Wow! That is an impressive statistic! For the life of me, I can’t believe people are not ready to get off the fossil grid when one customer hasn’t filled his tank in over 7 months.
If GM is to have any success in the battle for mind-share, they should promote technological dominance, innovation, and data points which register with consumers. A few weeks back, all of media was harping on plant shutdowns at the Volt plants (I still don’t even think that was true but could be wrong) due to slowing or low demand.
WHY? Wake up people. What is even more ridiculous is that even as consumers look towards a green-tech future, one candidate (Mitt Romney) ridiculed Barack Obama in Debate #1 for spending $90 billion dollars on green-tech.
I am actually quite impressed by the tweet on a @chevyvolt. Time to buckle up and save some dollars while some U.S. States and Canadian provinces push the upper boundaries of $5-$7/gallon.
