Northeast And Mid-Atlantic Regions On Deck For 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV Launch6
General Motors is busy building about 100 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EVs per day at the Orion assembly plant, but those first vehicles will only be allocated to the West. Specifically, California and Oregon will have first dibs on the Bolt EV.
However, according to Automotive News, the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV will head to the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions of the United States next, as the GM pushes its first affordable electric vehicle to the masses.
The 2017 Bolt EV will continue to trickle into the west coast before reaching the two additional regions throughout this coming winter. The automaker is said to be planning a nationwide roll-out to EV-certified dealerships around mid-2017.
Chevrolet delivered its first Bolt EVs to three California customers last week, keeping its promise to launch the EV by the end of 2016.

GM did not keep it’s promise to Mich. customers ! I wanted one before the end of this year to get a tax credit. Thanks again GM !!!!!
When did GM ever promise the Bolt to Michigan consumers before the end of the year?
I know someone who ordered a Chevy Bolt EV at a California dealer and arranged to ship it to his local dealer next week. Some Volt owners did this, too. So can you!
Acquiring one isn’t the most significant problem (aside from potentially not qualifying for special offers because one is from out of state), it’s getting it serviced by a service dept. that’s qualified (trained) to make repairs.
We’ve been waiting here in Nevada as this state is prime for EVs—-solar panels, free recharges everywhere (even McDonald’s), state-run chargers on highways, and no snowy winters (at least in southern Nevada); yet, GM is only giving them to California and Oregon. May have to go with the Nissan Leaf, Ford Focus Electric, VW e-Golf, Kia Soul EV, or some others. Hope GM rolls these out soon.
See my post above. If you REALLY want the Bolt EV, order one in Calofirna and ship it or drive it to your home. Don’t give up to a different brand!
