Last year, GM brought just 600 Bolt EVs to the market and they sold out at a rapid pace. In a matter of hours, actually.
This year’s allocation may still be short to satisfy the market’s demand, but it’s reportedly more than was expected. The Bolt EV will sell for around $25,000 USD in South Korea, thanks to government subsidies for electric cars.
This past Monday, GM opened pre-orders for the Bolt EV in South Korea and deliveries are expected to commence in April.
The same day, domestic automaker Hyundai also opened pre-orders for its electric car, the Kona and Ioniq EV.
