2013 Chevrolet Volt

First good picture I've seen of the new rear color treatment.
No more back trim for 2013.

Which doesn't look as bad as I thought at first.
I still think the black roof was better. And I hear the black/tan interior is replaced by some beige/brown combo. (Which would be a shame).
The best news, if not a big one, is the 3 miles improvement for the electric range.

Still, another case of GM changing what doesn't need to be changed.
Like the used to do so many times before.
Instead of painting the roof body color, how about a sunroof option.

I hear bigger news are in store for next year. When the improved powertrain will be shared with the all new Cadillac ELR.

I wish they would carry the body color all the way to the lower trim. It would look a lot more high end and less choppy.

In the wonderful world of electric range, 3 miles is nothing to sneeze at. For some buyers, that might be just the little bit extra they need to get to work and back all on electricity. I know there's gas, but the pure electric experience back and forth to work counts for a lot

Nevermind the pitiful 3 miles improvement. How about a price drop.
