The real question is ... how many have been sold in 2013? That's the real question. When calculating a car's sales numbers for a specific year ... you must count the car sold in that year.

Now ... he is right if he is speaking of deliveries only. So what? It has nothing to do with sales.

In other words ... he's spinning it to look like sales. He accuses us of spinning.

Plain English. Sales vs. deliveries. All Tesla deliveries were 2011 sales. Volt outsold the Tesla pre-sales in 2011, by the way.

OK Dolt, I know you are lacking in knowledge about the Volt. You really need to check out a topic before you comment. Here are a few folks that attest to the awesome car they drive. This is about how they gain lots of miles using regenerative actions.

"Same sort of thing here. My daily grind is about 30 miles each way, and I lose (going) or gain (returning) about 1000 ft. of altitude in the first (closest to home) 12 miles. Leaving the house in the morning with a full charge it'll generally be showing (now that it's "learned" my habits) 42 or 43 miles of available range. By the time I get that first 12 miles out of the way (secondary road, 45-50 mph and no traffic) I'll be seeing anywhere between 52 and 56 miles available. The Best I've done so far is to be At work having covered 30 miles and still be showing 34 miles of available range."

You can't win Dolt. The Volt was named Best Eco Car by two major publications. It won the Monte Carlo Alternative Fuel Rally, beating out the best bio-diesels in the world. They drove for hundreds of miles.

You can think all you want, but you are comparing your car thinking my car drives exactly the same way yours does. It doesn't. It puts miles in the bank when regenerative actions occur.

Let's try one more time.
The first time this was posted it was jumped on.
So we posted it again.
And again it was jumped on.
Yet another attempt to squelch it with a barrage of defensive rhetoric and personal attacks.
Needless to say, in spite of another entire page of same old same old, it's a fact.

Tesla has outsold Volt so far in 2013.

"Tesla Model S Leading Auto Plug-In Race.
Bloomberg April 27, 2013

Tesla is North America's rechargeable auto sales leader so far in 2013.
Tesla reports 4750 deliveries of its EV Model S sedan in 2013 to date, surpassing General Motors' Chevrolet Volt which reported 4421 deliveries in the same period.
Considering Tesla began selling its Model S in mid 2012, this is a remarkable accomplishment.
The Model S comes with a base price of $69,900, and Tesla hasn't begun shipments beyond North America. The Model S goes as far as 483 kilometres on a charge"

A mortgage loan gets a credit against interest paid. It has nothing to do with income. Period. It is a tax brake, or credit. Where in the world did you ever hear that interest paid on a mortgage is connected to income?

iluvmyVolt, the more you babble, the more you verify yourself to all as an ignoramus on most subjects. I will quote from a great American: "Tis Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt." You have as much creditability as a used Yugo salesman. You are doing the Volt more harm than good with your BS!

Sally said I can't believe the Volt won the North American car of the year award AND the European car of the year award and the Motor Trendís car of the year? Welfare dolt wonders how this could be.

He also wonders why the typical hunday owner is black and the average Volt owner is affluent succesful and white.

That's very true...

as it's his agenda to insure that only the fed and ge are the buyers...

as they are the only buyers along with the rentals...

in which is why he is trying so hard to raise the prices of gas to justify it all..

and that's all the Tax Payer expense of course.

What we all wonder is why with all the BS awards the Volt wins, why is it such a sales failure? And why hasn't any of the great automobile manufacturers of the world implemented the Volt's drive train in one of their cars?

That's very true...

so it's to reason why...

the unions and the obamamobile go hand-in-hand...

as the reason for our poor Economy to this day...

along with a president who thinks he has nothing more to do besides learn how to pay golf...

and thinks he knows better.

FYI:
In your country, mortgage interest and income are, in fact, connected.
Your federal government allows you to deduct mortgage interest against income, and your taxable income is reduced accordingly.
You're fortunate to have that tax credit.
We do not.

But you are correct in suggesting he uses fuzzy math to support many of his contentions.
You are also correct in stating there is no credibility there, and a lot of condescending rhetoric as well.
He most often uses a lot of slyly subtle but very pointed personal attacks, and then complains about others for the same thing.
That is a clear sign of an untrustworthy individual.
