I manage help desk for an agency that has over 1500 employees, eight offices and will take in up to 75,000 calls in one day on occasion. One of my telephone consultants has been admiring my 2016 Malibu Hybrid with the Voltec 2 drive train. I would take him to lunch and would occasionally explain how I love the car and would have wanted a Volt, but it was just too small as I'm 6'4" and my kids are both over 6' already.

So, apparently he decided to look at replacing his 1999 Toyota GS300 with 400,000 miles with a Volt. He asked me tons of questions last month about the Voltec drive train, reliability, battery issues and whatnot.

Well, I convinced him. Last weekend, he pulled the trigger on a 2017 Premier with all the goodies and loves it.

Now, I need to switch careers and go into the car business.

Very cool. I've literally sold 9 Volts at this point to people in my company. We have a bank of 14 chargers, typically used by 2 Leafs, a Ford Focus Electric, a BMW i3, and the rest Volts. :)

Not sure why Chevy can't properly market the Volt. I've given two demo rides to curious folks and both bought a Volt.

It's not just the Volt that Chevy can't market. I sold half a dozen Cruzes back in 2012 just by giving people rides in them. My dad, a hard core Alfa Romeo fan even liked the way it rode and handled. I've given a couple of rides in my 2017 Volt and talked to people about the fact that I've only stopped for gas once this summer, and that was to fuel up while I had a dollar off a gallon for my trip later this month to see the eclipse.

As far as I can tell, if it isn't a truck GM's marketing department doesn't know what to do with it.
