Next-gen Chevrolet Volt will be "more road hugging," not too "weird"

For the next-gen Volt, GM has relatively little room to work with, given the constraints of packaging, safety and aerodynamics. I'd expect somewhat more sculpting where it doesn't hurt drag in any significant way. One nice thing for Chevy's team is that Volt 2.0 can have the same sort of incremental step toward efficiency that the Volt 1.0 had from the concept. I'm going to expect something slicker, with a more deeply-raked windshield, a longer aeroback, sharper Kamm cuts at the rear, while losing the fake window "extensions" and rocker contrasts.
