GM to double Volt production to 120,000 units in 2012?
In December, GM North America President Mark Reuss said 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 the automaker can make enough Volts to meet demand. One analyst believes 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 could potentially run out in 2013 if these new production numbers pan out.
