I recently became friendly with an owner of multiple dealerships in MA, one of which is a Chevy dealership. We talked this week and I asked him if had heard anything new on the Volt. He'd seen this video and told me that an e-mail had gone around to sales departments weeks ago talking about "substantial" changes in the final design. He was worried it was going to look more like a Malibu since all the engine/drivetrain mules so far are Malibus. That would be a huge mistake. People want the cutting edge styling to match the cutting edge powerplant.
