GM Korea used the first day (yesterday) of the fourth International Electric Vehicle Expo to start taking orders for the Chevrolet Bolt EV, which will arrive at Chevrolet Korea dealerships next month.
The Chevrolet Bolt EV is expected to be much more successful than its plug-in hybrid sibling, the Volt, which is already on sale in South Korea.
The increasing expansion of Bolt’s availability outside the USA, might mean that GM finally realized that this electric car is much more appropriate for the Asian and European markets that prefer hatchbacks that are small on the outside but big on the inside. Unlike the USA market that prefer bigger cars like the ones sold by Tesla.
The ultimate test of this car’s success will happen in Norway, with first deliveries of the Opel Ampera-e confirmed to start in May.
