Chevy Volt .Cd drops 30 %

Apparently Cherolet has realized that a low drag count is important after all.

A quote from the article : "Aerodynamics can give a much larger boost to the range of an EV than decreasing the weight of the vehicle. These results were fascinating and hold true in both city and highway driving conditions. This is why the current shape of the Volt is 30 percent more aerodynamic than that of the concept. The Voltís design is still far from approval for production, and there are 45 people dedicated to the design "
