Recently, spy shots and leaked interior photos of the highly anticipated Chevy Volt have hit the auto blogging world, leaving most motorheads foaming at the mouth. I, on the other hand, sort of feel like I showed up to meet an eHarmony.com date and he turned out to look more like Boy George than George Clooney.

As a result of spending months upon months gazing at images of the Chevy Volt concept car, we admit we’d envisioned something a little…cooler, than the sedan revealed in the spy shots. Captured during filming for the Transformers sequel, from what we could make out, the production version of the Volt looks almost nothing like the concept Volt of our hybrid dreams. While the disappointment we feel is admittedly our fault for being delusional, we’re still a little dismayed.

The interior shot that’s being circulated was supposedly lifted from an internal presentation, hopefully entitled “Rejected Ideas For Volt Interior Console.” To us, the blunt white styling suggests one of two things: a partnership with Apple in an attempt to compete with Ford’s acclaimed Microsoft SYNC technology, or a complete lack of design sense. We’re inclined to lean more towards the former, which only disappoints us in the sense that we don’t find ass-white very attractive.

    Unfortunately for GM if this is truly what the Volt will look like and assuming they roll out production models on time, their “victory” might be short-lived. Every day there seems to be another major automaker with a plug-in hybrid in development. An ass-ugly Chevy is not going to match up well against a Volvo, etc…unless it is markedly cheaper. But realistically, those that can initially afford and are motivated to purchase the “next best trendy eco-thing” will be those that can and will drop a few bucks for an upscale car like the Volvo and not a Chevy.

    This is just so disappointing. The concept Volt was a car that I was dreaming to own and couldn’t wait till GM released it. Now I am just sick. The released one looks like something my grandma would drive around in and I’m forty. I could actually afford one but I won’t be getting one now.
