Right on!

Tammy,

We share your concern. I'm sure the GM executives understand how vital the Volt, and the E-REV technology, is to the future of transportation and the economy of the US and preservation of the world's non-renewable resources. You're right. We have to stand together in support of these interests.

I would also think that GM would realize that with this new technology it would create new jobs for many Americans. I, too, want the Volt to stay a Chevy. I heard a while back that they were considering to make it part of the Cadillac fleet. Gee, then no one would be able to afford it.

A 2,350 lb Saturn would be OK. :) Oh, they had a 2.350 lb Saturn in production for over 10 years, but they scrapped it to make bigger heavier cars, just in time for $5 gallon gasoline. God help GM.......

This brings up a very interesting idea. Sell the Volt. What if GM goes though all of the costing and decides it cannot compete because of the labor costs? What if selling the entire program to Tata of India for example would result in car that costs only $25,000 and can be produced in the millions of units with very high quality (don‘t say it‘s not possible - remember what they said about Japanese cars when they first came to America)? What if the revenue generated from that sale allows GM to remain in business? All probing questions. Hummm, Tesla buying the Volt. Think of the possible cost reductions...

I for one would love to see GM carry the ball into the end zone. A rebirth of the American auto industry. We would once again be able to hold our heads up high when traveling around the world, "Oh, you have the Prius? We have the Volt." The place goes quiet and they have to nod their heads in agreement. Priceless.

I'm not going to support a foreign country (in a financial sense)! If GM sells the Volt to India, how does that help Americans and the economy of this country? Does this mean more people go without a job? For if the trend continues that these companies decide to sell off American technology and production, then no one here is going to be able to buy anything. After all, if I don't have a job, then I'm not going to be buying a new car. It'll be enough that I can keep a roof over my head!

If GM sell to another country. My share would go up if I have shares. It all for shareholder, not for consumers. If another country say they still make cars in the U.S. then there is nothing to worry about. If not, Then it time for me to find the next best move to find ways to get off the oil. I had lost my job and I had found another job. I can't rely on the goverment handout. The world don't stands still, It always moving. If you see a problem you better change cause the world is not going to change for you.

I don't want to see GM for sale. I don't see that will happen yet. I'm aware that it can happen. I would not gripe what going on with the world problem.

Sorry

GM is practically a foreign company. Last GM products I looked at said MADE IN MEXICO, MADE IN JAPAN or MADE in Canada. Only the debt and pension remain in the US. That said, I'm in line for the VOLT and pray they can pull it off.

OPEC SUCKS said all "practically a foreign company". I do agree with that. I should have said it before. The correct word is "a global company". :)
