General Motors is increasing Chevrolet Volt production numbers in 2012, from 30,000 to 45,000 to a maximum output of 60,000 units.
The increase in production to maximum capacity will conincide with the nationwide rollout of the Volt. Doug Parks, vehicle line director in charge of the Volt, said that “Starting in ‘12, we’ll be at this max rate of 60,000,” Parks said. “If we think this thing is crazy higher volume than we thought, we have the ability to increase volume and crank that up.”
GM will build about 10,000 Volts in 2011, of which 5,000 will be exported to countries like Canada and China.
