Since reports of Bolt orders seem to be all over the place on this forum I figured combining it all into one thread is the best thing to do. So, Who ordered?; Which dealer? What color/trim/packages/options/etc.? How much was your deposit? How much did you pay out the door? When are you taking delivery? As you can see the list of questions goes on and on, include as many or as few details as you wish.

Keyes Chevy in Van Nuys
$500 refundable deposit
Fully loaded Arctic Blue Premier with fast charging
It was a dealer inventory order, but matched to my specs.
They said they have TPWs of 11/28 and 12/5.
No pricing settled, but will be Costco member pricing or better (I think that's why they did inventory orders......custom orders aren't eligible for Costco supplier pricing).
If I don't like their offer, they rip up my deposit check.
Gonna have it shipped to MD.

White LT with both convenience & confidence pkgs and fast charge.

Sierra Chevrolet in Monrovia (SoCal)

The guy stated that they won't add a mark-up to the price, so I assume that means MSRP.

Deposit was $500 and is refundable.

I want to order one but GM will not make them in RHD, GM is missing out on a huge opportunity which Nissan, BMW, VW and Tesla will take advantage of as they make their EV's for both RHD and LHD markets.

RHD is not really 'a huge market' - the only '1st world' places I can think of with left-hand traffic and a population of at least 10 million are : the British isles (incl Eire), Japan, and Australia. I don't see GM selling many Bolts in India or Pakistan until they are assembled cheaply somewhere in Asia, so the rest of RHD countries can wait until then.

Fremont Chevrolet
MSRP $500 deposit
Silver metallic Premier with all options except fast charge (couldn't see spending $750 on something that won't be needed as the Bolt will not be used on road trips; have a second car that is much more suitable for that purpose).
Chevy Chat gave me a code that says car is scheduled to be produced the week of Nov. 28. Keeping my fingers crossed for a Dec. delivery.

If Tesla can make their cars both RHD and LHD why can't GM do it with the BOLT.
They CAN, but why should they? It's a very limited market. I'm sure that they will have problems meeting demand for just LHD vehicles. The largest (1st world) RHD market would be Japan, and no car without CHAdeMO would be very successful there. No problem leaving the entire RHD market (for now) to the Japanese manufacturers - they HAVE to build RHD anyways.

Let's get some more Bolt order updates! Either post here or at GM-Volt.com!
http://gm-volt.com/forum/showthread.php?262065-Bolt-order-tracking!
Great share, glad to see the other forum has something going as well and on that note about them, here's a nugget for anyone wanting real time information on the status of the Bolt they ordered:

Chevrolet Live Chat gave me a status in about a minute, using my order number.

Status is 3000. I don't know what it means, but no doubt it's better than 2000!

Is anyone trying to order or reserve a Bolt for leasing? I'm retired and can't get the full tax credit if I buy, so I'll be leasing again. With the announcement that the 2017 Leaf will be unchanged, my priority is now a Bolt Premiere, because I really need the surround vision, and they won't be offering it on the LT.

Me too

Also retired and the tax credit will do me no good. My wife and I live modestly and our combined RMD (required minimum distribution) and luckly, good health means we don't itemize our taxes.
I too will be leasing my Bolt. Luckly I'm in no hurry and want to see the real thing before I spend my money.

Ordered a fully-optioned LT last week from Courtesy Chevrolet in Escondido, CA. MSRP. Order accepted by GM but do not yet have a production week. Salesperson told me they had 23 allocations and I was number 20. He did not know when their next allocation would be but if he is to be believed, Courtesy got the largest allocation in the San Diego metro area.

Very glad I got my order in before Motortrend named the Bolt the 2017 Car of the Year. I suspect that that will generate a bit more interest. For instance a fellow I do not know and I engaged in a casual conversation today at the gym and he knew all about it.

Given all the great press I have no fears that GM won't be able to sell 30,000 of MY2017.

Ordered a Nightfall grey Premier, fast charging, both option packages. Costco program ("$600 under invoice) through the closest dealer honoring Costco pricing. Build date of 12/12. Plan on leasing so anxious to see how it plays out...should be favorable thanks to the residual and tax credit.

Dang. I should've tried Costco too. The last time I tried to buy a vehicle from them was a 2014 WRX and Costco's price was 2k over what I paid just by negotiating, so I didn't even think about going there this time with this vehicle. Well done indeed! I called around and no one in San Diego was budging from MSRP, though to be frank I was more concerned with getting in the queue now than in getting a good deal.

Ordered a fully loaded Sunburst Orange November 1st at Hedrick's Chevrolet in Clovis, CA.
No deposit made yet, to be built the week of 11-28-16. I will try to get small discount off retail, or make them throw in 240 volt charger free.

Today, November 15th, Got call that they had a Sunburst Orange Cruze came in, went and looked at it.

Loved it! It actually is more of a Gold color in sunlight than orange.

Jerry,
2011 Red Volt, keeping for long road trips.
