GM Selling Every Volt It Can Build

Through February 28, 2011, the company has sold 982 Chevrolet Volt electric hybrids.

Published: 10-Mar-2011

With gas price climbing and all the hype, the Chevrolet Volt wonder car is the most in-demand car that General Motors sells, the automaker said today.

That's partly because affluent customers want one of the $41,000 extended-range electric cars. And it's partly because there are so few to go around.

With Volt on sale for three months, GM says it sold 982 Volts through Feb. 28. Sounds paltry so far as far as car sales go, but the numbers will grow as the year wears on.
