It seems that GM had a better year with the Volt then anticipated, even though last month’s sales only tally around 100 units sold in the U.S.
The Detroit-Hamtramck plant rolled out 4,488 Chevrolet Volt models for the 2011 model year, and according to Michelle Bunker, GM spokeswoman, it is also “virtually sold out”. Apart from the few that are left for sale, the rest are reserved for a variety of company usage.
Chevrolet’s Volt first hit the market back in December 2010, and has a monthly sales average of about 440 units. most lasting 13 days at most on the lot. This figure may have been even higher, if it were not for a production shut down to prepare the plant for the upcoming model year.
