From what I am seeing in one of the threads on this forum, cars are being delivered with over 75 miles on them. Perhaps in Area 51 they are being driven by the QA team to go through a checklist. If they don't pass, perhaps they go back for tweak or repair. I wonder if they have a top end on the number of miles before they are considered a used car.....Some of us have been in Area 51 for a lonnnnnnggggg time....
So long to my pals in Area 51...I have a truck ride to the train station today....
Best wishes to all of you in limbo land!

Me, too, on my way to New Boston...
While this is not the case obviously for a special order unit such as your Volt, my point being it is not unusual for a small amount of miles (usually less than 100, but not always the case) to have been accumulated on a new car.
In the case of the Volt, these additional quality control checks might result in additional accumulation than normal. It has been the goal of the Volt team to attempt to prevent no more than 75 miles on the odometer at time of purchase (as outlined in an internal bulletin to the dealers).
But each scenario is unique so there may have been sound rationale for the additional miles (either before shipment of after arriving at the dealer) in order to insure you'll be 100% satisfied with your Volt.
Don't forget, your official "in-service" odometer reading will be recorded at the time of delivery. So your new car warranty commences from this mileage and date.
If you encounter a Volt at pickup with significantly more miles than 75, I suggest you discuss the matter with your dealer.
