It’s all part of the government’s plan to make its military more environmentally friendly, and given President Obama’s love for the Volt, it wouldn’t be a surprise if a good percentage of those 1,500 vehicles come from Chevy. This summer, the Department of Defense added a pair of Volts at the Marine Corps Air Station in Miramar, California, and will bring 18 Volts to Joint Base Andrews in Maryland.
The Volt hasn’t exactly been a huge success, and earlier in the week Reuters went so far as to publish an article claiming the American automaker was losing around $49,000 per Volt sold. GM, however quickly issued a statement denying the claim, and continuing to stand by its Volt.
