Styling of the concept was definitely better, but there's no way that could have worked for the production car.
Like Lutz says, aerodynamics is the key element in the efficiency of an electric car, and that's the absolute truth.
I realize why it is like it is, for maximum aerodynamics.
They did a really really good job of making the car as slippery as possible, I'd bet the Cd of the production Volt is .20 or less.
That said, I'm still not sold on the production design.
It's not horrible, but it's not outstanding.
But it is already starting to grow on me.
I need to see one in black.
