GM thinking of doubling Chevy Volt production to 120,000 units in 2012
In December, GM North America President Mark Reuss said that there is a limited number of battery cells that vendor LG Chem can produce for GM. Not sure how (or if) this problem has been solved, but Bloomberg writes that GM is trying to get all the Volt's suppliers to increase their output so GM can make enough Volts to meet demand. One analyst believes that GM will be able to sell every Volt it makes as long as the $7,500 federal tax credit is available. The first 200,000 Volts GM sells will qualify for the credit, so it might run out in 2013 if these new production numbers pan out.
