Chevy Moves Nearly 1,000 Bolt EV's Last Month

Chevrolet announced today that they moved 952 copies of its Bolt EV electric vehicle. The plug-in electric vehicle has only been on sale since December and is currently only sold in two states in the U.S.

So far for the year Chevrolet has sold 2,114 Bolt EV’s as of February 28th. By comparison, sales of the all-electric Nissan Leaf have totaled 1,809 so far this year. While the Leaf is largely available nationwide, the Bolt EV is currently only on sale in California and Oregon. It is slated to launch in more states over the next few months, with a national rollout by later this year.

Chevrolet launched the Bolt EV as the first mass-market electric vehicle to cross the 200 mile range threshold and maintain a mainstream price point. The Bolt EV starts at $37,495 before federal and state level tax incentives.

    I would have a hard time forking over the $$$ for a Tesla product due to their build quality. Most of the ones I've seen in the wild look like they were put together by a group of HS students.


    I think the first couple of models Consumer Reports tested had to be hauled off on a flatbed. They had some of their buyers sign a non disclosure in exchange for making some repairs.

    I am fully in support of a new Domestic car company....but I would not buy or lease one of these things unless I had a "spare" car available at all times.

    And that's why you buy an EV from an automaker who has the financial strength, experience, and resources to immediately mass produce cars.

    I'm sure a Tesla fanboy's about to tell me about how the Model 3 will be so much better than the Bolt EV and Elon Musk is god, but at the end of the day, General Motors, the company that "killed the electric car," is eating Tesla's currently non-existent lunch when it comes to affordable EVs.

    Tesla is more of a status symbol. They are all over the bay area and seems to have attracted a market of either wealthy people or people who want to appear wealthy.

    The Bolt beat the Model 3 to market by over a year, and I suspect the 3 will be delayed again. Given Tesla's history of delaying their launches by over a year, it was obvious about 14 months ago that Chevrolet was going to be the first to offer an affordable long range electric vehicle. The next generation Nissan Leaf will also probably beat the Tesla model 3 to market.

    And the Chevrolet and Nissan come with a dealership network that can facilitate distribution, sales, and service all over the country.

    The Bolt out there establishing a market and a following, and no one has delivered a direct competitor yet.

    That's incredible especially consider it is only available in California and Oregon. It's building a following and creating a niche very rapidly.

    And Tesla still hasn't delivered a Model 3.
