It's not uncommon to see new General Motors' vehicles not eligible for employee discounts, so discovering that the Bolt has been left off the eligible car list isn't too surprising to us.
As GM Inside News reports:
"As of this writing, the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt is ineligible for GM Employee Discounts."
GM Inside News dug deep into GM's Family First site, which lists the various discounts available for employees, retired employees, family members and so on. The discovery included this image:
Bolt Not Eligible For Discount
Over time, we expect the Bolt to become eligible for discounts, but as GM's newest offering, discounts aren't normal right out of the gate.
GM Inside News did reach out to Bolt comminucation head Fred Ligouri for comment on the matter, but had not received a response at time of publication.
