“November was an outstanding month for sales of cars, trucks, crossovers, and electric vehicles to consumers in all regions of Canada,” said John Roth, vice president of sales, service, and marketing for GM Canada. “We want to build on this momentum as we look to launch the Chevrolet Bolt EV, Motor Trend’s Car of the Year, in early 2017.”
