In the market for a long-range EV? The Chevrolet Bolt is seeing discounts as high as $7,000.

And so it begins.

Regardless of our previous reports that high demand is pushing up the price of the Hyundai Kona Electric at some stealerships dealerships, it appears Chevrolet dealers are taking the $35,000 Tesla Model 3 seriously and adjusting prices according.

It's important to note that every dealership is free to make its own decisions on pricing, so this may or may not be the case in your area. However, this is one of the biggest complaints of the traditional dealership model.

One person may pay way under MSRP for a car, while another dealership could rob buyers of expected reductions. One dealer may roll in some of the tax rebate for lessees, while others keep it all for their own benefit. Despite obvious price discrepancies, you could definitely use this information to your advantage as you haggle on pricing.
