And Toyota should be renamed Oldsmobile. Most of their customers are baby boomers and about to die. This is why the Prius ev is in such bad shape.

OnStar is a very effective means of monitoring the Mindless Minions; I could have used it back in the fatherland.

Is Volt no longer in first place? Has Volt lost it's spark?
July sales figure are out. Leaf outsold Volt. 1864 Leafs versus 1788 Volts. Moreover, Leaf is ahead of Volt on a year to date basis.
Who woulda thunk.

I hope we can see Leaf take the yearly sales title from Volt, another car needs that title at some point. Sadly we wonít know if Leaf wins the sales title for 2013 until the end of December. For now congrats on the wonderful sales figures from all auto makers. Last but not least congratulations are in order for Leaf numbers. Exciting times!

Hopefully we can stick to the integrity this time, letís see how round 2000 goes. Walk that walk.

Volt had it's heyday when it had the market all to itself. Now there are more and better players in the game, and more yet to be heard from.
Volt is rapidly becoming a has been. Leaf shows the way.

Leaf owner. 2 cars. 2 insurance premiums. Mtc on 2 cars. Tires for 2 cars. Gas for 1 car.

Me. One car. Very little gas. No range anxiety.

My son is now achieving 47 miles at a full charge. His gas bill went from $345 a month to $45 charging costs. He paid $27,000 after tax, license, credits, etc. In 3 years he will save almost $10,000 on gas alone.

What an awesome car.

My little city is one of the greenest cities in the country.†It was ranked 1st in the nation in 2010.†Besides alternative fuels, we use lots of natural gas.

When a natural gas rig explodes, there is almost no pollution.†This just happened last week.

Not like an oil rig that explodes.†Poor Thailand is going to take a real beating tourism wise from this ongoing oil spill. Dirty, stinky oil!

The pollution my Volt †causes when driving and charging is almost nil.†

3 gas station visits in 19 months! What an awesome car.

Obviously Tesla has become a major threat to Volt enthusiasts. So much so that they now have to post ridiculous lies and make up preposterous stories about the car. Success always has a few misguided detractors.

<quoted text>Sounds like you're doing well. The only thing holding Tesla back other than the backseat falling out is the weight you have to push when the battery dies.
Why are you so afraid of Tesla? Too bad you're so intimidated by its outstanding success that you have to post these ridiculous lies. Or is it just because you hate to see success when you're such a failure?

Funny you said that. I was in a parking lot and checked one over and it does look like a Jaguar. They sold an estimated 700 this month. Looks like the back orders are now complete.

Here are the ev sales totals.

Strange comment, but Volt is #1.
It's dolt. He forgot that this is a Volt forum. He also thinks repetitive "judging" and using multiple personas is going to impress someone.

I guess he has to be more forceful now that his Canadian buddy is taking a breather.
