2012 Chevy Volt Production Tripled

2012 Chevy Volt Production Tripled

GM production facilities have started building the 2012 Chevy Volt in Detroit again. The Michigan plant hasn’t produced a Volt for a month now but are returning to it hard by producing them at triple the previous rate.

The increase in Volt production is critical to GM competing against other plug-in electric and hybrid vehicles in the U.S. By the end of June the Nissan Leaf had outsold the Chevy Volt by 3,875 to 2,745 cars. Since then the Leaf numbers have continued to climb past the 4,000 mark.

But the Nissan Leaf is about to see a price hike, accompanied by the Volt’s increase in production this could cause their positions, in terms of sales, to reverse.

    The Nissan Leaf should have a price hike…like about $20,000 that’s what the Japanese do to our cars.. they put a $20,000 tariff on any car we try to sell in Japan!!! Level the playing field and see who sells more. Put the same tariff on Japanese cars as they do to our cars… then show production numbers.
