GM planning to make 36,000 Volts this year, 20% more than 2012

GM sold about 30,000 Volts and Opel Amperas (basically a rebadged Volt) in 2012, and according to what anonymous sources “who didn’t want to be identified because the target isn’t public” told the Washington Post, the company is planning to increase that number by about 20% to 36,000 in 2013.
