Click either image to view full gallery of the production Chevy Volt

Ed sent us the top pic pilfered from the Transformers Live Action Blog and judging by the roofline, headlights and taillights, you're looking at the first picture of the production Chevy Volt. Not proof enough? Click on the image above and look closely at the metal plate in front of the sideview mirror. It's emblazoned with the four letters that spell out GM's savior. The Volt it is. Our boys at AutoblogGreen have already called upon the General's minions for a comment, but no response has been delivered to our inbox... yet.



UPDATE: We've found view video of the production Volt on the Transformers 2 set here. Also check out screen grabs like the one above that show the production Volt in full view in our gallery below.

      The car buying public is pretty darn conservative, as proven by the comments here. A lot of people like this Volt better than the concept. Granted the concept needed to change a bit for more interior room. But this is an attractive car that will simply blend in after it has been released. A car that had kept some of the concept car's looks would have stood out more, and been more likely to make me want it.

        The biggest problem i have with the volt is that it doesnt look like a $35k-40k car. Id love to buy this car, but there a few tacky things that make it unappealing (especially that horrid interior. Like people mentioned, it looks like an iPod. id expect that on a budget car. for 40k i want a grown-ups interior)

        OMG sexy. Now please tell me that that no-button interior isn't the real interior and I'm set.

        Combined with the official release of the front left quarter, we should be able to build the entire car now. Get the Chinese on that!

        Beat me to it... I just posted the link a few comments down. So far I love it minus the little bling infront of the mirrors (actually, the mirrors overall kind of bother me). Also those interior pictures posted on AB today werent that appealing either, but those weren't as concrete as the footage of the actual car so there is still that chance...

      Can someone remind me why anyone cares for this car?!
        • 6 Years Ago
        My guess is the shiny paint.

      While the larger wheels are less efficient on acceleration, a larger diameter is more efficient while rolling, with lower rolling resistance. This is why bicycle wheels are larger diameter. They also ride better.

      If the wheels can be made with a large diameter, but with equal or lower rotational mass, then it would be an efficient wheel.

      I kind of like what I'm seeing.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Looks great!

      Jesus this movie is just a 2 hour GM commercial. Camaro, Corvette concept, beat, volt. I mean the first one at least had some variety in the brands.

      And what happened to waiting on debuting this car? Everyone will be complaining that they've had to see it for 3 years and it needs a refresh by the time it comes out just like the camaro.

        In the first movie, every autobot except for Optimus Prime was a GM vehicle. This is the same here. You're only seeing the autobots (and there are a lot of them).
      • 6 Years Ago
      Is it really gonna have a flat black painted beltline below the windows in place of the see through doors on the concept? If so, color me very disappointed.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Do you have any idea how impossible it would be to get a good crash test rating if 65% of a cars door was glass?

      Damon -
      This isn't the "production" Volt. It is an integration vehicle modified to be used as a movie prop. Certainly the real production version will be pretty much the same but it is misleading to say it is the production version when the production tooling isn't even complete yet.

      It looks pretty sharp! I love it.
        • 6 Years Ago
        It's not a production vehicle until it goes into production.

        When people say "production" when talking about appearances, they mean it has the final appearance of the production vehicle.

        How do you know this doesn't have a proper drivetrain in it? I agree it's likely it doesn't, but maybe GM is going to surprise us.

      I don't care for cars made after the 1980s, but even this is impressive.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Looks like it'll be a winner. The Volt can't be as racy as the concept--the actual car must hold humans who must be able to see out of it, and the car must be capable of being mass produced.

      I hope GM scores a big one here!
