Photo comparison of Gen 1 vs Gen 2 Volts

Postby MrSustainable » Tue Nov 15, 2016 1:53 pm

My dealer made me an offer I could not refuse to trade in my 2012 for a very affordable three-year lease on the 2017 (Gen 2) model. They graciously allowed me to park both vehicles side-by-side and document all of the differences. For those that may be thinking about moving up, I have put all these comparison images up in a blog post: ... -volt.html

If anyone feels strongly that I left something important out, let me know and I will update the blog if I can get the appropriate images.

As I mentioned in the blog, it appears that GM designers have been keeping their eye on this forum and they have addressed most if not all of the issues that we have brought up with the original design. I think it is vastly improved in almost every way.

This is beyond my knowledge so that I have enough.
