GM planning on 20% increase in plug-in hybrid production in 2013

The Volt is not the car we were promised, and that is why GM had trouble selling them from the start. We were promised an aggressive (See VOLT Concept) Electric car, and what we got was a Hybrid (in all intents and purposes) with bloated styling. The ELR is certainly a massive step in the right direction, but frankly, I see more Leaf's on the road than anything else, whenever I visit the states and Canada. I suspect the 20% increase in production will come strictly from the ELR, and not the Volt. While sales were up last year, I still don't see the Volt being badged as a success for GM anytime soon, unless you consider "false promises" a successful venture.
