Oshawa, Ontario – The Chevrolet Volt has begun shipping to Canadian dealerships. It will be initially sold in Vancouver, Victoria, Toronto, Oshawa (Ontario), Ottawa-Gatineau, Montreal and Quebec City.

Kevin Williams, president and managing director of General Motors of Canada, released the first customer shipments at an event in Oshawa yesterday.

“Today is an historic milestone for Chevrolet in Canada,” Williams said. “The Chevrolet Volt deploys transformative vehicle technologies that are redefining automotive transportation. Very soon, enthusiastic Volt customers will be able to eliminate gasoline from their daily commutes while having the flexibility to go further, something no other electrified vehicle can provide.”

Customers in select Canadian markets have been able to place orders since May. Within twelve months, the Volt will be available nationwide.
