    Default SHOCKER! GM Sells Just 281 Volts In Feb, Nissan 67 Leafs

    GM sells just 281 Chevy Volts in February, Nissan only moves 67 Leafs
    by Sebastian Blanco (RSS feed) on Mar 1st 2011 at 7:47PM


    Peruse Chevrolet's February sales release, and you'll notice one number that's blatantly missing: the number of Chevy Volts sold. The number – a very modest 281 – is available in the company's detailed data (PDF), but it certainly isn't something that GM wants to highlight, apparently. Keeping the number quiet is a bit understandable, since it's lower than the 321 that Chevy sold in January.

    Nissan doesn't have anything to brag about here, either (and it didn't avoiding any mention of the Leaf sales in its press release). Why? Well, back in January, the company sold 87 Leafs. In February? Just 67. Where does that leave us? Well, here's the big scorecard for all sales of these vehicles thus far:

    •Volt: 928
    •Leaf: 173
    Ouch. The big questions, of course, revolve around one word: "Why?" Is ramping up production and deliveries still a problem? Is demand weak? Are unscrupulous dealers to blame? When will sales start to climb? And what are these numbers doing to plug-in vehicle work at other automakers? We don't know all the answers, but for more on February auto sales, click here.

    How many Legislatures that voted for the bailout of the UAW are driving a Volt?

    My guess would be; 0
    It's such a shame that in the USA, defending Liberty has become such a heroic deed.

    electric cars are not ready for prime time. less than usable technology being forced on an unsuspecting public for political and social reasons.

    how sad.

    wonder if those numbers will go up following a couple more months of sky rocketing gas prices?

    That's 16 Chevy Volts for each of the 57 states. Impressive. They should rename it the Chevy WAFWAT. Who can afford to buy a $45,000 sardine that won't even make it down the driveway before you have to recharge!!! Maybe next year when gas is $7 a gallon (thanks Barack) they'll sell a few more.

    How old are the Obama girls? Can they drive yet? I'll buy one when Malaria and Sharia buy one.

    Think you're right.....wondering how much the battery-dependent vehicles will drop in resale value when people start to realize how the batteries don't last and are really expensive to replace.

    these type of cars do not fit Americas driving style right now, who is going to drive them, only someone who has to commute daily in a bigger city or from rural to urban...but can they tow a boat,have a dog topper...America still loves their SUV's and pickup trucks, this isnt China and we dont all wear the Mao jackets and all work at the same factory
