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.
