On Thursday, shipments of new Chevrolet Volts began rolling out to Canadian dealers, who were set to deliver these extended-range electric vehicles to customers.
The Volt is currently available in Vancouver, Victoria, Toronto, Oshawa, Ottawa-Gatineau, Montreal and Quebec City. Customers in the select markets could begin ordering Volts on May 2.
General Motors of Canada anticipates a nationwide rollout within 12 months.
“Today is an historic milestone for Chevrolet in Canada,” stated GM of Canada president and marketing director Kevin Williams.
“The Chevrolet Volt deploys transformative vehicle technologies that are redefining automotive transportation. Very soon, enthusiastic Volt customers will be able to eliminate gasoline from their daily commutes while having the flexibility to go further, something no other electrified vehicle can provide,” he added.
