Volt sales have averaged about 440 a month since the car’s launch in December. But GM shut the Volt’s Detroit-Hamtramck plant in June for about a month for upgrades before the 2012 model year arrived. Since the average Volt has spent about 13 days at a dealership before heading home with a customer, weeks without Volt production meant weeks of slow sales, Bunker said.
Through June, GM had sold 3,071 Volts, falling behind the 3,894 U.S. sales of the pure-electric Nissan Leaf, which runs only on battery power. GM is increasing production of the Volt to build a total of 16,000 this year and 60,000 next year, with some badged as the European Opel Ampera. CEO Dan Akerson has said GM may eventually build more than 100,0000 a year.

Nissan expects to deliver about 10,000 Leafs to Americans this year, the same as the number of Volts that General Motors plans to sell to customers in this country. Nissan has said its Smyrna, Tenn., plant will be able to build 150,000 Leafs annually after production of the electric car starts there next year.
Early forecasters predict the Volt's success over the Leaf. This is because with the leaf being 100% electric, for any long distance travels, a second car will be needed. Where as the Chevy Volt will go forever at 90+mpg provided you keep the gas tank full!
