    The Chev Volt

    Great Job GM while the Japanese are stealing jobs from Americans while Manipulating the YEN down big against the Dollar again today,
    As an expensive and high-tech hybrid car, General Motors' GM Chevrolet Volt was expected by many to fail. Its sluggish sales have been widely touted as a sign of its failure.

    Yet, in the second half of 2012, sales of the Volt began to accelerate. In fact, the car managed to outsell half of all U.S. cars, putting it squarely in the middle of the pack.

    GM released its December sales Thursday. In total, the car giant sold just over 23,000 volts in 2012.

    In March, things weren't boding well for the Volt. There were a number of issues hampering its growth and sales: Customer confusion over its gas-and-electric technology, as well as a government investigation into post-crash fires.
