Despite massive infusions of federal dollars, it appears that the Chevy Volt may finally be taken off taxpayer life support.
DALLAS - General Motors is suspending production of its Chevrolet Volt electric car for five weeks amid disappointing sales.
A GM spokesman said yesterday that the company will shut down production of the Volt from March 19 until April 23, idling 1,300 workers at the Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant.
[...]GM sold 7,671 Volts last year, below its original goal of 10,000 cars. It sold 1,023 Volts in February and 603 in January.
