      Here's the kicker, nobody cares about the volt anymore. That train has passed.
        • 5 Years Ago
        ...more like derailed.

        With all the hype surrounding this Volt, will buyers get a hype-video to watch all day and night... to keep the love going? :D

      since this is a PR move. Could they put some decent wheels on it? The big "VOLT" on the side tells the world, hey this is the volt. Consumers will see it with the crappy wheels and will probably go "eww"

      ^^^because they aren't good at paying attention...

      The pictures of this Volt and the previous Volt pic on Autoblog is totally different, different, doors, mirrors, bumpers, hood, lights, its a different car...

        Are you retarded or just oblivious to what is going on? No crap they look different, one is a test mule while the other is the preproduction design example.

      Since GM has already teased the public with so many pics of the production Volt, why are they testing it in the Cruze body? The Cruze does not look unique, which is where some of the selling power of hybrid cars come from. The Volt has a unique look to it, which could help sell to those who like to advertise (sans gigantic stickers) that they are driving a hybrid. I don't see this as being very buzzworthy.

      "As intuitive as an iPod" is not a good comparison to use, given the latest iPod shuffle.
        • 5 Years Ago
        But did they actually refer to the new shuffle? They're talking about those classics.

      Thank you Chris Paukert, Ben Wojdyla, and Dave Thomas for making this happen.

      Vaporware
        • 5 Years Ago
        The upcoming "Sports cars" from Toyota? Yup, you're right. They are vapor ware!
        • 5 Years Ago
        Miata Coupe? Vaporware!

        Not sure wtf the relevance of all this is but it sure is fun!

      It's pretty hard to say anything about the Volt when it is not even in production yet. It has been delayed so long that Honda, Toyota or anyone else can gain the upper-hand. The Prius PHEV is already in public testing in Europe. The Volt is a good 2 years behind what you can get today for half the cost. Volt might not be that revolutionary from the first production model.

      Wow this chat is SLOOOOOOOOOWWWWW!!!
        • 5 Years Ago
        and pointless, i don't think we heard anything we've not read in a press release about the car. oh well.
      • 5 Years Ago
      please tell me that's a mule and not the more production ready vehicles. I dread the thought of great concepts being toned down by reality.
        • 5 Years Ago
        It better be a mule! If there's a single moron still with a job at GM that can make a decision to say "no blan it up" to the companies "American Revolution" icon of car (not that I think it's earth shattering) but still. It's supposed to be a "NEW" thing. Not a blanded thing. And for God's sake make the Chevy symbol smaller!
        • 5 Years Ago
        It's just a mule, don't worry.
        • 5 Years Ago
        It's not a mule .....it's a unicorn. I'll believe the Volt is coming when I see it on dealers lots.
        • 5 Years Ago
        GM can't produce any more cars. This won't ever make it to production. They'll be dead soon.
        • 5 Years Ago
        do you remember the original pontiac aztek concept vs the production ready aztek? thats the fact because the people hates gm
      • 5 Years Ago
      Already looks out dated............




      Looks like they are all driving in a rental car.
        • 5 Years Ago
        where have u guys been for the last like 6 months??? They've been obsessively revealing pictures of the real volt for quite some time now so why do some of you think this is it???
        • 5 Years Ago
        k.w.a - They don't cover the Volt on the forums at www.toyotasforseniors.com where JDM Lover is the admin and Sea Urchin is the "guy with the sexy Highlander avatar"
