The Volt, which can go 38 miles on battery power, has been a hard sell at most dealerships.

General Motors will halt assembly of the Volt for at least four weeks starting next month.

The Detroit-Hamtramck plant is expected to be shuttered from Sept. 17 until Oct. 15.

GM also notified suppliers last week, according to another source in the supply chain.
