The 2011 Chevrolet Volt is being revealed, slowly but surely, sketch by video by Webisode by photo--and these are the latest driblets in the GM PR machine's steady leak of Volt information.
The sketches are said to show the production front end and tail of the 2011 Volt, the plug-in hybrid that GM promises will go on sale in late 2010. The new plug-in will likely be shown in production form at either the Paris auto show in September, or at the Detroit auto show in January, where Toyota also plans to show off its next-generation 2010 Prius.
GM says the Volt will have an electric-only range of 40 miles, before its lithium-ion batteries need a recharge from the small gasoline engine that will run in tandem with its motors.
In a new video clip on the Web, GM is also showing off some aerodynamic tweaks to the design on a small-scale model. Bob Boniface, Director of Design for Chevrolet Volt, says in a post on the GM Fastlane blog that the result is an "attractive balance between aerodynamic performance and styling."
Stay tuned for more on the 2011 Volt as TheCarConnection.com prepares for this weekend's Pebble Beach Concours and the upcoming Paris auto show.
