    Hah, I like the news that’s been coming out about the chevy volt. At first they were all sensationalist stories about how they halted production due to limited demand, and then it kind of started coming out that it was only temporary and that they are going to try to match demand in the future. Which obviously makes sense

      It makes sense to match supply to demand, but the Big Three have had a long habit of pushing vehicles on the dealers. This counts as a sale and revenue to GM even if the car hasn’t gone to a real driving end customer. They can’t overproduce forever, though.
