Not sure where this should be best posted, but in case anyone wants to see the blue interior (porcelain) option in "real" life, attached are a few photos.

For some reason, Chevy uses computer rendered images and colors in its car build tool so the render vs. real is always off a bit.

The blue interior is nice for a brighter feel. It typically looks gray-is in any light.
Personally, I think the former black/brown interior of 2018 was a bit better but that brown is no longer allowed in the optional choices.

Still don't know exactly what I think about the switch from brown to this, but I definitely like it way better in these photos than it looks on Chevy's website.

I like the look of the seats. Is it perfs or stitching for the design?

You know, looking at these pictures, I can't help but wonder if the people putting the color scheme together were inspired by "The Dress" - Is the interior gray and black, or a light blue and black? :confused: ;) Hah

The holes in the seat back are seemingly random lines of perforated needle punches.
Not sure what Chevy was going for there. Drunk robot?

I would recommend Chevy not do this random design again.

I like it a great deal!

Perhaps the random looking stitching will help hide little surface scratches in the leather.

Doesn't look blue from where I'm sitting...

The fabric looks very pale. The slightest smudge is going to show up on these seats like lipstick on Marilyn Monroe, only not as attractive.

The blue does mark up easily.

Overall blue is nice because it is different and that is something.

However, since I ordered sigh unseen, if I were purchasing again-- I would go for the all back interior (since brown/black is no longer offered).

2011 Volt Anyone?

Not that I'm complaining, I liked the off-white seats in the 2011, which they only offered that model year with the otherwise black interior. Although, personally, I really loved the ceramic white (stormtrooper) accents in my now-sold 2013 -- that was different. WP_20140701_004.jpg

In the 16-18 model year, I personally lean more towards the "brandy" seats with the black side bolsters--I think it was a bit sportier. However, I definitely like the '19 interior and would probably opt for it. Only reason for an "upgrade" now though is the power seat. Would have been nice if they boosted the range a bit like they did in other Volt model years. Any confirmation that you might be getting more usable kWh (beyond 14.2)? In the 1st gen, they would bump it up a little bit each model year without re-certifying the number so that some 15's were hitting almost 50 ev miles without blinking.

I normally light lighter interiors (when they're new, the really light ones don't tend to age well), but I'm not really digging this much.

The white/blue color is a little odd in photos, and I really don't like how everything but the seating surfaces is black. Makes it look a bit like a stretched out tuxedo or something.


I thought the brandy/black combo looked pretty good, but there were only 2 cars with it out of the ~200 cars within 100 miles, and the dealers were both really inflexible. So no way was I going to pay the huge premium. The dash on the brandy is also a little too peanut butter-esque, they really should have gone more of a darker/richer brown color.

Black/black works for me though. The 2G Volt's interior isn't particularly upscale, so I feel like the simple all black tends to not draw too much attention to the homely design target GM went for...

Well, based on your photos, I took a chance and ordered the porcelain blue seats for my 2019 Volt Premier. I hope it's closer to the grey/white look in your photos than the blue in Chevy's photos. Unfortunately, I couldn't find any 2019 on any dealer lot near me that had this interior to see it ahead of time. I hope I like it!
