Chevy Volt Name Car the Year in Europe

Posted by Steve Markowitz on March 11, 2012

Chevy Volt and its European sister, the Opel Ampera, have recently been named the car the year in Europe.  A panel of 59 members journalists of the European Car of the Year jury gave this award saying: “The Ampera and Volt won in a field of strong competitors, particularly on account of the outstanding technical progress they reflectWith its range extender, the Ampera presents a very sound new concept on our way to e-mobility.  By solving the problem of range anxiety, it is a remarkable step into the future of electrification.”

The Volt’s European award comes about a year after it earned the Car of the Year award in the United States.  These awards are curious given the cars total failure in the marketplace with General Motors last week announcing it would stop production for five weeks for lack of demand.  The disconnect between the product’s acceptance by the public and these awards at best indicates a disdain that the elitist press has for the public.  A more troubling explanation is the that Progressive governments are interfering with the suppoased free press.
