Chevrolet Bolt To Go On Sale Throughout The U.S. In August

The Chevrolet Bolt is one of the first affordable electric vehicles to offer a decent range, and now the company has confirmed the model will go on sale nationwide in August.

While the Bolt has been available in select markets, Chevrolet’s marketing director for cars and crossovers told Automotive News the company has begun accepting orders from all U.S. dealers who are certified to sell electric vehicles. Customers who place their orders now can expect to receive their car by August.

The slow roll out has probably disappointed a few customers, but the move was done cautiously so there wouldn’t be product shortages in key markets. As Steve Majoros explained, “It’s this delicate balancing act but we think we’re at the right level of sufficient inventory. We can keep feeding where there’s a stronghold of sales.”

The Bolt has a 60 kWh lithium-ion battery which powers an electric motor that develops 200 hp (150 kW) and 266 lb-ft (360 Nm) of torque. This setup enables the car to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 6.5 seconds and travel up to 238 miles (383 km) on a single charge.

Pricing starts at $37,495 but a $7,500 federal tax credit effectively lowers the base price to $29,995.
