Chevy Sells More Volts In Six Months Than Tesla Sells Roadsters Ever

Chevy Sells More Volts In Six Months Than Tesla Sells Roadsters Ever

Tesla Motors, hailed by all as the saviour of the planet, has been selling the all-electric Roadster model since 2008. Three-and-a-half years later, the automaker reports it has sold “more than 1500” of the electric-powered two-seaters.

GM, the automaker that “killed” the electric car, began selling the extended-range electric Chevy Volt this past December. Six months later, the automaker reports it has sold 1703 may-never-need-petrol-if-you-rarely-drive Chevy Volts.

Are these two vehicles at all comparable? No. Is this a race that’s relevant? No. It is even a race? No, not really. But, if selling “green” were a race, I think GM’s about ready to lap Tesla.

Then again, at 573 units, Nissan sold more Leafs this month than Chevy sold Volts (493).
