BRAKING SALES RECORDS: The Chevrolet Volt's sales appear to be picking up in California, and GM has claimed it will break monthly sales in August 2012.

General Motors claims sales of its Chevrolet Volt electric car will break the monthly sales record in August, 2012.

The company said it has already sold more than 2500 Volts in August. The previous record, set in March 2012, was 2000.


A spokesperson said about one-third of the sales were in California, where Volt owners can drive alone in car-pool lanes, while sales are growing in other states too.

So far this year GM has sold more than 13 000 Volts. The car cover about 60km on battery power alone before a small petrol generator kicks in to keep it moving.

Earlier this week GM announced the closure of the Volt plant in Detroit  to control inventory and re-tool for the new Chevrolet Impala.
