This is a nice experiment given that the Cruze and the Volt are the same cars with the exception that one is all electric. The Volt even with all the massive subsidies that it receives has sold almost no cars. From Fox News
In August, and for the second month in a row, the Chevy Cruze was the best selling compact car in America, with 21,807 cars sold.
The Chevy Volt? Not so much.
Only 302 of the plug-in hybrids were delivered to customers, up from 125 in July. . . .
The total [sales for this year] stands at approximately 3,772.
With over 7,500 built since production began in late 2010, many of which are tied up as demos, and production currently running at 150 cars a day, GM is certainly on track to build more than 10,000 cars by Christmas break, but are the customers there to buy them? . . .
