To note, the Chevy Volt currently on sale is the first-generation model. As such, the drop in sales of the vehicle can be more than explained by customers waiting for the already-announced 2016 Volt, which will deliver notable improvements in electric and total ranges, technology, and comfort.
While Volt sales were down 45 percent, overall sales of Chevrolet vehicles in the U.S. — which include sales of the Volt — dropped 1.52 percent to 183,098 units in August. See more GM August 2015 sales results.
