GM, Government Motors sold just 603 GM Volts in January. Are you serious? The pathetic 603 sales as caused GM to abandoned its sales target of 45,000 for 2012. YA THINK!!! GM might also want to fire the idiot who ever thought that 45K was even a viable target. As it is, GM only sold about 7,700 in 2011, far below it’s target of 10,000. What else would we expect from an Obama bailed out “green” car program?
General Motors extended-range electric Chevrolet Volt had its worst sales month since August, as negative publicity over fire risks hurt vehicles sales in January.
GM sold just 603 Volts – above its sales in January 2011, but far below GM’s best-ever sales month in December, when GM sold 1,529 Volts.
Last week, GM North America President Mark Reuss said sales of the Volt have been hurt by bad publicity.
Reuss said bad publicity from the government’s investigation into fire risks of post-crash Volts is “definitely a component” of the decline in sales.
Bad PR? Seriously? That tends to happen when cars catch on fire and you recall them. Let’s face it, there is no demand for this pricey car.
More from Powerline on the “Revolting” Volt. Nice.
