Chevy Volt sales fall in February
March 4, 2011 — Sales of Chevrolet’s Volt were down 40 units in February compared to January sales, according to the company’s monthly sales report.
GM sold 321 of the new plug-in hybrid electric vehicles in January and 281 in February. The numbers were released shortly after GM announced plans to make the Volt available nationwide by the end of the year.
At the end of January, the car had been delivered to customers in the Washington, D.C. area, California, New York, Connecticut, New Jersey and Texas. Deliveries to Michigan are planned this spring and the car is supposed to be available nationwide during the second quarter of the year, with deliveries starting on the east coast.
Overall, Chevrolet reported a February sales climb of 69 percent in February when compared to the same month last year. Nearly half of the month’s 142,919 vehicles sold were four-cylinder models. The largest gains were made in Cruze, Equinox, Traverse and Silverado sales. Click here for more February sales highlights.
