It’s the vehicle that could finally make electric cars mainstream: the Chevrolet Bolt EV, with its ability to go upwards of 230 miles without having to be recharged. But unless you live in one of just two states, you can’t march down to your local Chevrolet dealer this week to buy one.
As Green Car Reports uncovered, the Bolt EV is just beginning a very slow roll-out that will eventually see it arriving in all 50 states by the end of September. Initially, the Bolt EV arrived in California and Oregon late last month. By the end of February, buyers in Massachusetts, Maryland, and Virginia will also be able to get in on the game.

She and her husband, Jim, bought the luxury sport-utility vehicle used from Jones 5 Auto Sales in November 2015, but within a week of bringing it home they realized they had a big problem: The Corvallis car dealership had shut down amid a criminal investigation, owner Shannon Jones had dropped out of sight, and dozens of people were coming forward claiming they had been ripped off.
The couple soon learned that the victims included two men who claimed to be the rightful owners of their Cadillac SRX – and that’s when they really started to worry.

The iconic DeLorean DMC-12 featuring its unmistakable gull-wing doors and stainless steel body will be introduced with a variety of upgrades, according to MLive.
