SHN readers, you’re the best! Thanks for sharing Sad Hill News with the world.
The Chevy Volt used to cost taxpayers $250k per vehicle to produce. Anyone wanna take a shot at what the Chevy Volt cost Americans now? Now that the Obama-GM mafia is shutting down production of its exploding ‘technological wonder’ car?
Obama-GM Blame Low Chevy Volt Sales And 1300 Employee Layoffs On Sad Hill News
(Washington Examiner) General Motors Co. announced the temporary suspension of Chevrolet Volt production and the layoffs of 1300 employees, as the company is cutting Volt manufacturing to meet lower-than-expected demand for the electric cars.
“Even with sales up in February over January, we are still seeking to align our production with demand,” GM spokesman Chris Lee said. The car company had hoped to sell 45,000 Chevy Volts in America this year, according to the Detrot News, but has only sold about 1,626 over the first two months of 2012.
“GM blamed the lack of sales in January on “exaggerated” media reports and the federal government’s investigation into Volt batteries catching fire, which officially began in November and ended Jan. 21,” the Ann Arbor (Mich.) News reported.
(The Hill) “We did not develop the Chevy Volt to be a political punching bag,” General Motors CEO Daniel Akerson testified before Congress in the same January hearing. “We engineered the Volt to be a technological wonder.”
“This isn’t just the car we wanted to build,” a narrator says in the commercial over footage of Volts being manufactured in Hamtramck, Mich. “This is the car America had to build.”
