General Motors has submitted an application to trademark "Crossvolt" as a possible name for the bigger, MPV-style version of the Chevrolet Volt that's in the works. Chevrolet's patent application for the Crossvolt handle doesn't mean it's settled on a name for the family-friendly plug-in just yet. To keep us guessing, Chevrolet also has trademarks pending on the Chevrolet Amp and Chevrolet Strobe names as well.
Whatever the General decides to call its enlarged Volt, it will likely wind up looking similar to the Volt MPV5 Concept Chevrolet revealed at last year's Beijing Motor Show. Expect the eco-friendly soccer practice taxi to be in the same size range as the Chevrolet Orlando.
