    That's a sizeable battery! it's nearly 3x the size of a BMWi3 (which is 22KWhr), and the same size as the early Tesla Model S.

    " The Bolt will be priced around $30,000 after a $7,500 federal tax credit"

    Is it just me, or does it seem to others that this statement, repeated everywhere, is misleading? It's my understanding that only those paying $7,500 or more in federal income tax will be eligible for a tax credit of $7,500. If you pay less income tax, THAT will be the maximum amount of your tax credit. It's not a simple $7,500 rebate or discount, and it bothers me that a price of "$30k" keeps being repeated, when most buyers of modest means (i.e., not a Tesla) will be paying (much-) closer to the MSRP. Am I correct?
