Despite huge government subsidies, the sales of electric cars are horrible

GM had predicted that there would be 45,000 sales of Volts this year.  Nissan had predicted sales of the leaf at 20,000.  Yet, during the first six months, only 8,817 were sold.  20 percent are being sold in California in part because of benefits such as being able to drive in the carpool lanes with only one person in the car.  But, even if the Volt sales are horrible, the Volt is outselling the all-electric Nissan Leaf by more than 3 to 1.

Markie Marxist sez: "Oh, my! It seems we Marxists will have to do a better job of shoehorning Americans into glorified golfcarts! Maybe in Comrade President Obama's second term. It's really just a matter of adjusting the financial incentives until the average American has little choice. Like we did with health care."

Obviously, we should have a penalty, I mean, a tax, on anyone who does not buy an electric car.
