2017 Chevrolet Bolt: Overwhelmed By Chevy Volt

By  | 

The Chevrolet Bolt was supposed to be the EV model that everybody wants to get now and although the Bolt has been very well received, it looks like the Chevrolet Volt is doing an even better job this time around.

It has been reported that Chevrolet managed to beat their own all-time high record last month. The previous record was at 3351unit and in December, Chevrolet managed to sell about 3691units of the Chevrolet Volt. The previous record was set back on 2012 and 2013 so it is impressive to see it make a comeback just before 2016 ended.

While we will still have to see if the Bolt will eventually take over the Volt, right now, it is clear that the Volt is winning. The Chevrolet Bolt was released last month in Oregon and California. 579units have been release now.

Do you think the Bolt will ever be as successful as the Chevrolet Volt is right now?

    Comparing the December sales volume of the Bolt vs the Volt is complete nonsense. Chevy sells the Volt in how many states compared to the Bolt? How many did they produce of each and what how many days does each sit on a dealer lot.

    Easy answer is in the yearly numbers? Just winging. Did Volt sell between 30,000 and 45,000 in a year? GM is committed to see 30,000 of the units in a year. From what I can see in dealer interest, mass discount purchase programs, lift alliance, baby boomers who don’t need ludicrous mode or take long vehicle drives, andmany other reasons it’s going to sell many more than 30,000. It’s a matter of will on GM’s part. If they add on to waiting assembly lines they can certainly produce more than 100 vehicles a day. Revisit this in 2 months. If the assembly lines has added shifts then it’s a hit and GM is committed. Only draw back. Is it in their interest to loose $9,000 on all those vehicles.
