Could this really be true? This was posted on Twitter so there really isn't any proof backing it up. But it could be true since we already know the Bolt is supposed to go into production around this time.

Even if that information is false, it can't be that far off given what we already know about the current timeline of things. All we have to wait on now is for more solid confirmation on plant information. When the dots connect like that, there's a good chance.

30 Bolts an hour is 240 per day, assuming it's a standard 8-hour shift. That's 5280 a month, or over 60,000 Bolts a year... Even at only 9 Bolts an hour, that's 72 per day, or ~1600 per month, which is 19K a year...

At the "GM-Volt.com" forum, some members have Bolt EV orders with production dates for November, so the Tweet can be true because GM must supply dealers with the first lots, then take in specific orders.

What should be on everyones watch list is what Lyft is up to since apparently they will be the first to get these. Once they start getting them it will be a good indication to us.

Just checked Lyft's instagram and there's not a single word about getting Bolts.

...Lyft .... will be the first to get these.
The misquote that continues to live on. GM has repeatedly corrected this inaccuracy, but if it's repeated often enough, it must be true......

At this point, I'm not really worried about Lyft at all. They'll get their Bolt but they're not first in line. We as the average buyer are. And if they're really making 30 Bolts per hour, then there will be plenty to go around as that exceeds Chevy's estimated 30,000 units sale in the first year.
