My 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV has a Targeted Production Week
GM unveiled the 2017 Bolt EV at the International Consumers Electronic Show in Las Vegas on January 6 2016. Since that moment, I have been in touch with Myers Orleans Chevrolet Buick GMC, my local dealership.
Andrew McAlear, General Sales Manager at Myers Orleans in Ottawa, was excited to inform me last week that GM Canada has given them a thumbs up to place an order for the first Bolt within their district. Andrew told me to get in touch ASAP with Stéphane Paquet, Sales and Leasing Consultant in order to select the options I want because this first 2017 Chevrolet Bolt will be mine. Yes !
From my experience when I ordered my Volt back in 2011, I know I have to be patient. It took many months before I finally got my 2012 red Volt. I am ready to be patient. This time, it seems it will be faster than I have anticipated.
GM has production codes for each and every event for an order. My Order Workbench mentions :
- Event Code 1100 – Order Placed at Dealership – November 9 2016
- Event Code 1102 – Order Entered via Web – November 9 2016
- Event code 2000 – Order Accepted by GM – November 14 2016
- Event code 2500 – Order Preferenced, Sent to Production – November 15 2016
- Event code 3000 – Order Accepted by Production Control – November 16 2016
The most interesting information I received today is the Targeted Production Week. My 2017 Bolt EV should be in production on January 2nd 2017.
