General Motors is full of surprises. After yesterday’s unveiling of the the price tag on the Chevrolet Volt, the American manufacturer had a press release today in which it announced it’s intention of increasing the number of Chevrolet Volt units produced in the United States by fifty percent in the year 2012, totalling 45,000 units.
It is said that the increase took place because of more than 25,000 fans, if we can call them that way, which expressed their interest in the Chevrolet Volt. We still stand by our statement made yesterday, but it is clear that there is something definitely moving here. The question remains whether it will be a good thing or not. But let’s be optimistic.
The above announcement was made in the presence of President Barack Obama, which was touring the Detroit-Hamtramck plant. A good marketing call, by both the manufacturer and the President (hint: “The American Auto History: A Comeback Story”). The said plant is planned to be producing the Chevrolet Volt and received an investment worth $336 million to get ready for it’s production.
