The Chevy Volt is a travesty. When I see one on the road my stomach turns. According to the Mackinac Center, we the taxpayer drop over 200K into each and every one of the vehicles.
Plus, the cars still have a tendency to ignite. According to the attached article the fire problem which became public late last year has not been resolved.
By the way GM at its current stock price still owes the American public about $30 billion.
GM should have died in 2008. Cadillac would have survived because they actually make a pretty good car (because Mercedes and BMW have beaten them over the head for 2 decades). And the Corvette would have lived. Chevrolet might have survived in a much smaller form. Today GM would be a much leaner, meaner, and not to mention a better company.
But what we got instead was the Volt. A horrible, expensive, boondoggle called the Volt. Unless you like stealing from your fellow citizens don’t buy Chevy’s disaster. Buy a Prius instead. Toyota knows how to make a fuel efficient car which is also profitable, and isn’t that what we should be encouraging?
