According to GM's January deliveries report [PDF], the Volt, which was named Motor Trend's Car of the Year, last month was a bit of a letdown.

A whopping 321 Volts were sold, down from 326 in December. The Nissan Leaf, Europe's Car of the Year, fared even worse, moving 87 vehicles off dealers' lots. However, this is something of a win for Nissan, as only 19 Leafs (Leaves?) were purchased the month before.

Engadget's Vlad Savov wonders what's behind the anemic performance of such heavily-hyped automobiles.

"Before we all start writing off the EV as DOA (again), let's remember that both companies have massive back-orders for their electrified people carriers, leading us to believe that the most likely cause for this slow trickle of deliveries is a limited supply rather than dwindling demand," he writes.

Perhaps that's the case. Or maybe those folks who enjoy sitting around Park Avenue dinner tables complaining about gas-guzzling, carbon-spewing SUVs are more of the "do as I say, not as I do" variety...
