“We were waiting for the training to be done, we were waiting for the right tools to be in place,” Majoros said at a Chevrolet media event in Nashville, Tenn., adding all dealers wanting to sell the vehicle had to install DC fast-charging stations. “We are kind of ahead of schedule on implementing all of those things as well as making sure we have enough sufficient inventory.”

California and Oregon were the country’s first states to sell the EV-friendly vehicle. Through May, the states’ combined sales were 6,529 units

A “highly targeted” national advertising campaign for the Bolt will begin in the coming weeks, Majors said.

The Bolt likely has the best chance of any EV to change the lackluster alternative vehicle industry. It has a starting price of $37,495 including shipping, before a $7,500 federal tax credit. It’s the industry’s most affordable long-range electric vehicle.
