The problem with the Volt all stems from the fact that the Volt itself was a politically motivated vehicle. It's sole purpose was to change the perception of GM in the minds of those greenies who had swallowed the nonsense that Chris Paine had managed to put on film.

The actual price and actual looks killed the Volt. Dead.
