"General Motors will buy Chevrolet Volts back from any owner who is afraid the electric cars will catch fire, the company's CEO said Thursday," the Associated Press reports.
"Three fires have broken out in Volts after side-impact crash tests done by the federal government. Akerson said that if necessary, GM will recall the more than 6,000 Volts now on the road in the U.S. and repair them once the company and federal safety regulators figure out what caused the fires," the AP reports.
Thankfully there aren't many of the Obama-mandated death traps to recall. Chevy sold only 1,139 Volts in November and will miss its annual sales goal of 10,000 cars by almost 4,000. Most of the cars that did sell were bought by, you guessed it, the government.
Despite pathetic sales and a lack of interest, and now the threat of the cars bursting into flames, government-controlled General Motors has dictated an inexplicable increase in Volt production.
