I've tried to contact dealer's in NJ NYC, and Washington DC. but havent heard anything definite yet from them.
I figure if I get my name in with enough dealer's one of them should come through, but its a outdated system. I'd rather just submit my name once and buy direct from the manufacturer online.
My dealer is in Sterling Heights, MI. They will be sending an order sometime in September. Their allocation is 6 Volts. I am number 2 in their list and they expect that mine will arrive in March of 2011.
The claim is that the first 500 cars go to the government. The next batch goes to the LA area, then after that the other "early" areas.
Only one of the places I contacted is taking reservations already, and they dont have good reviews on the web, so I'm hesitant to use them.
I'd really like to get one before the end of the year to get the Government tax credit money back in the spring, rather then waiting a year.
John L Sullivan Chevrolet in the Roseville/Sacramento area of California (largest Chevy dealer in the Sacramento area) is taking reservations, but they are keeping their allocation confidential, and not advising people who sign up what their number is. They also have not disclosed whether they are selling above MSRP or not.
He said there was no point in a waiting list if his CY 2011 allocation is ONE. This did not include the required demo but the demo can't be sold. He believes the allocation will be revised after the initial production and distribution.
