The Volt will be a huge triumph for GM if it launches on schedule and with few problems.
I hope its a hit, but I have a very strong feeling that, due to the car being rushed into production 10 years ahead of schedule, the car will be a flop.
There was a post on here a while back about the Volt being rushed into production to help with CAFE and that GM was going to do 10 years of battery R&D in 2 months so that the Volt could rollout in 2009.
I'd always heard that they were going to take there time and get the battery R&D done before putting it into production. I seem to remember a post on here a wile back about them squeezing 10 years of R&D into 6-18 months so they could have the car ready for rollout in 2010. But, I could have miss read it. Need to get more sleep and less homework done each night.
