Seen on an otherwise kinda interesting article from Forbes about how Volt sales didn’t match what GM expected, and how the company is choosing to direct its advertising in another direction for the revamped Volt:

And that’s not just for the month of July — that’s the trend for the entire year.
I expect this kinda thing from BusinessInsider.com — I don’t expect it from Forbes.
