Chevy Volt: Still Not Selling

Aug 3, 2011 • By JONATHAN V. LAST

The July sales numbers are out and the Chevy Volt continues to electrify (get it?) the country. GM sold … 125 Volts last month!
Obama Volt

Way back in March I made fun of the Volt for selling 281 units in February. Turns out, February was a good month. But wait, there’s more! GM says they’re going to increase production to 5,000 Volts per month in order to keep up with demand. You see, they claim that the reason the Volt isn’t selling is that they can’t keep enough cars on the lot. A GM spokeswoman recently claimed that they are “virtually sold out.” Which is virtually true. Mark Modica called around his local Chevy dealers and found plenty of Volts waiting for an environmentally conscious driver to bring them home.

All told, GM has sold close to 2,700 Volts. (Funny aside: There’s a Volt in my neighborhood and a Volt that parks in my garage at work. So I see almost 0.1 percent of all the Volts in America on a daily basis.) But hey, the EV future is just around the corner.

YEP! Just what everyone needs, A car that caused Canada to be strip mined so that more Chinese people can work in a hazardous factory ran by coal for a car that runs on coal!
It's so green it makes me sick!

Anything is possible if you don't know what you are talking about!

nice idea just not practical
if there was enough of them on the road, guess what can happen next
Your hydro bill goes up because of demand.

so for the lucky gas car owner you'll be hit at the pump and when you get home you'll be hit at the meter when you cook dinner
