The Chevrolet Volt can probably be described as one of the most forward-thinking vehicles out of Detroit since the Ford Model T, and has been an unwarranted target of ignorant pundits and their flocks since its launch. With total January-August 2012 sales numbers resting at 13,497, it’s been criticized as a “flop”.
If that’s a flop, then so is the Volkswagen CC, which has sold 13,049 vehicles in the same time frame. Or perhaps the Lexus GX, which has only sold 6,772 units from January-September. What of the Acura RL, which has sold a laughable 295 units?
The point is, the Chevrolet Volt is currently outselling 129 of the 263 some vehicles currently sold in the United States. Which frankly, makes it a very decent seller when looking at the big picture.
