GM promises to deliver Volt on time no matter what

Things may not be looking all that great for GM at the moment, but the automaker is vowing to meet its promised launch date for the Volt, even it doesn't receive the government aid it's been seeking, and despite the fact that some of the plants that should be making parts for the car are currently closed. According to The Wall Street Journal, while GM isn't saying specifically how it'll get the car built on time, it could possibly make it a top-priority project in the event the company's forced into bankruptcy protection and use what little funding it has left, or it could import the necessary parts from overseas. Needless to say, some folks remain unconvinced, but as AutoblogGreen points out, GM has really gone out on a limb with the Volt, and it can't exactly afford to start backtracking now.
