While 39 states just learned that the 2nd generation, 2016 Chevrolet Volt will not be arriving in the US this Fall - or ever (instead a 2017 model with some "additional content" will bow in the Spring of 2017), Canadians are still in line to receive the first iteration of the 53 mile (85 km) car.
As to why Canada was not pushed back until 2017, we have a couple theories.
* - there seems to already be a lot of 2016 Chevrolet Volts already wandering around Ontario, Canada streets
* - Chevrolet Canada already announced, priced (from $39,990) and took orders for the 2016 Volt
Now, thanks to InsideEVs reader Chris Rowe, who also peppered Chevy Canada with our original report foreshadowing the recently confirmed 2016 model year change of plans, we can also pass along the news that the 2016 Volt will be arriving in showrooms by November/December!
Canadian 2016 Model Year Chevrolet Volts Arrive In November/December
In the US, the 2016 Volt arrives in California this month, followed by CARB states - OR, CT,MA, MD, ME, NH, NJ, NY, OR RI, and VT shortly thereafter. 2017 model year Volt production for all of North America begins in February/March 2016.
