They sent 300 demo cars. So, they seem to be making some 700 cars a month every month.

They should be ramping it up for nationwide rollout ...

Are there any?

This says Canada is next for the Volt in 3rd quarter 2011.

According to this, the Ampera is still in 'show and tell' traveling road-show mode in the UK.

edit...never mind...you're probably asking about Leaf sales...

I've not seen any numbers for EU sales at all. Nothing for Japan after March.

Feb will be the "trough" in Leaf deliveries. Fits perfectly with the manufacture dates being shifted to the Japanese domestic market I thinks. March/April will be huge for LEAF deliveries according to dealers.

If the Volt can't make a splash right out of the gate it may be doomed sooner than I thought. I noticed GM removed all the LEAF bashing in there last round of ads. Probably would love to converts some sales from waiting LEAF buyers to those unsold Volts.
Not too many months ago I recall how GM's head was proclaiming how he "wouldn't be caught dead" in the Prius, because in his opinion, it's a "Geek-mobile". You'd think the head of a bankrupt company would realize that much of the reason the competition is more sucessful than you, is because the sucessful business is doing business differently than you are. That difference includes BASHING, or should I say, the lack thereof.

evnow wrote:LOL. Another Volt/GM fan post. GM was absolutely hammered by everyone when Volt prices was announced. Nothing has changed since then.

Nothing changed except for the fact that having the dollar go from 97 yen when pricing was announced to 82 yen when the dealers are invoiced means that Nissan is making $5000 less on every Leaf it delivers, This is what caused Nissan's COO, Toshiyuki Shiga, to say that the yen/dollar exchange rate had created a "crisis" for Nissan.

As for GM being "hammered" on price, the only problems GM has with the Volt is how to make more of them and how to discourage dealers from selling them above MSRP. Those aren't problems you have if you've priced a vehicle too richly. Given that there are waiting lists and that cars are going out the door above MSRP, all that "hammering" you thought you heard was just the sound of empty barrels.

Rather than GM over-pricing the Volt it would seem that Nissan under-priced the Leaf. Because it set a low price it had to create a customer allocation model which it had never used before. That hasn't worked out too well, as can be seen by the fact that the most active threads these days relate to class action solicitations and the outrageous price of "orphan" Leafs. Nissan would have been better off with a higher price.

Sales of the Nissan LEAF 100-percent electric vehicle reached 1,142 units in May, for a total of 2,167 deliveries this year.

If the spreadsheet is to be believed, 62% of those cars went to California. Can someone tracking the CVRP figure out what the "lag" is in potential claimed rebates? It's pretty important to those of us still waiting for delivery.

I did the easy math. 62% of 1,142 is 708.04.

My tracking shows 672 CVRP rebate claims in the month of May. That compares with only 272 in April.
