Gas 2 | Bridging the gap between green heads and gear heads.

After enjoying several years as America’s semi-official Jesus Car, the Chevy Volt is starting to lose its luster in the face of bigger, better plug in hybrids from Europe and Japan- not to mention the more practical Ford Fusion Energi built by Chevy’s cross-town rivals. With the launch of an all-new Chevy Cruze (upon which the Volt is based) in China and promises that it will replace the current 2014/2015 Cruze here in the US sometime next year, everyone is waiting to see what a new, 2016 Chevy Volt is going to look like- and, so far, this is the best look that anyone outside of GM has had.

GM is being cagey with the redesign of what is, arguably, its flagship model- but it’s worth noting that this camo’d body looks a lot more like the new Cruze than it does the muscle-car inspired “original” Volt concept that, you know, looked good. Still, there’s a ton of money in getting the hybrid Volt right. “The Ampera (Opel Ampera = Chevy Volt in the UK) has one of the highest customer satisfaction ratings of any car, but it’s simply too expensive,” Steve Girsky, Vice Chairman of GM and interim president of GM Europe, told us. “If you want to make money it’s not about the cleverest technology, but who can deliver fuel economy at a lower cost.”
