Since its regional reveal at the 2017 Dubai International Motor Show, the Chevy Bolt EV has finally arrived in dealerships across the UAE. Prospective customers can now get behind the wheel for a test drive and view the electric vehicle in showrooms across the country.
Liberty Automobiles, an official UAE Chevrolet dealer, began deliveries this month and sold its first Bolt EV to Saeed Obaid Juma Al Leem Al Ali. Mr. Saeed cited sustainability as the main reason for purchasing the Bolt EV. For Chevy, the Bolt EV is the brand’s first electric vehicle in the Middle East region.
The Bolt EV continues to be the poster-child for Chevrolet’s electrification efforts and a demonstration on what’s possible for under $40,000. With an EPA-estimated 238 miles of electric range and roomy hatchback design, the Bolt EV has also been the platform for GM’s autonomous vehicle efforts, as well.
