The point that I was making is that the number of second generation Volts being offered for sale in mainland Europe is pretty much the same as the average number of first generation Amperas and Volts that we see for sale at any given time in the UK. Given that there are around 1300 first generation Amperas and Volts registered in the UK, it would be reasonable to make an assumption that a similar number of second generation Volts could be running around in mainland Europe. There are examples of the second generation Volt being offered for sale in Germany, Holland, Belgium and Poland - not all of these countries host US military forces. And, they must be getting maintained somewhere . . .Maybe they are from US military bases as was suggested with the one you saw near Oxford/Banbury iirc? I would guess that the military would then be responsible for maintenance whilst under their ownership. Also there were reports of the volt1 being supplied to military bases in 2012/3 so maybe this continued.
