GM may kill Chevy Volt, Sonic and 4 Other Cars

DETROIT -- General Motors has put six of its cars under review, including its once breakthrough Chevrolet Volt plug-in hybrid, and is evaluating whether to cancel them in the coming years, according to a report from Reuters.

The news comes as sales of cars continue to plummet in the U.S. and as consumers increasingly turn to SUVs and pickups.

Besides the Chevrolet Volt hybrid, other vehicles believed to be under consideration for elimination iinclude the Buick LaCrosse, Cadillac CT6, Cadillac XTS, Chevrolet Impala and Chevrolet Sonic, according to Reuters.

GM spokesman Jim Cain declined to comment on the report.

UAW President Dennis Williams said Thursday the union is in ongoing discussions with GM, Ford and Fiat Chrysler about falling car sales and how to keep the automaker's U.S. plants operating at full capacity.

If the LaCrosse, Impala and CT6 are eliminated, what will the bishops, priests and nuns drive?

Sounds like another setup for government bailout money

They simply cannot compete with Japanese car makers.

I have a Honda now, the first one in my life, and it is the best vehicle I have ever owned.
I know many friends with Toyotas and they feel the same way.

I looked at a New Chevy Cruze for my son. I'm sorry, but the quality is just not there for the price they wanted. We ended up getting a new Honda Civic for the same price and the car is better made, has more options, and will have a better resale value than that Chevy Cruze, which is just a renamed Chevy Cavilier.

Had an f150, a dodge dakota and a jeep and all were crap (the f150 was ok). Have a subaru now and will never get anything else.
