world lease prices typically vary based on local supply and demand. However, now that the typical margin between MSRP and Invoice appears to have been eliminated, dealers may need to rethink how they advertise and price their Bolts. This may also affect a consumer's ability to haggle to get the best price possible.
