Chevrolet delivered the first three 2017 Bolt EVs to retail customers in the San Francisco Bay area today, the automaker announced.

The cars were delivered to William "Bill" Mattos, a retired law enforcement officer from Fremont, whose new Bolt EV becomes his third Chevrolet electric, after previously owning a Spark EV and second-generation Volt; Bobby Edmonds, a software developer with a family of four from Castro Valley, who replaces a BMW i3 with the Bolt EV; and Steve Henry, a commercial real estate broker with a family of five from Portola Valley, whose new Bolt EV replaces a Toyota Prius.

The Bolt EV has been named Motor Trend Car of the Year and finalist for North America Car of the Year. It delivers an EPA-rated 238 miles of driving range and retails for $37,495 before federal and state tax credits.

Other Bolt EVs are now in transit to California and Oregon and will arrive this month. A national rollout begins in 2017, when it will begin arriving in New York, Massachusetts, and Virginia.
