Chevy Volt, Nissan Leaf post small December sales

DETROIT - This was the year General Motors Co. and Nissan made good on their promise to bring mass-produced electric cars to the market. But don’t count on seeing one in traffic anytime soon. Sales so far have been microscopic and they’re likely to stay that way for some time.

GM sold between 250 and 350 Chevy Volts this month and Nissan’s sales totaled less than 10 Leaf sedans in the past two weeks. Production for both is slowly ramping up, and supplies are limited.

It will be well into 2012 before both the Volt and Leaf are available nationwide. And if you’re not one of the 50,000 people already on waiting lists, it could take six months before you will be able to walk in and haggle with a salesman over the price of one of them on the lot.
