The Chevrolet Volt should eclipse its 2011 sales total by the end of June, and is apparently on pace to sell 20,000 units this year. It’s also outselling a major Chevrolet nameplate.
Wired magazine is reporting that based on sales data via GM (which is apparently based on “deliveries”, though Automotive News and other sources show identical numbers) the Volt is outselling the Corvette. 7,057 Volts have been sold versus 5,547 Vettes.
It’s hardly fair to compare the two cars. They are wildly different, and the C6 Corvette, as great as it is, is now old news, and the C7 is just around the corner. The more interesting story here is whether the Volt can finally gain some traction in the marketplace and keep up the current pace.
