General Motors delivered the first of its Chevrolet Bolt electric vehicles (EVs) to customers in Toronto, Ontario and Montreal, Quebec.

Samantha Mesrobian, Director of Corporate Social Responsibility at Scotiabank, took delivery of a white Bolt EV at City Chevrolet in Toronto.

“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.”


While at Bourgeois Chevrolet in Rawdon, Quebec, Claude Michaud, the Past President of Quebec-based RenoDepot took delivery of a silver Bolt EV.

“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.”

Bolt vehicles will be arriving at certified dealerships in British Columbia, Ontario and Quebec, and will be available nationally later in 2017. Bolt has an estimated range of 383 kilometres on a full charge. Those in Ontario are eligible for provincial incentive of $12,389.
