Chevrolet’s mass-market electric car, the Chevy Bolt, was first launched in December last year. The car has gradually been made available in more markets across the country over the past few months. General Motors had previously said that the Chevy Bolt nationwide release would take place in September 2017. The company has now moved up its plans so the Chevy Bolt will actually be released in all 50 states a full month before the date previously communicated.
General Motors had previously said that the Chevy Bolt would be released in all 50 states across the United States in September 2017. Fred Ligouri, a representative for the car company, has confirmed that the Chevy Bolt nationwide release is now going to take place in August.
The company’s representative also confirmed that the Chevy Bolt is going to be available in five additional states by the end of this month. That’s going to take the total number of states where the Bolt has been available in since December last year to 21.
General Motors has seen a respectable demand for the Chevy Bolt. It sold almost 6,000 units of the car from January 2017 to May 2017 in just a few markets. It goes without saying that General Motors will see an uptick in sales once the mass-market all-electric car is released nationwide.
It’s primary competitor, the Tesla Model 3, is not that far off either now.
