GM Confirms Chevy Volt Photos Are Real...Somewhat - U.S. News Rankings and Reviews GM spokesman Rob Peterson told Edmunds Inside Line that the Volt "is taking part in the Transformers 2 movie," but said the car in the pictures "is still a concept version. It's obviously different from the original," he said, "But this is not the final version at this stage." Peterson "did admit that the vehicle in the video was 'representative of the production vehicle,' which he said would be 'revealed fairly soon.'" funny trivia from that article: UPDATE: "A source within GM has...confirmed" to Edmunds that "the Volt spotted on the streets of Long Beach, California was not a full running prototype, but a fiberglass replica of the production Volt design riding on a Malibu chassis with a full Malibu drivetrain and interior." Though "from 25 feet away...the Volt looks like a real car," in truth "like many movie replicas, the Volt is sporting everything from unique show car paint to oversized brake discs made of cardboard." The movie's car, however, is likely a close representation of what the finished Volt will look like. " Set for production debut next summer, the Chevy Volt will be released at the same time Transformers 2 is hitting movie theaters," so the car in the film will tie-in closely to marketing for the real car -- and the two will most likely look the same.
