Chevrolet is giving a $6,300 discount on the 22 and 23 model Bolts. The Maverick Hybrid is selling at MSRP, some dealers are marking that up because they are so popular. Some people have been waiting over a year to get theirs. I’m glad you’re teaching this technology because like it or not, it’s coming.
