In the face of that political dependency, it is deeply troubling that public notification of the safety concerns related to the Volt was inexplicably delayed for six months – a period of time that also coincides with the negotiation over the 2017-2025 fuel economy standards. The necessity of a full explanation for NHTSA’s silence concerning the Volt’s safety risk has been compounded by its lack of cooperation with the Committee.The committee's full 16 page report was released at a hearing today in Washington DC.
The New York Times and the Detroit Free Press were among news organisations that covered the hearing.
