They can keep it for themselves. There's nothing requiring them to pass the incentive through to consumers.
Yup. Eventually, we'll probably see it included. I say wait if you can the deals will be coming.
Two week update with the Bolt: So far so good. Some little things are annoying: the sunshade visors don't slide out, no sunglass holder, no homelink, no little tray left of the steering wheel, shifter operation to go to R is odd, shifter and cup holder need to be swapped, tires are a little squeally, phone app is just passable, some fit and finish is just ehh. Relatively minor things.
On the plus side: range is great! Doing OC to LA trips without worry and over 150 miles to spare. Can be fast, easy to maneuver through traffic, big infotainment screen with ApplePlay is pretty good. Charging time (TOU) setups are a breeze and work without a hitch.
Some people may be turned off by the Chevy name but I think this car is a game changer (i know, overused word). Breaking the 100-120 mile barrier with all electric is huge. Hopefully, the car (and batteries) stay reliable through the next 3 years.
