What (if any) major/minor changes will there be to the battery, engine that you guys know about?

Bring back RED and add AUTO UP to all windows and bring back Home link. Then they can then start thinking about adding some UP SCALE options like memory, cooled seats and HUD.

I agree with homelink. I'm thinking about retrofitting a solution like someone did in another thread. Brilliant idea and very cost effective.

No one knows anything about 2018 Volt except GM at this point. All you will get is guesses.

What's up with all the swirly camouflage? They're obviously Chevys...what would that be hiding?

Also, there's an extension cord going into the trunk of the Equinox. Almost like they have a traction battery in there that needs charging...
They're hiding the flux capacitor....

I'd hope they'd add the rearview mirror camera display as an option to help with the poor rear visibility. (Assuming it's still getting decent reviews from Bolt owners.)

I do know the 2018 will release later in the year than Norma (most volt model years changed before august)
2018 will be late, possibly not till 2018.

Let's hope the loss of 1 tax credit to GM in 2018 for volts doesn't impede progress.

I'm hoping the nearly 2 year long run of 2017 will mean a bigger set of changes in 2018, maybe some Malibu hybrid exhaust recovery and a small jump in aer

Ah well, nobody knows

Hard to be sure but maybe they fixed that silly looking nose. Could be they got rid of some of that cheap looking tail plastic too.
The guy's nose looks fine to me. Not sure why you're looking at his rear end :)

The "Volt" is the Buick Velite, you can see the pics of as it was caught testing in Chicago...Most think it's China only, yet to get the incentives in China it has to be built in China...So it's somewhat surprising to see it tested in the states and if it's just a Volt with a different front/rear fascia, not sure why they're testing it...

All we can do is speculate for the MY18 Volt...Now that GM is using both the Bolt EV and the Volt for Maven and Lyft (allowing drivers to rent them) faster charging makes sense along and it might as well match speeds so 7.2KW makes the most sense...I believe since the Bolt EV offers different grill colors they'll find their way to the Volt...I'd love to see a range increase like they did with the Gen1 Volt...

I hope they double the gallon capacity for gasoline.
I'd much prefer to have a 50% increase in EV range. As it is, my 70 mile commute has me filling my tank almost every 3 weeks which is plenty vs my old once every 4 days.
