2017 Chevrolet Bolt EVHave you been looking to go green in a vehicle with lots of room for your family, friends, and cargo? The 2017 Chevrolet Bolt is an all-new wagon from General Motors that is set to run on an all-electric powertrain that has a total driver range of 238 miles, according to the EPA. That’s more than enough for a long day trip and enough for most Bolts to run solidly without a charge through several days of commuting. In addition to all of that, this EV is set to save you money in the long run thanks to a wide range of tax rebates and incentives on the 2017 Chevy Bolt.

Federal Tax Credit

Pricing on the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt has recently been released, and its comes in at an MSRP from $37,495. Fortunately for shoppers interested in purchasing this wagon EV, there’s also a federal tax credit to incentivize people to buy all-electric vehicles. When you add in the available $7,500 federal tax credit, it brings the starting price for the Bolt down to $29,995.

Emissions Test Exemption

You will continue to find savings throughout the time you own this vehicle that come on top of all the fuel savings. In Illinois, for example, drivers of most cars in Cook, DuPage, and Lake counties are required to bring in their vehicles for emissions. Because the Chevy Bolt is an all-electric car, however, you will be able to forego the state emissions test, saving you money and time.

Reduced Registration Fees and Insurance Discounts

For Illinois vehicles, you’ll also be able to save money right off the bat with reduced registration fees. Electric car registrations cannot exceed $35 for two years or $18 for one year. A number of different auto insurance providers in Illinois also offer insurance discounts for electric vehicles, potentially saving you lots of money in the long run.

Charging Station Rebate Program

EVs run on electric power and must be charged at a charging station. You can save money on your at-home charging station thanks to the Illinois Department of Commerce & Economic Opportunity’s Charging Station Rebate Program.
