Well as one of the first of the promised next-gen vehicles I have to say that my socks haven't been blown off.
Don't get me wrong, it's nice; it's functional; it's certainly a ground-breaking achievement for a company with the inertia of GM. I hope it draws plenty of plaudits and custom their way, even if they can't make a profit on this particular model.
Most of all I hope it gets many many drivers dabbling with home recharging and electric-only driving. Same with the "no tailpipe" rear end. These all help to bring key elements of BEV functionality and styling to a wider public.
Looking forward to reading the test drive reports.
I think a side profile comparison with the Prius is a good idea:
Hopefully the rear seat and trunk is of decent space given the changes they made to it.
Because there are tons of crazy people in this world...
On looks the Volt wins that one.
Hmmmm will Model S offer a similar styling improvement over the Volt?
It looks fine to me, but certainly not exciting.
Btw, Jalopnik seems to have better coverage of the Volt reveal than ABG.

Designwise I really like this as a "useful" design. I.e. it beats many other normal cars but not Aston Martin and the likes
I hated the concept so in my eyes this is a LOT better. And on pictures it actually looks so good I wouldn't mind buying this. Of course we in Europe will probably have to settle for the Opel version, which usually means really really boring designwise. Oh well around 2010 we'll be able to compare the design and specs of the Model S, Volt, Opel XX and probably some more alternatives as well.
