    I like the car except for the front end. Please Chevrolet, don't go down the Toyota/Lexus road.

    I agree. Look at the Bolt concept. That had some wow features. The production version not as much, especially in the styling.
    I like this concept and like the size of the vehicle too. This would be a good seller if priced right and marketed. Let s hope GM has the desire to see it thru.
    That said I think the time is very close where Chevy must have a plugin SUV. This concept may be too late if 2 years out.

    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?

    Dear GM, thanks for offering ACC on the Volt, now let's give it 7.2kW charging & a garage door opener...

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

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

    What we're seeing now that the Bolt has been out in Cali, where half of all EVs are sold is that it's still being beat by cheaper Prime and Leaf despite its lower range...So while 30, 40, 50, 75 miles of range may work for you, it may not for sales if the price is high...If you can get the thing to $29,995 even if it only gets 25 miles of range, GM would sell a lot more than if they got to 75 miles of range at $39,995...

    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 like it. Would definitely buy to replace my 2012 Volt, Needs to be end 2018 or there will be other tempting options.

    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?

    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.
