GM Finalizes Volt Design

Chevy Volt will have new lookAfter it was officially decided to go ahead with the Volt concept, GM placed it in a wind tunnel to test it's aerodynamic skills. Quipped Lutz, VP of GM, the Volt may have done better if it had been put in backwards.

So, it was back to the design board for the Volt. But according to Larry Burns, GM VP for research and development, the design has been finalized (Source: GM has final Volt design; battery still a challenge).

Burns cited difficulty fitting in the oversized battery pack ("the size of a linebacker"). So, the newly redesigned Volt will resemble the concept, but it won't be the same.

The article also quotes Burns as saying battery pack safety and energy density requirements have been settled, but endurance is still being tested.
