GM's Chevy Volt problems appear to extend beyond battery issues: the WSJ reports GM was set to miss its 2011 Volt sales target of 10K units even before the NHTSA battery fire. Production and distribution issues played a role in the sales weakness, but the Volt's $41K price tag may have been the largest factor. GM hopes to sell 45K Volts next year, but there's growing skepticism about its ability to hit that goal.
