Californians, Lease A Bolt EV For $138/Month, $0 Down! (After Rebates)

Californians, Lease A Bolt EV For $138/Month, $0 Down! (After Rebates)

We've been tracking deals on Bolt EV, the world's first affordable electric vehicle with over 200 miles of range, since deliveries began nearly a year ago. This month, a number of factors (a strong residual, low money factor, and the availability of incentives) has conspired to make Bolt EV an especially great lease — more so than ever before.

We reached out to two highly-regarded Chevy sales associates to ask for their very best deal. Tricia and Phil, both of whom frequent Leasehackr Forum, serve Southern California and Northern California respectively. Our forum members love their transparency and knowledge. Leasing a car through them is a simple, painless affair with no surprises. Schedule an appointment and you'll be out driving in no time.

Here's how much it costs to lease a Bolt EV in California.
