    Next-Gen Chevrolet Volt To Become More Imposing

    Remember the 2007 Volt concept? It was a muscular, bold, and imposing electric vehicle. Compare it to the production Volt and the two almost have nothing to share, aside from name, powertrain, and some design ideas.

    Recently at a event in San Francisco. John Cafaro, Director of Exterior Design for Chevrolet gave some indications and clues as to what to expect in the next-gen Volt.

    Cafaro mentioned how the guys at Chevrolet were impressed with what Opel did to the Ampera to make more aggressive.

    "We're going to do some things with the Volt down the road, make it a little more monochromatic, a little more road-hugging," Cafaro said.

    Cafaro also talked about how they're watching the competition when designing future models.

    "We've got one bullet in the chamber with the Volt. We're getting some feedback. We've already built a body of research. There are a lot of different camps. From a design perspective, people want an exciting vehicle. Now, what does exciting mean? A lot of zoom-y lines? Deep cut forms? A lot of muscular shapes? We are looking at all the different kinds of design DNA for how we proceed with this technology. Nothing is left off the table. No idea is a bad idea."
