The PR fiasco that stemmed from reports of Chevy Volts catching fire at a testing center contributed to a 60% M/M decline in Volt sales, to just 603 units, according to GM's (GM +2%) January sales report. Though even before news of the fires emerged, Volt sales were well below expectations. GM's sales report may be pressuring shares of electric car battery maker A123 Systems (AONE -1.2%).

    Hahahahaha! envirowhackos hoist by their own petard. One fracking well leak: INSTANT demands for banning the practice. One battery explosion (assuming its not due to Dan Rather slipping a bomb in there)...SUSPEND SALES OF ALL electric vehicles. NOW! Better yet yesterday! What did EPA know and when did they know it! Did He Who Must Not Be Middle Named apply White House pressure to suppress results? Where is CNN? Why aren't the front seats of the cars being Occupied by Wall Streeters? Not enough room for garbage, probably.


    Golly...being a liberal is fun!
