    I like the styling of that concept.

    Fairly regularly and usually by an odd 2-3-5 miles type thing, but then I also take my truck on any trips I have doubt. I prefer my truck on ICE. My wife's BMW I3 REX is another data point that tells me 50 would be my sweet spot....

    One thing I have noticed with the Bolt on Voltstats, number is averaging closer to 55 miles PVPD, not 40 miles which researchers had been touting. I think GM discovered this with the G1 Volt and carefully pushed the G2 to match that number. Not an accident IMHO.

    Hopefully it gets a bit softer in front during production design. I'm assuming the suicide doors are for the concept show?

    And definitely at least 50 miles in electric range.
    Are you exceeding your current Volt's range by 10-15 miles exactly on a regular basis?

    Doesn't necessarily need to be all or nothing. They could offer a modular pack such that you could advertise the rock-bottom price but show them that for $x more you can double/triple the EV range (and make it easily accessible as a dealer add on post-sale for those who inevitably want more after they've had a taste)
    i.e. We can match that silly Toy on specs and price, or we can also do it 3x better. I'll be here when you come back for more.

    I predict that we'll look back at this design trend with the same horror we now regard bell bottomed pants and leisure suits.

    I LOVE it. If it had 40 EV miles, 40 MPG and AWD option, wooooooooooooo, Chevy would kill with this in the crossover segment.

    Not only is it very attractive, it follows a lot of Chevys design language so I could see something similar being built…Look at a Camaro and even the Volt, this concept uses of a lot of their design...

    I’d take a Vegas bet there will be an ICE version built…The PHEV leaves a lot of question marks, will it be built at all? Will it be sold in the States? Will it be affordable compared to the ICE or could you get the ICE AWD version for $29,995 while the PHEV with FWD only and manual seats is $65K?
