    Default How many 2011 Volts?

    Today I read that "GM has sold 2,745 Volts through June 30" and "There are fewer than 100 2011 Volts on dealer lots"; putting these two staements together, it seems that there are fewer than 2,845 2011 Volts in existence. Yet the VIN of my Volt is 3949...what am I missing? Can anyone clarify GM's numbering scheme, or how many 2011 Volts were built?

    Thanks!

    Michael

    Has anyone obtained a volt with a lease with 2.5k down and $350 a month? Here in Texas its not possible. I've been to two dealerships and the lease is a nightmare. Very disappointed with the lease program or lack of one!

    I would have thought those would be considered sold units since I am sure they didn't get them for free.

    There are quite a few 2011 Volts that belong to a fleet.

    Hi everyone,

    This is Doug Wernert from the Volt team. Hope I can help clarify:

    Our Detroit-Hamtramck plant builit 3,975 2011 Chevrolet Volts since start of production in November 2010. To date, nearly 3,200 have been sold to customers through Chevrolet dealerships, roughly 550 were delivered to dealers as demo units and about 150 held for internal purposes (marketing and engineering). The remaining units are still available for sale. The 2,745 number you may have read are for the 2011 calendar year, not the model year.

    One note: the Volt's delivered to utilities throughout the United States are refurbished pre-production units and total sales to fleets were fewer than 200.

    Thanks!

    Mine was number 3960. Almost the last one built and the highest number I have seen so far. Makes me wonder were the last ones went.

    >> GM has sold 2,745 Volts through June 30

    This should be calendar year numbers (Jan1-June30). So, IMO, doesn't include VINs from 2010 end of year sales. And Demo units, etc.
