Chevy Volt sales surge as car remains political piñata | 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.
