Chevrolet Sells 1,380 Volts in August

Chevrolet Volt sales were steady as she goes last month, with 1,380 units sold.

This compares to 1,313 in July, is down 45 percent from August 2014’s 2,511, and mirrors a similar pattern for the Nissan Leaf.

Both cars are to one degree or another in lame-duck status, awaiting improved replacements.

This is especially true of the Volt which since May has seen orders open in California for the all-new 2016 model.

First deliveries are expected this fall, says the automaker, and at that point we may see an upsurge in numbers for the extended-range EV.
