General Motors Co. will halt production of the Chevrolet Volt plug-in hybrid car from March 19 until April 23 “to keep proper inventory levels,” according to Chris Lee, a GM spokesman.

GM sold 1,626 Volts through the first two months of the year in the U.S., where it plans to sell 45,000 of the vehicles. GM, which is based in Detroit, planned to make 60,000 of the cars this year. Last year, it sold 7,671 Volts, missing a target of 10,000 deliveries.

GM had began regular production of Volt Feb. 6 after ramping it up in late January following a shutdown, Lee said. Chief Executive Officer Dan Akerson said in January that GM would “match production with demand.”
