UAE Chevrolet dealer sells its first Bolt EV

DUBAI, August 15, 2018

Al Ghandi Auto, one of the official Chevrolet dealers in the UAE, has sold its first Bolt EV, Chevrolet’s first electric vehicle in the region and the first EV to combine clean technology with a range of over 500km on a single charge.

The company handed over the keys to its Bolt EV customer, Janice Albrando from the Philippines.

“When I first heard about the Chevrolet Bolt EV I was excited to learn more as it meets all my requirements on green credentials without compromising on performance or range, making it ideal as my main car. Doing my part to protect the environment is important to me, especially in the small lifestyle adjustments everyone can make, and committing to an electric vehicle is the next step for me and my family,” said Albrando.

Molly Peck, chief marketing officer at General Motors – Middle East said: “Since its debut at the Dubai International Motor Show and its participation in the Global Electric Vehicle Road Trip, we have seen an unprecedented appetite for the Chevrolet Bolt EV in the region and we’re delighted to finally start putting keys in hands. Coupling up the Chevrolet Bolt EV with customers dedicated to driving change is a reward in itself for our team. We would encourage anyone who has any questions about electric vehicles to visit one of our showrooms to experience the future of mobility for themselves.”

"We are delighted to sell the first Chevrolet Bolt EV in Dubai to Janice Albrando, it was a pleasure that I hope I have time and time again with other customers looking to go green. We remain firmly committed to creating a sustainable landscape in future mobility, and the launch of the Chevrolet Bolt EV in Dubai signifies our relentless efforts to bringing innovation that complements the direction of the Dubai government in building a Smart City and in increasing the availability of zero emission vehicles in the UAE," commented Mark Jenkins, CEO, Al Ghandi Auto Group.

To mark the milestone of the first Bolt EV sale in Dubai, Chevrolet’s strategic partner, GreenParking, provided Albrando with a level 1 charger to offer easy charging in her apartment block parking.

Sam Alawiye, CEO at GreenParking said: “Driving the future of mobility forward is our goal and we are excited to see more electric vehicles on the road. Partnering with General Motors to provide their Bolt EV customers with convenient home charging solutions demonstrates our commitment to the Middle East’s transport revolution.” – TradeArabia News Service
