General Motors and Chevrolet originally revealed the Bolt EV would arrive at dealerships nationwide this coming September. However, things are moving ahead of schedule.
Following a report from Automotive News, Chevrolet confirmed the Bolt EV will arrive one month earlier in August. Additionally, order books are now open nationwide at any and all Chevrolet dealerships certified to sell the Bolt EV.
Chevrolet spokesperson, Fred Ligouri, said about 40 percent of the brand’s dealership body is qualified to sell the Bolt EV, meaning consumers won’t have to drive very far to find a certified dealer.
The Bolt EV is currently on sale in 16 states: California, Oregon, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia and Washington. Arizona, Florida, Illinois, Pennsylvania and Texas are on deck next. If you don’t see your state listed, it will be one of the 29 states receiving the car in August.
The Bolt EV’s main rival, the Tesla Model 3, is also expected to roll out nationwide this summer.
