Production Version of GM's Electric-Powered Volt looks like good family car

There was plenty of buzz this morning at Lansing's (MI) Flap Jack Restaurant about GM's new electric car, the Volt, which should be in showrooms by the end of 2010.

The almost excited talk about this new Chevy powered by lithium-ion batteries reminds me of the sixties when many guys would purposefully drive by a dealership everyday to get a glimpse of a new model.

One of the guys pointed me to the online version of Car and Driver for photos of the  production version of the Volt.  Hey, this looks like a potential family car, a middle-class vehicle. 

The concept car looked less everyday and more appealing to those with the funds to make the big car purchase.

The production version doesn't look sexy.  It looks like Car and Driver described it,  a nondescript compact with a front that is unmistakably Chevy.

Anybody else hearing buzz about this new vehicle with the dramatically new technology?
