I found this in Business Week. Makes a good read and might have some pictures you haven't seen before. Just click on their links in the story.

When I watch the video, I like the way the plugin battery's door port open by a remote from the key VOB. :) I wonder what other idea that they come up with. Come on GM, leak some more info.

Right... the way the charge port opens from the key-fob is pretty cool. I think this video shows more of the Volt than anything I've seen before and with Bontiface explaining the reasoning behind the features, it makes it clear to me that GM has done some serious evaluation and RD on this...
I also like the twin LCD monitors... very cool.
Can't wait to be the first guy in Texas who buys one.

Sterling, Nice video! I love the key operated charging door, the comment that we can get many different colors for the center dash (I'm not too keen on the white but it's not that bad - flat black would be more my style), and the first showing of how the shifter works. Very nice design GM! You must get this car out. It is the future.

I'm hoping I can get a dash with the look of metal, with machined-in circular brushing, as in some airplane panels... but that is just a dream and probably not practical.
I'm probably going to bump up my shares to a tad over 2,000 in GM, hoping that General Motors will have some kind of "insider list" for stockholders getting first shot at buying a Volt. Then, plan on watching MY video on YouTube... (BTW... check out my video of an airplane I built and flew on the maiden voyage... go to YouTube and type in "Avid First Flight" or TUUTUUTANGO... My next video will by my first ride in a Volt :D
