Chevy Volt May Face Transmission Delays, Due to Japan's Earthquake

The ongoing crisis in Japan is continuing to impact automakers and the entire industry, even American companies. Japanese suppliers of the Chevrolet Volt's transmission have been disrupted by the nuclear situation, which has a chance to delay production of the hot-selling electric car.

The Japanese plant that builds the high-tech transmission has been shut down in the wake of the earthquake and nuclear crisis. GM is not sure how long they'll be able to receive the transmissions from Japan, and isn't willing to count on an uninterrupted supply as they had enjoyed from before.

But as of now, Volt production has not witnessed any hiccups. "Volt production is currently not impacted by the crisis in Japan," said Rob Peterson, GM spokesman. "We continue to monitor the situation closely as we do for all GM products."
