Chevy Volt - officially the worst car ever made
Obama stupidly promised that he'd have 1 million Chevy Volts on the road by 2015. (Because Americans don't want to drive stupid electric cars, Obama decided to impose it on us with mandates and gov't incentives.) As of right now only 3% of that goal has been met.
As always with meddling democrats, their intentions are what's important, not their results. The Volt is over-engineered and vastly over-priced....so much so that GM loses $49,000 on every one that gets sold by the time you factor in the development costs, government subsidies, labor union costs, and buyer discounts. The only reason they reached 3% is because Obama mandated that government fleet purchases are for Volts only. Obama needed sales figures to be inflated since only the dumbest of consumers would buy such a piece of shit car.
Mercifully the Volt assembly line shut down last week, but you'd never hear from the media about what an abject failure it was because that would reflect badly on The One.
