The FAILURE of the CHEVY VOLT is COMPLETE!!!! ( Government Motors = FAIL!)
Just like Solyndra, only on a much grander scale. This is what happens when a fascist government takes over an industry and manufactures a product to an ideology instead of the realities of the marketplace. More liberal FAIL!


The Press has failed to mention at least five Volt fires, myopically focusing on the one the Obama Administration hand-selected for attention.

The Press has failed to mention that the Volt fire problem remains unsolved. Is it the battery? Is it the charging station? Is it the charging cable? All of the above?

In more recent news, the Press has almost as one hailed the June Volt sales increase.

GM's Volt Sales Up in June

Surprising June Sales for Volt

Chevy Volt Leads US Plug-In Car Sales

Chevy Volt Sales Increases

Volt Records Second-Best Sales Month


The Press has for the most part failed to mention how pathetic this “second-best sales month” actually is. And even when one Dinosaur does, the unwarranted enthusiasm is palpable.

GM sells 1760 Volts in June, double from 2011

The Press also fails to put this pathetic tally in perspective.

The Chevy Cruze is basically a Volt without the dead-weight, flammable 400-lb. electric battery. Which makes it $17,000, rather than the Volt’s $41,000. Chevy in June sold 18,983 Cruzes - more than ten times the number of Volts. And that’s down 1/3 from last June’s 24,648.

And speaking of the Volt’s ridiculous $41,000 sticker price:
According to multiple GM executives there is little or no profit being made on each Volt built at a present cost of around $40,000. Furthermore, the $700 million of development that went into the car has to be recouped.

But wait - there’s so much more.

(A)dd $240 million in Energy Department grants doled out to G.M. last summer, $150 million in federal money to the Volt’s Korean battery supplier, up to $1.5 billion in tax breaks for purchasers and other consumer incentives, and some significant portion of the $14 billion loan G.M. got in 2008 for “retooling” its plants, and you’ve got some idea of how much taxpayer cash is built into every Volt.

Speaking of those “tax breaks for purchasers and other consumer incentives” - as of November of last year that tally all by itself was $250,000 per Volt sold.

Oh, and just as a kicker, the only reason Volt sales are up in June is because government purchases have increased by 79%. In other words, government crony bureaucrats are using YOUR tax money to prop up their own failure and us it as propaganda against YOU. Enjoy!

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 19957202


Sure they are, because the majority of Volts have been sold to government fleets. Of course you'd be satisfied with a free car that you can use at taxpayer expense, shilltard. And for the private buyers, of course you'd be happy when the taxpayers are subsiding almost 20% of the sticker price of a $41k car, shilltard.

The problem isn't that the tiny number of Chevy Volt owners aren't satisfied. It is that the millions of the rest of us didn't want to give GM billions of tax dollars so they make a car that very few people want.
"God forbid we should ever be 20 years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, & always, well informed... If they remain quiet under such misconceptions it is a lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty... Let them take arms... What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. " - Thomas Jefferson in 1787

Hey numb nuts,Fascism is whe corporations control the Government, which is what YOU want.

If you would think for one second you would realize as a matter of National security that the Government can not let American cars manufacturers be bankrupt and sold on the world market completely because they make our military vehicles. You idiot corporate fascist want America to let China make its military vehicles parts just as long as your board members see a profit.

not way to say. But if it's anything like the prius, which is rock reliable. The batteries won't need replacing for many years. There are Toyota priuses with 450,000 miles on them in Taxi service, still on the original parts. The batteries cost about 1200 bucks now to replace if needed. Hardly a big deal


not sure about the volt, i'm sure it would cost more

The hydrogen car (would you want to drive a rolling Hindenberg dirigible?) was a diversion, to stop the development of demand for the electric car.

It was obvious at the time that hydrogen is a stupid method, but it's nice to lump all the "environmentalists" together like this. Electric is promising, hydrogen is stupid.

Environmentalism is generally used as a method of social control.

When there's a nice environmental solution that just works and allows people to keep their freedom, that has to be buried.

I'm no environmentalist by the way, I own 2 cars and both have V8 engines. But I would be very happy with a small cheap electric car for short trips.
