321 in January. I believe the number is more than 900 since December 2010, not quite 1,000.

If they sell enough of them they should get cheaper. Still a little concerned abot the battery life though.

But if they get cheap enough I would like to have one.

Volt's are only being sold in some test markets - NY/NJ, San Fran, maybe Texas so the numbers will be low until production is up and they roll out nationally.

We're not wasting our time on any Volt. We're waiting for this with the 300 mile battery option.

If our "leaders" had any sense they would be pushing these, in a way similar to how the Volkwagon was pushed by Hitler. I'm Not saying he was such a great guy. Government Motors had the chance BUT no brains.

If I was going to pay $40k for a car...the Volt would be at the very bottom of my list. You can get one fine vehicle for that kind of cash.

There is no possible way the government will make a profit on GM. Did you miss the part where I said they pay $40k to sell it for $40k? The new CEO is not a car guy or engineer, he is a marketing guy. GM will go the way of the DoDo bird. If you understood how thier books look at the moment you would cry. This after they robbed all of the shareholders of thier stock and handed the company over to the union lol. Ford will utterly destroy GM. Taxpayers fleeced.

The guy they put in charge of GM was CEO of Bell Telephone in St Louis,MO. He got mad because they wouldn't let him join St Louis Country Club so he moved the whole company to Dallas.

There has been a lot of talk about how the Volt is too expensive and too few are being sold to make a profit. Well, yes..... That is the case with new technology struggling to overcome the status quo. A hundred years ago when the automobile was first being developed, people said the same thing. Nobody believed that it would ever replace a good horse and buggy.....
