GM Reveals Two New Production Shots Of The Chevy Volt, 50 Prototypes On Road By End of Year

Illustration for article titled GM Reveals Two New Production Shots Of The Chevy Volt, 50 Prototypes On Road By End of Year

GM's just sent us two new photos of the production version of the 2011 Chevy Volt. While the first of the two shots doesn't show much more than what we saw when ABC News lifted the skirt last weekend, the second one shows us the big bowtie on the rear end of the new gasoline-electric sled from GM's American Revolution. Check out the high-resolution shots in the gallery below. We're also being told GM will have 50 prototypes running around on the highways and byways of Metro Detroit doing testing by the end of the year. Hmm, maybe this whole Volt thing's actually going to happen. Update: We just got our hands on some images of the ongoing work at the Warren Tech Center at on the clay model and chassis of the Volt.

@: Doesn't need a grille actually. Realistically it will rarely rely on the engine for power. And even then, it's a tiny engine. So much less air flow is needed, thus most the grille is blocked off.

This is a simple mod to many cars to partially, or in some cars, totally block the grille to achieve better aerodynamics. And yes, it does indeed make a difference on many cars. Most your grilles are built for worst-case-scenario cooling (think death valley), and can get away with a good bit being blocked under normal outside conditions
