Wait until they require a certain percentage of people to buy a certain percentage of Volts.
It’s only fair........
Make the UAW members buy the goddamn thibgs.
On the up side, they will be valuable as collector’s items.
^^Yah, I have an old paper weight thats’s worth about $50.
Ya know, if they did make it a steamer powered by nut or grain graded anthracite, it would probably get great mileage and have a range limited only by the need to fill the water tank.
280 of them were sold in Ann Arbor. The other one is in Al Gore’s 12 car garage.
Chevy Volt sales projection = 3,000,000. Only 2,999,398 to go. Get a Volt, while they last....

The Volt looks set to join the Edsel as a legendary automotive disaster. Gov’t Motors pushed the Volt into a market that didn’t want it. Not even the ringing endorsement of teh mole driving the first one off the line could help.
I might buy one if only I could find a charging place within 100 miles of here. And I’m certainly not gonna put a 500-amp circuit in my garage.
And what kind of stupid name for a car is “Leaf”?
Ray: So whatcha drivin’ JimBob?
JimBob: Well now, I got me a Leaf.
[Ray backs slowly away, a troubled expression on his face.]
Or maybe there just aren’t a lot available...It’s like saying pink cars are safer because only .001% of accidents involved pink cars when in reality it could merely be a numbers game...And the fact that no type of cars are flying off the lots. If 500 cars were delivered in January and 321 were sold, that’s a decent number. Not saying that’s the case for sure but it would certainly make sense.
Perhaps if they changed the name to the Chevy Shitbox.
At $40,000 mrsp it ain`t gonna sell. Course, if you are a RAT, you can get a $7500 Federal rebate( read OUR tax dollars...)
Too bad the Wisconsin fleabaggers weren’t driving them.
Maybe so, Toad. But for that to to the reason, we would have to accept that the incompetants at Government Motors could only produce a handful of road ready cars. Not sure which is worse, a million cars they cant sell, or selling 100% of their inventory because they can’t keep up with “demand” of 500 cars.
FWIW: The Chevy Volt gets only 28 miles from the battery if the weather is cold; nice fine print eh?
Hey Toad: If you really think you can piss on my leg and tell me it’s raining, then I would like to invite you to suck my motherfucking dick and call it a Snickers™.
And what’s not to like about Snickers™? Mmmmm… Snickers™!
”Perhaps if they changed the name to the Chevy Shitbox.”
Chevy is Sanskrit for shitbox!
Seems America isn’t amped up about the volt.
I wouldn’t say it’s open resistance, but we are choosing to leaf these toys alone.
Put a lightning rod on top and hope for a Lucky Strike. That would increase the range if you can stand the terror.
”FLASHBANG Awlrighhttt! Doan cry baby, that’s another 28 miles. If we get two more, we can have dinner at Cracker Barrel and get home! Whooeeee, what a great car!”
There’s already a jingle for that that could come out of retirement. L.S.M.F.T. - Lucky Strike Means Fuel Terror.
Resistance is futile:
Sorry, electrical joke.
reminds me of the time that we evacuated the building due to smoke.
after the firefighters searched with thermal cameras for the source, it turned out to be the fire alarm panel that had melted down. . .
somewhere I have pictures of it
