Chevy Volt Production Line To Be Idled

The Chevy Volt production line will be idled in response to the non-response to the Chevy Volt.

The government tells us the Chevy Volt is good for us. So are steamed vegetables and colonoscopies, I suppose.

When the American people ask the Volt “Whose your daddy?” it replies “Uncle Sam.”

The Volt still fails to sell despite massive subsidies:

The White House intends to boost government subsidies for wealthy buyers of the Chevy Volt and other new-technology vehicles — to $10,000 per buyer.

The flip side is that the Volt isn’t ready for prime time:

“When the market is ready … it won’t have to be subsidized,” [Rep. Mike] Kelly [R-Pa.] said.

How low are Volt sales? Really low.

The car company had hoped to sell 45,000 Chevy Volts in America this year, according to the Detrot [sic] News, but has only sold about 1,626 over the first two months of 2012.

In a speech to the United Auto Workers this week, President said he would buy a Volt “…when I’m not president anymore.”

I’m not sure if they’ll be making them eleven months from now, Barry.

About Professor Mockumental

I enjoy almost all forms of parody, buffoonery, and general high-jinks. Satire has shown itself to be an essential societal need; I therefore humbly offer my services in such a manner. I enjoy mocking the usual suspects at the New York Times (Charles Blows, Moron Dowd, and the earth is flat guy) and Washington Post (Dana Milkbag, E.D. Dijon, and David Ignoramus). There are many others as well, but sadly, there are always too many targets and too little time.
