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.
“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.
