GM halts Chevy Volt production

What a big surprise:

General Motors Co. will suspend production of the Chevrolet Volt at its Detroit-Hamtramck plant for five weeks, temporarily laying off 1,300 employees.

“We’re matching our production levels with demand and building to market,” GM spokesman Chris Lee told After starting 2012 with lackluster sales of 603 units in January, GM sold 1,023 Volts last month.

So the market wins again. For the thousandth time, if people wanted an electric car the government would not have to subsidize them. The public does not want them because they suck and have no range. Very simple to understand except for the super smart central planners in DC.
