    The government bought most of those Volts. GM bought an entire fleet of Volts.

    I have yet to see a Volt on the road. Just one. I'm on the freeways all the time. I've seen two Nissan Leafs and a POTLOAD of Prius'. But not one single Volt. There are more Prius' than any other car. Sometimes the 405 looks like a Prius car lot.

    General Motors Co. saw sales of its plug-in hybrid Chevy Volt triple in 2012, CNN reports.
    The boost in sales came largely from California, where half of all Volt sales took place. The cars became eligible for the state’s much-sought-after carpool-lane stickers, according to CNN.
    Volt sales last year totaled 23,461, compared with 7,671 in 2011.
    The Volt is still, relatively speaking, a very poor seller for GM (NYSE: GM). However, it did beat out the Corvette, which sold only 14,000 units.
