Chevrolet Delivers the First Bolt EVs to Customers

BAY CITY, Mich. –– To kick off the distribution of their new electric automotive marvel to dealerships all across the country, Chevrolet has delivered the first 2017 Bolt EVs to three lucky customers. The all-new Bolt offers an EPA-estimated 238 miles of range on a full charge, five times the average daily commute of 40 miles, enabling owners to go beyond their typical daily driving needs. The new owners were selected for their unique interest and history with eco-friendly vehicles.

The first three customers to receive the highly anticipated Bolt EV:
  • William “Bill” Mattos, a retired law enforcement officer from Fremont, California, whose new Bolt EV becomes his third Chevrolet electric, after previously owning a Spark EV and second-generation Volt
  • Bobby Edmonds, a software developer with a family of four from Castro Valley, California, who replaces a BMW i3 with the Bolt EV
  • Steve Henry, a commercial real estate broker with a family of five from Portola Valley, California, whose new Bolt EV replaces a Toyota Prius

“The range and technology attracted me to the Bolt EV,” said Bobby Edmonds. “It’s also a great-looking, roomy vehicle and I love the fact it’s from an American brand. I look forward to the longer drives I can make compared to the i3 that I owned.”
