Chevy Volt not electrifying enough to remain in production

Western Free Press has previously covered the numerous reasons for the infamous electric vehicle’s failure, but today we can say for certain that the Volt has failed to get car buyers charged up.

GM’s spokesperson said, “we are seeking to align our production with demand” as the company furloughed the 1,300 workers responsible for the production of the Volt for five weeks.

This, despite Obama’s claim that, “five years from now, when I’m not President anymore, I’ll buy one”.


Readers, which do you think is more likely:  that Obama will be elected to a second term as President, or that the Volt will still be in production five years from now?
