Hinting at weak sales, GM suspends production of Chevrolet Volt electric car for 5 weeks
DALLAS (AP) ' General Motors is suspending production of its Chevrolet Volt electric car for five weeks in hopes of reducing inventory to meet lower-than-expected demand.
A GM spokesman said Friday that the company will shut down production of the Volt from March 19 until April 23.
Spokesman Chris Lee says the auto maker is trying to maintain proper inventory while matching production to demand.
Chevrolet sold 1,023 Volts last month. It sold 7,671 last year, below its original goal of 10,000 cars.
