ATLANTA, GA – 22 Mar, 2017 – Jim Ellis Chevrolet announced today that the dealership has acquired a 2017 Chevrolet Bolt, named the “North American Car of the Year” at the North American International Auto Show earlier this year Detroit.  This highly anticipated all-electric vehicle is widely available in California but not in Georgia until September.

“The Bolt is not available in Georgia so we went to California and bought one,” said Mark Frost, VP of Operations for Jim Ellis.  “We wanted our customers to be able to test-drive the vehicle in advance of them being available for purchase.”  Frost also indicated that they have had great success with the Chevrolet Volt, the EV plug-in with a range extender, and Jim Ellis Chevrolet is one of the few dealers in Georgia with a solar EV charging station.  

The Bolt boast and EPA-certified range of 238 miles on a charge and is expected to compete directly with Tesla’s upcoming entry in this category.  The vehicle is eligible for a $7,500 Federal Tax credit.  Georgia, at this time, does not offer a tax credit.  Prices start under $30,000 after applying the Federal Tax credit.
