Describing it as a ‘truly satisfying moment’, General Motors Canada have revealed that first Chevrolet Bolt EVs have been delivered to Canadian customers.
Delivered to customers in British Columbia, Ontario and Quebec through Bolt EV-certified dealerships, the Chevrolet Bolt EV has taken just two years from concept stage to production and deliveries. Amongst the first Canadian customers to receive the highly anticipated Bolt EV are Samantha Mesrobian, director of corporate social responsibility at Scotiabank, and Claude Michaud, past President of Quebec-based RenoDepot.
“I chose the Bolt EV because I was impressed by the technology and innovation built into the car,” said Samantha Mesrobian, new Bolt EV owner. “It is the perfect car based on my current driving habits, and has a long range battery. There is no impact to my lifestyle other than reducing my carbon footprint. And that’s what my goal was.”
“This is a truly satisfying moment as our customers begin to experience this ground-breaking technology and overall fun-to-drive vehicle,” said Laura Pacey, brand director for Chevrolet in Canada.
Named the 2017 North American Car of the Year, the Bolt EV offers an U.S. EPA-estimated 383 kilometres of range on a full charge, enabling owners to go beyond average daily driving needs with range to spare. Some of the standard features include DC fast charger capability, Regen on Demand steering wheel paddle, a 10.2 inch colour touch screen and MyChevrolet smartphone mobile app.
The Bolt EV starts at a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $42,795 (plus $1,600 freight charge and $100 air conditioning tax), but excludes tax, title, license and dealer fees. In Ontario, pricing can be as low as $30,406 after the eligible Ontario provincial incentive of $12,389. For more information on provincial incentives click here.
