The author says ... "the Chevy Volt- the car on which the company says it pinned all its hopes and dreams". I couldn't find any attribution this grandiose from GM. What I do have is GM's stated goal of having 500,000 world wide sales of battery tech vehicles of all types including PHEVS, HEVs and LHEVs by 2018. My guesstimate is this will be around 4.5% of their sales by that point. This would be a small but not insignificant component of their overall sales, of which plug-ins would probably be the smallest. For comparison, Toyota currently attributes 15% of their sales to hybrid vehicles.

After a year that can only be described as “stupid,” the Chevy Volt is gearing up to make 2013 even stupider still.

I know, I know.

You find it hard to believe that a mostly-owned subsidiary of the United States government and the Obama administration- like GM is- could get any stupider than say Fannie Mae, or Federal Reserve Bank.

Yes, that’s tough competition, but in the “idiocy” category GM seems to be the ruling champion.  

Not only have they lost substantial amounts of taxpayer dollars, they have managed to do it while generating record profits...
