Canadian Back Order List For Chevy’s Bolt EV Is Now Over A Year Long

Posted by at 2:34 pm on May 18, 2018

Over a year after its launch, the Chevy Bolt EV is still alone as an all-electric vehicle with a range of over 200 miles for less than $40,000, but GM hasn’t taken the opportunity to sell more vehicles despite clear important demand.

In Canada, the significant demand and limited availability have created a backlog of up to a year. Some dealerships have been telling potential buyers that the wait time has increased for up to 12 months for people getting on the wait list right now.

A GM spokesperson confirmed in an interview that there’s a waiting list:

“There is currently a waiting list for the Bolt EV in Canada. This is not uncommon with launch products, particularly such unique game changers like the Bolt EV. We have also seen an increase in demand for the popular Volt.”

Over the last year, GM delivered 2,107 Bolt EVs, but it looks like they could deliver many more thanks to significant EV incentives, especially in Ontario in Quebec.

In the US, Chevy Bolt EV sales have been slowly getting back to normal after a slow start to the year, but we are still talking about fewer than 2,000 vehicles per month. Buyers report that it’s a lot easier to get the Bolt EV in the US, especially in CARB states, like California. Earlier this year, GM’s CEO announced that they are increasing Chevy Bolt EV production, but she didn’t elaborate on how significant an increase it will be. The Chevy Bolt EV 2019 is also coming soon, but it only features 3 new color options and a few minor updates.
