New shots of the production Volt

General Motors has rather quietly released two new shots of the production Chevy Volt. We get a glimpse of both the front corner and the very rear of the game-changer, which is expected to be shown in production form at the upcoming Paris Motor Show in October. Looking at the two new shots, it's clear that GM designers have tried their best to make the new car recognizable as the concept Volt shown back in Detroit in 2007. Clearly, though, the car's rougher edges have been smoothed over in an effort to cheat the wind and therefore improve aerodynamics and overall efficiency. We can also see the high-tech look of the headlights and fog lights, which glow a cool blue color. The rear gives an early glimpse into the production-ready badge.

Also released were ten shots of engineers doing their thing on the model's chassis and stylists molding the production-spec bodywork from clay. We really aren't sure why GM has released these early teasers, but we're certainly not complaining. Take a good look at our gallery below and let us know what you think.
