Chevrolet Volt has lost it's Power

Filed under:  Brand Related
Comment(s): 3

When we first saw the Chevrolet Volt concept it suggested that there was truly something new about to come our way from the great company that GM once was, but we now see that it has turned into nothing more than another unmemorable, average looking and forgettable vehicle that will soon be counted as one of the reasons why American cars can not compete in the world market.

Cars need to do many things, and we give some credit to this one for at least trying, but one of those things that is often forgotten, and put on the sidelines is the task of motivation. It simply needs to stir the soul. And this current version of the Volt does not.

We really hate to pile it on you GM, especially with all that is going wrong in the market today, but you are just going to have to try a little harder to win me over.

Here's a before and after of the Chevrolet Volt.

The concept version.

I gotta say -- visually, the production version is a heck of an improvement over the concept car.

The concept car looks like an electric car that is trying to masquerade as a muscle car. The production car looks good.

Since I don't buy new cars -- particularly new cars that cost 40 k -- it's academic, but if you were giving me my choice as to which I'd be caught dead in...

Hello, my name is Eric Swoyer I am a freshman at Archbishop Moeller Highschool in Cincinnati, Ohio and I was wondering if I could have permission to use a photo from your website. It would be a photo of the Chevrolet Volt. I only need it for my computer graphics class. It would not be mass produced and it is just for a grade. It will only be used once. If so can you please send me an email? Thanks Eric Swoyer
