Chevrolet has been gradually presenting the Bolt EV to more states since the vehicle’s introduction last December. Initially, the Bolt was expected to go on sale in all 50 US states since September this year, however General Motors has gone up its strategies. GM representative Fred Ligouri validated new reports that the Chevrolet Bolt EV will be launched nationally in August. He also discussed that vehicles will be delivered to an extra 5 states at the end of this month for an overall of 21 states since the December launch.
For a vehicle, that has only been available in less than half of the country, the Bolt EV has been selling pretty well, at least compared with Chevy’s other plug-in– the Volt hybrid. From January 2017 to May 2017, the Bolt EV has sold 5,950 units. The Volt, which is readily available all over, has sold 9,187 units in the same timespan. Broadening the Bolt EV’s schedule will likely enhance the car’s sales significantly.
