General Motors sold 608 Volts in March, a small amount relative to larger brands, but more than double February’s tally. GM sold more Volts in March than it did in January and February combined.

For 2011, GM has sold 1,210 Volts.
1st Leaf : 2/28/2011 to 5/6/2013
2nd Leaf : 5/4/2013 to 3/21/2017

This is all a bit silly, really. Both makers are selling every one they can produce this year, anyway. It would only be news if cars were beginning to sit at the dealers.

We are not that sure GM is selling all the Volts. There are definitely Volts at some dealers people can just walk in and buy.

Random FYI to this topic: GM has just slightly over 400 Volts in inventory atm that are unsold.

So, about 25% of the reported sales.

Anyway, I think the sales of both Leaf & Volt will follow a hockey stick pattern. Once initial demand is met, the sales will drop a bit before (hopefully) taking off.

If their are unsold Volts the only possible reason is that greedy dealers are asking too much. The Volt, like the Leaf, has an enthusiastic early adopter customer base. If GM was able to produce more than the demand they would have been expanding the sales territory.
2013 lease ended, purchased a red 2015 SL Premium from Ray Ishak at Magic Nissan. Good deal + rebates + $7500 tax credit + no sales tax = Leaf for Sentra money.
