Not as well as their most optimistic projections but Volt sales are climbing.
And that crock about the Volt costing $89,000/unit to produce? They are counting the development costs toward the number of units produced so far, not for the total planned production for the Volt (and all of the other cars that will use technology developed for the Volt). That's like saying that an investor is losing 1 million per tennant on a highrise that cost $100,000,000 to build by counting only the first year's rent collected.
Reuters is hardly a right wing source.. it is one of the most respected news sources in the rest of the world if anything tends to lean left IMO.. But hardly a CBS,NBC,ABC, CNN left....
in the real world that is how they measure the true cost of building things.. not in your left wing fantasy land..
so far they had sold 13,500 through sep IIRC and much of those sales were at a very low interest rate for that month prior to that it really sucked donkey balls.. and the promise of a $7,500 government rebate..
Believe in your own little fantasy world about how great NObama has been for the green weenie world and dream little life is good dreams tonight..
