Preproduction Volt

Astonishingly enough (not really) it looks like a new Insight or Prius.

The side view is kind of busy in a typical GM manner, but the front view is very handsome.

Nicely worded. I knew something was bothering me, but couldn't put it into words. That's exactly what it was.

Hi,

Here's a very high resolution (read: very large!) side view of this Volt:

AutoblogGreen

The rocker panel area is obviously not finished, and the exhaust pipe is hanging down rather awkwardly... The tail lights look like an rough attempt -- are they LED?

Hello -

I like it. IMO it looks better than all of the concept iterations. I wanna see it in white or silver.

Tons of Volt pix in this gallery smörgåsbord :

I think the first Production GM Volt is going to go to Greensburg, KS. I thought I saw that on the show. "Greensburg" on Planet Green. (Just about the only channel I watch anymore... Even "John & Kate +8" has gone drama.)

The hood looks like it has a built in deflector to kick air over the wipers.
