Chevrolet has revealed their state-by-state distribution schedule for the new Chevy Bolt and it won’t be available on showrooms nationwide until September of this year.


We all know the first states to get the Bolt EV in limited quantities is California and Oregon. Forum member bilmat was one of the first three people to pick one up back in December and more deliveries followed soon after. Markets with strong demand for the Volt plug-in hybrid and electric cars in general will be prioritized, meaning those of you on the West Coast and in the Northeast should be seeing deliveries soon.

Rollouts will expand next month starting with Massachusetts, Maryland, and Virginia. By the time August rolls around, the Chevy’s new EV should arrive in Bolt EV-approved dealerships in 19 states with a full 50-state rollout by September. This is just an approximate schedule so it is subject to change.

Left Lane News reports that the slow rollout could be intentional since Chevrolet has already beaten the Tesla Model 3 to market. Or maybe it is because the company could be taking a loss on each unit sold, potentially $9,000.

If you’ve already ordered a Bolt EV and is anxiously waiting for delivery, you could give forum member V7i7c’s method a try. Just provide the operator with your Vin or order number and they should be able to tell you if your Bolt has been shipped or not.

The list only covers the mainland states. The offshore states (Alaska and Hawaii) and the six territories are not mentioned. I expect GM to post news about future Bolt EV deliveries by September, when the 2018 MY will begin its ordering.

Highly doubt any changes before '19 or '20, and ironic that it's not available in the state it is made (and GM is headquartered) where it has gotten a ton of press, until July. Hard to understand their thinking sometimes.

It might just be a logistics issue they're trying to weed out, can't imagine it being anything else given the location of those states.
And considering that maybe, just maybe those deliveries will happen right around when majority of states are also expected to take delivery.

Best thing to do is to speak with your dealers. They might have some intel that isn't published.
