Chevy Volt Sales Slow; 2015 Production Halts


(WLNS) – General Motors is putting the stop on making more 2015 Chevy Volt cars.

The automaker says sales of the electric car are down this year, almost 50 percent compared to a year ago.

Auto experts say the slow sales could be related to lower gas prices, which is the biggest selling point for electric cars.

But it is not all bad news.

GM is still planning to build the new 2016 Volt to be ready this fall.
