Not offical but i think production will increase monthly to a planned
12000 this year and 25000 next year. I think all 12000 this year are
sold. i did hear they were going to try to increase this year, my
opinion is they are waiting on feedback before increasing. Many thing
happen when general public get their hands on them. Right now they are
sold in a limited market area. Depending on the rise in gas prices this
will be a break even car or a money maker. The Prius didnt sell all that

got it right with the Prius and the volt should compete very well, i

electric will do it. I read that one test drive in cold weather and the
heater on etc. the all electric leaf got like 25 miles on a charge.
I like to get an all electric when I buy a new car.

I have three tractors I use occasionally and there are always
something wrong with them and especially after standing a few months
It really does not matter that the things going wrong tend to be small
and easy to fix once you know what is wrong but if it means the
machine does not move then at the time it is a major issue and I can
not do what I intended.
I have an electric bike which has problems after standing around
without being used too.
It seems to be similar to muscles you do not use much they seem to
I have an old Volvo I do not use much either but it never has any
problems so different manufacturers seem to be able to do things
