I am really tired of reading here and elsewhere on the web that one of the reasons that the Volt is not selling as well as it should is that it's advertising/marketing is not effective.
I am no advertising executive, but I do have to explain to others- sometimes simply and quickly and in...
Hi, I am about to buy my new 2014 Volt, really excited, but not sure yet! Does anybody know of a good Volt dealer in Tampa area? I mean someone who makes real good offers on Volts, but also knows how to support the customer. I am looking for a dealer who has experience and has been selling a...
I live in the Metro Detroit area looking for a great dealer that will do anything for a sale.
Any locations?? I been going to Hamilton Chevrolet for all my cars but I don't know if they will still give me a great deal I felt our sales person hates the Volt.
Is it a coincidence that cars with most dealer inventory out sell those with less?
Below are some Cars.com numbers as of this morning.

On July 2, 2010 nuclearboy and I each made predictions for the beginning of 2013. I haven't been active here for a long time, because I jumped ship and leased a LEAF, but I'm bringing our predictions back as promised. In all honesty, I would judge that we both missed the mark, but he was closer...
Excerpt from "The Street":
"October ought to have been a bad month for Volt. Gas prices were falling. Auto industry wisdom had it that with so many conventional cars closing in on 40 miles per gallon, why would anyone spend $30,000 for a compact? Also, the last month of the presidential...
I just wanted to make an announcement today that with the support of good friends and close fellow Volt owners, my creative agency and I are seriously getting geared up to make my 1st short film titled "EV Wars". Now many of you may not know me, but I'm the guy that organized the...
Says one dealer, "The Volt has an amazing amount of technology built into it. People who own one are very happy and great ambassadors for the vehicle. As word continues to build the sales will come." In other words, other Volt owners!
As another article pointed out "All in all, Chevrolet...
UPDATED WITH OCT 2012 SALES NUMBERS.
I've seen it mentioned how the Volt is doing versus the Prius during the same period, but I never saw the numbers. So I've compiled them. The data is in the attached spreadsheet, along with the links to the source data.
These are USA sales specific. I show...
I just obtained the VOLT Canadian and Quebec Sales result !!
214 is a lifetime record (the highest was is may 2012 with 211.
92 in Quebec is the second lifetime highest ...
By the way, we are doing the same guessing for the VOLT sales numbers, but for...
This so-called "sales failure" has higher sales to date this year than roughly half of the other 260 or so models sold in the U.S. Would you have expected the Volt to outsell both the BMW 7-Series and the Mercedes-Benz S Class, Lincoln's large sedan, the MKS, for example--not to mention the...
I have been following very closely on production and sales numbers for Volt.
Each month GM announces Volt Production and Sales figures.
Somehow, monthly production numbers do not add up to the cumulative production numbers at the end.
For example, 2013 Volt Production Number in June was 239...
I have been noticing a lot more 'Hi, I'm new' threads on the board. It seems like there has been about as many as the month of March when the Volt almost sold 2300 domestic. It would appear all the deep discounting for 2012s is starting to move inventory.
My analysis: This month is REALLY...
Finally, the sales numbers came from GM Canada.
Only 118 VOLT were sold last month in the entire country. I'm still waiting to get the sales numbers in Quebec.
Here is more details about sales numbers ...
Hello all !
I finally got the Prius line sales numbers in the province of Quebec from a Toyota contact.
Just to remind you that last May, 119 VOLTS were sold in Quebec (per capita, thats 3 times more than the USA and 5 times more than the rest of Canada).
In Quebec, the 3 Prius (Original...
