Your reasoning is valid but you are leaving an important part of the equation out of your discussion; there is a limit on sales for this R&D cost and sales don't come close to showing break even much less a profit. The question is really how much GM [IE taxpayers] will lose from the sale of the Volt. Unless Volt becomes immensely more popular there will be a loss with each car sold therefore it is not a profitable car.

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...
