I'd like to believe so too.http://www.plugincars.com/february-elec ... 06875.html
Just one data point, still.

She frequently drives to see her parents in Vermont which is 220 miles each way and not having four wheel drive just wasn't working, especially this crazy winter. Of the three Chevy dealerships I stopped at all of them said I could have a volt within two to three weeks as they were getting some in that were not pre-ordered. One dealer, Shumacher Chevrolet had one sitting in the lot waiting to be bought at MSRP. I even convinced them to agree to bring it to my restaurant and put it on display for an EV event I had planned, but it snowed that day and I had to cancel. I passed by the dealer a couple weeks later and the volt was still there.
Anyone out there that wants a volt at MSRP just call some dealers in NJ, they have them and no dealer that I went to was marking them up at all.
But there are people who know how to sell. They post on gm-volt and it gets sold quickly ...http://gm-volt.com/forum/showthread.php?7353
I've no doubt that there are Volt's sitting in some dealer lots waiting to be bought. There are also pending Volt orders to be fulfilled by GM ....
Essentially GM is using the old inefficient way of offering a Volt to its potential buyer. So it takes more time.
