We can hardly wait for GM to roll out its $40,000 Chevy Volt plug-in hybrid car in late 2010, but the company is teasing us. After showing off an early prototype, we heard the company was trashing that first design because its aerodynamics were better when it was running in reverse. Now there’s a new design afoot, but besides a couple of shots of the headlights and a part of the car’s rear end, it’s been cloaked in mystery. Until now.
Here’s a pic of the dashboard controls of the Chevy Volt, leaked from an internal presentation. Like the Prius, there’s an on-off switch to start the car, and look there — it’s a slot-loading CD player. This design seems more like an under-counter DVD player than a car dashboard; we’re hoping at least GM might reconsider that white iPodesque color. Check out the gallery below for spy shots of the Volt, spotted on the set of the Transformers II movie, currently in production in Long Beach, California.
