Just a few short weeks after the first American customers received their Bolt EVs, Chevy Canada is proud to announce the first two Bolt buyers in Canada!

Currently cars are in transit to Ontario, Quebec, and British Columbia before the rest of the country receives theirs later this year.

"This is a truly satisfying moment as our customers begin to experience this ground-breaking technology and overall fun-to-drive vehicle," said Laura Pacey, brand director for Chevrolet in Canada. "Standard features include DC fast charger capability, Regen on Demand steering wheel paddle, a 10.2 inch colour touch screen and MyChevrolet smartphone mobile app, ensuring Canadian customers are more connected than ever."

Among the first buyers of Bolt EVs in Canada are two high-profile individuals.

Samantha Mesrobian, director of corporate social responsibility at Scotiabank will be replacing her Land Rover, while Claude Michaud, former President of Quebec-based RenoDepot, will replace his first-generation Volt.

"I chose the Bolt EV because I was impressed by the technology and innovation built into the car," said Mesrobian. "It is the perfect car based on my current driving habits, and has a long range battery. There is no impact to my lifestyle other than reducing my carbon footprint. And that's what my goal was."

In Canada the Bolt EV starts at $42,795 before provincial incentives, in Ontario for example, prices can go as low as $30,406 after a $12,389 provincial incentive.
