Chevrolet Volt Sales Fall by 50% in November
Apparently, the main reason behind this was an ‘inventory issue’ which, among others, affected the Volt’s most important market - California, which accounts for 34% of the entire sales. Dealers only had an eight-day supply of new cars, and thus, they could not keep up with demand, according to the Detroit News.
The reason for this was the retooling of the Hamtrack Assembly Plant, where the Volt is built, as it will also accommodate the production of the all-new Chevrolet Impala. This coupled with the impressive demand for the car left dealers with no choice but to accept the problem of the depleted inventory and wait for new cars to be delivered.
Still, Volt sales are going very well, and Chevrolet has sold some 20,828 units from the start of the year, through November, and once they sort out the inventory issues, sales figures will continue to go up, constantly and predictably, as they have done for a good few months.
