"At the Detroit Auto Show this week, CEO Dan Akerson admitted that General Motors may have to cut back production of the Chevrolet Volt because the 4,600-plus Volts on the market now are about three times the monthly sales. Other figures put the GM hybrid car’s inventory at an outrageous 120-plus days. By most accounts, 'Government Motors' has stuck with the Volt mainly to please the Obama administration, which still owns a third of its stock in the wake of the 2009 government 'rescue' of the company."
