New Chevrolet Bolt EV Production Increases to Meet Demand
August 7, 2018
The new Chevrolet Bolt EV is a leader in eco-friendly family crossovers! Now it has the sales to back it up.
With global sales jumping 40 percent over the first six months of 2018, dealerships are struggling to keep up with demand. That’s prompted executives to ramp up production of the Bolt EV for the fourth quarter.
More than 7,800 Chevrolet Bolt EVs have left dealership lots between January and June! The Nissan Leaf sold just over 6,600 units during the same time period. So, the Bolt EV effectively topped the nearest competitor. Best, or worst, of all, Bolt EV production hasn’t been able to keep up with demand in North America and South Korea. As a result, General Motors is increasing production.
“The extra production coming on line should be enough to help us keep growing global Bolt EV sales…and bring us another step closer to our vision of a world with zero emissions,” said Kurt McNeil, U.S. vice president of sales operations.
The 2018 Bolt EV features a 238-mile electric-only range*. The small family crossover boasts an eight-year/100,000-mile battery and electric component warranty. Available DC Fast Charging capability enables the Bolt EV to achieve a 90-mile range in just 30 minutes on the charger.
Regen on Demand™ allows drivers to slow the Bolt EV down without using the actual brake pedal. The innovative technology converts energy into electricity. The system is just one reason that drivers love the Chevrolet Bolt EV.
