CONCEPT: Chevrolet Volt

ew... the body looks far too big for everything except the wheels and the air vents in the front fascia... the grill should be larger... reach farther down the fascia maybe, the headlights are way to small... and the tallights may as well not be there...

easy fix... shrink the wheel size and lower the entire car... get rid of the excess space in the middle...

great idea otherwise... but design wise... not the best

Very nice. I hope this is a serious concept that will make production.

I also have a strong feeling this styling predicts the new Impala. The Impala will have traditional proportions on the Zeta platform, but this concept has "big car" and "luxury variation on Chevy theme" details all over it. The finer grille and headlight graphic, the sweep of the fender, the front wheel-to-cowl relationship, the hood lines and cowl treatment, the taillights with narrow chrome trim... I am out on this limb saying yes... we are seeing blatant clues into the style of the new senior Chevrolet.

The interior plastics are too hard. There needs to be more color on the inside. I'd suggest a rainbow sash across the dash. It better come with a 18 speed automatic or I wouldn't buy one. Can't they fit bigger wheels in those wells? There's no "T" on the hood. It's gotta be crap.

No offense, but I'm glad you're not designing my next car. It does my heart good to finally see a car without headlights the size of Texas and tail lights the size of Alaska. Trim, precise, great lines and integration of form: what's not to love?

I'm really glad to see an alt. fuel/EV that doesn't look like a pile of $h! on a go-cart chassis (Prius).

I hope the Pridiots are feeling like the fools they are.

I hope you're right Ocn, the face of this car and its stance and proportions are near perfect. I could see them improving on a zeta-sized car easily. Looking at the tails, it is easy to imagine the design morphed into a "3 rectangle" Impala design. I like this car more with each view.

Front has a very slight resemblance to the Ford Edge, but overall it looks really nice. Stance reminds me of the Torana TT36. Not a fan of the name though, reminds me of the Voltz, which is in turn a Pontiac Vibe. Any interior shots, other than the cutaway?

Note to GM: build it, but if it has Sony batteries, I'm out of this. Dell and Apple had enough of those guys.
