InsideEVs article on the Volt sales numbers for September has some interesting tidbits in it:
http://insideevs.com/chevrolet-volt-...ber-1394-sold/I'm not sure if the "two other Voltec models" includes the ELR - but either way that means at least one car we haven't seen yet (the long awaited CUV/SUV?)Our earlier question of “Why the heck is Chevy building so many darn Volts this summer?” (after well more than 10,000 had been available in August) was answered as General Motor’s idled the Volt’s Hamtramck Michigan in late August…and plans to keep it that way until the middle of November.
The reason for the shutdown? Putting to work some of that previously announced $384 million dollar investment into the facility to prepared for the next gen Volt (due out in mid-2015), two other Voltec-based plug-in models … and a great big whale of a Cadillac that we will never mention here again.
Also,Since the 2016 Volt is supposed to first show up at NAIAS in late January, it seems like the new ELR will show up first?But, not to fret if you are an ELR fan, it will return at some point in 2015 as a 2016 model year car – complete with “engineering enhancements“. The new 2016 Cadillac ELR will debut at the LA Auto Show in November.
