It’s hard to believe, I know, but dealers are turning away the coal burning Volt. Government Motors claims it’s the bad press from the right. It’s Bush’s fault!
I’m only kidding about the Bush comment, the CEO is actually blaming Rush and FoxNews.
I guess it has nothing to do with it’s little spontaneous combustion problem. The provable Volt fires only take place after crash tests and GM thinks that’s proof there is nothing to worry about.
Government Motors was ready and willing to provide the NYC market with 104 Volts to 14 dealerships, but they only took 31 of them.
Interest is waning in the coal-burning little green thing for some reason.
Obama is forcing 54.5 miles per gallon fuel efficiency standards on everyone. In order to hit that mark, every dealership will have to put plug ins on every lot. Dealers will be forced to take them for no customers.
I can’t understand why the people don’t want this inferior government car, we always accept inferior government products.
The Volt has a $12,000 body and a $48,000 price tag minus the tax credit. The heater is inadequate because it needs to preserve battery power so Volt owners in the North can expect to freeze in the winter.
GE’s Geoffrey Immelt agreed to purchase half the total produced of the car no one wants. He can afford it – he doesn’t pay taxes.
We paid $55 a share for it (union payoff) and it’s worth $24 today. What an investment! It is subsidized and creating low paying jobs at a cost of $50,000 – $250,000 in subsidies per car (wouldn’t it be better to just give this money to the workers and not put the workers to the trouble of making these green things, just asking?)
