In the US this is largely a result of the large tax credits. It will make December sales artificially high and January sales artificially low.

That's very true...
it's also because obama wants to sell his volt...
why else do you think gas prices are so high.

Volt sales tank in January to 1,140 units. Even with the ripoff $7,500 tax credit Obama can't sell that scamobile; look for more assembly line shutdowns from gubamint motors.

According to the Kiplinger Investment Group, the Volt is an excellent buy. You will recoup your cost against a like optioned Cruze in 5 years.
This is without the Credit:
"Perhaps the biggest surprise is that although the Volt and Leaf have stratospheric sticker prices -- nearly double those of the gas-engine Chevrolet Cruze LTZ and Nissan Versa S hatchback -- both have pretty low five-year ownership costs. The Volts costs come within $1,600 of the Cruzes and the Leaf is only $800 more than the Versa over five years."
European car sales tanked to a record low in January.
What happens when people call you out on your lies with verifiable links is that nobody believes you in the future. They will think that you are a liar.
Perhaps you didn't know that the whole industry slumped, eh?
