Now, this story over at USA Today: GM may kill Chevy Volt, Sonic and four other cars.
General Motors has put six of its cars under review, including its once breakthrough Chevrolet Volt plug-in hybrid, and is evaluating whether to cancel them in the coming years, according to a report from Reuters.I guess the Bolt is safe for now. There is a 105-day supply inventory for the Bolt. By the way, GM said Bolt was being hurt by its Sonic sales -- FNB -- which, I guess, is the reason for killing the Sonic -- to boost sales of the Bolt. Whatever.
The news comes as sales of cars continue to plummet in the U.S. and as consumers increasingly turn to SUVs and pickups.
Besides the Chevrolet Volt hybrid, other vehicles believed to be under consideration for elimination iinclude the Buick LaCrosse, Cadillac CT6, Cadillac XTS, Chevrolet Impala and Chevrolet Sonic, according to Reuters.
Meanwhile Tesla says it will deliver thirty Model 3 cars at the end of this month; and, oh by the way, Musk Melon has said his plans for a Model 3 with a solar panel roof have been "put to rest."
