Chevrolet is on a roll.
Thanks to four-dollar a gallon gasoline, an earthquake that has debilitated the Japanese auto industry and a really good small car, Chevrolet was the country's leading seller of sedans in May according to Road & Track.
And even with just triple digit sales figures in the first few months of its limited market launch, the Volt is getting credit for creating new manufacturing jobs in the U.S.
Not a bad few weeks for a brand that's been battered about for years.
Now if the PR folks at GM could just keep Dan Akerson from saying things like...
"It's just like the Communist Party in China in the 1960s: There has to be a cultural revolution here."
...about the company he runs, that might allow the GM's critics to focus for a few minutes on the progress that's been made instead of his incomprehensible blather.
