      Good news!

      Chevy Volt sales surge as car remains political piņata | TG Daily

      In early March GM suspended production of the Volt, idling some 1,300 workers. The company said then that it would bring back the workers and restart production late this month after it worked "to build market demand."

      Whether it was just good luck, good weather or something mysterious that GM did, it looks like that demand might finally be showing up.

      The Volt sales figure of 2,289 was 50 percent higher than the car's previous best month, December 2011, when 1,529 cars were sold. After falling to just 603 in January this year - amid talk of Volt battery fires - sales climbed to 1,023 in February before more than doubling in March.

      I'm only fighting with @Pace_Foods in order to gain the attention of @danicamckellar. It's like a real mellow John Hinckley situation.

      $299 lease special. No magic, no politics, no other crap. Great car, cheap lease. Moves them every time.

      We sold more Volts at Chevy last month than any other model.

      Sorry but the only people who treat this car as a political piņata are overextending themselves on Rams and firearms. I know this because I spent hours at the gun shop today with my infant and bought a Smith & Wesson.

      I just saw a commercial for a news broadcast (crap, forgot the channel) and it showed a Volt next to a prius. On top of each, it showed a battery slowly being emptied. After the volts battery got empty, it completly stopped, while the prius kept on with out emptying the battery. Pretty amazing how stupidly they are trying to shove the Volt down, and how people actually believe it all.

      Anyways, I saw my first Volt the other day, pretty nice looking car.

      ALRIGHT! Finally good new!

      I was getting a little worried considering I was seeing the same three Volts at my local dealer. Other day, I saw three brand new Volts in place of the older ones. Things are looking up

      Practically give a car away and they'll sell.

      I think you misunderstand. Neither does the government after its sold. That said, at least they get the cash from the sale and property tax. That will help us all out because the deficit REALLY needs it. So, in the end, its a return on everyone's investment.

      Sell baby sell, but please don't mandate that I buy one anymore than I already have!

      Even a little more with the tax credits people get for buying them. How much do you enjoy yours? I can't get anyone to allow me to use my portion.

      People get first time homebuyers credit for buying a house so i guess nobody should buy one, as long Chevy Volt provide jobs inAmerica i have no problem with tax credit, patriotic americans who hate Chevy Volt should realize it is an American product made buy american workers using american produced energy

      You also don't get any of the electricity my Dads PV array generates. Pity. When i visit him, I get free electricity that you gave him, and you don't get to use your portion.

      Wonder what would of happen if Obama did not rescue car companies and millions of jobs would have been lost , bet all repos would use that as negative agenda " Obama did not save true American icons , we lost millions of jobs under his watch"
