It cost GM over 80,000 dollars to make each one. A whole assembly line for one car. Now another assembly line for the 2014 Caddy Volt Buy as many as you can Just remember the replacement battery are only ten thousand a pop. In 4 years batteries still cost the same. In 30 years a real collectors item with no batteries replacement.!
Wow are you ever a piece of work! So many lies is so few sentences!
"It cost GM over 80,000 dollars to make each one."
"A whole assembly line for one car."
"Now another assembly line for the 2014 Caddy Volt"
"Buy as many as you can Just remember the replacement battery are only ten thousand a pop."
"In 4 years batteries still cost the same""
Here is why you are still a low information child...
A. Show me the data where it cost 80K to make a volt...R&D cost are sunk and constant...with ever car sold you gain on those sunk cost not to mention that R&D will serve them in future models lie the caddy ELR and more. It doesn't cost 80K. The fixed cost to actually make one is below the sale price and dropping. GM is aggressively ringing out cost
B. That assembly line is a flex line, they make the cruze there too Einstein
C. The cost of batteries have been falling at a huge rate. Not long ago they were 1000 dollar per kwh, in 5 to 8 years less than 200 per KWH...which really makes you uniformed
D. Do you consider the Prius a success? Cuz if you plot Prius sales in their first 2 years with the volt sales in their first 2 years, you would see the volt well ahead of the Prius
I don't mind negative opinions when they are based on truth, you simply lie. Or let me be more generous and just call you misinormed
First each volt cost the taxpayers 7500 dollars second batteries still 10 grand a pop. Go to any repair shop and have them look it up. Remember to get the recharging station at home that is about 1500 dollars plus hookup. GM still has new 2012 on dealers lots. Since GM counts each car and truck sold when it leaves factory the dealers I guess is responsible for paying intrest on all this inventory. It cost GM hundreds of million to make the blueprints to start with. Design build the factory and add this cost to each volt. What an idiot defending a car that in 2014 will be the 5th year of a dud!!! GM will go belly up again!!!!!!!!
