Chevrolet has delivered the first three Bolt EVs to customers in the San Francisco Bay area yesterday.

“All of the hard work that the Chevrolet team have put into designing, engineering and building the Bolt EV brings us to this truly satisfying moment of making the first deliveries to customers on-time, as planned,” said Alan Batey, president of GM North America and Global Chevrolet brand chief. “Chevrolet is proud to offer a vehicle like the Bolt EV, with ground-breaking technology wrapped in a modern design that is also fun-to-drive at an affordable price.”

The Bolt EV offers an EPA-estimated 238 miles / 380 kilometres of range on a full charge, enabling owners to go beyond average daily driving needs with range to spare.

The Bolt EV begins at a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $37,495 (Rs 23.68 lakh), which includes destination and freight charges, but excludes tax, title, license and dealer fees. Depending on individual tax situations, customers in the USA may receive an available federal tax credit of up to $7,500 (Rs 4.73 lakh).

Standard features include electronic precision shift, Regen on Demand steering wheel paddle and 10.2-inch-diagonal colour touch screen. The top-trim Premier model adds leather-appointed seats, front and rear heated seats, surround camera, rear camera mirror and more.

Chevrolet says Bolt EVs are currently in transit to California and Oregon markets and are arriving this month. A national rollout in the USA begins in 2017, and a number of Northeast and Mid-Atlantic States including New York, Massachusetts and Virginia will see first deliveries this winter. Bolt EVs will arrive to more dealerships in additional major metro markets throughout the first half of 2017. The Bolt EV will be available at Bolt EV-certified dealerships across the United States in mid-2017.
