It was less than two months ago that General Motors delivered its first 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EVs to customers in the United States, fulfilling its promise to launch the car by the end of 2016. Now, Canada has had its first crack at the affordable EV.
Chevrolet Canada delivered its first two Bolt EVs in the provinces of Ontario and Quebec. The brand also stated additional Bolt EVs are in transit to certified dealerships across British Columbia, Ontario and Quebec.
“This is a truly satisfying moment as our customers begin to experience this ground-breaking technology and overall fun-to-drive vehicle,” said Laura Pacey, brand director for Chevrolet in Canada. “Standard features include DC fast charger capability, Regen on Demand steering wheel paddle, a 10.2-inch color touch screen and MyChevrolet smartphone mobile app, ensuring Canadian customers are more connected than ever.”
In Canada, the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV starts at $42,795 before any provincial incentives are applied. In Ontario, the price may drop to $30,406 after $12,389 worth of incentives are applied to the purchase price.
Chevrolet Canada says a nationwide rollout will occur later in 2017.
