Chevy Bolts Are On Their Way To Dealers

Indicators are good the first Chevy Bolts will be delivered by month’s end, and a watchful fan snapped a great shot of photographic evidence that this is so.

Posted to the GM-Volt.com enthusiasts forum a few minutes ago, the image said to be taken today on I-75 as they leave Lake Orion, Mich,. by reader Joe Lopez shows one way Chevrolet is moving cars.

Reports are otherwise Bolts are being transported by rail to the first two states to get them – California and Oregon. Unknown if these are being sent to catch a train west, but that is entirely possible.

Chevrolet has been a bit lax in nailing down the granular details of the launch of its sub-$30,000 (after $7,500 federal credit) EV with 238 miles, but buyers playing Sherlock Holmes have been announcing what they learn as able.

A number of Bolt buyers awaiting delivery have received notice of their cars’ being produced, assignment of a VIN, and that their cars are up to status 4000 – vehicle available to ship – according to GM’s ordering system.

Others have indicated their cars are now status code 4B00 or Bayed. This means that their car is in the process of being loaded onto a carrier (truck or train).

Technically, the 4B00 code can also mean cars being pulled for quality control reasons, and it’s thus possible for them to go from 4000 to 4B00 and then back to 4000.

Given GM wants to get first cars in their new owners’ hands this month, it’s very likely transit is in process and otherwise it is just short matter of time.
