So, it looks like they've gone with the "4-seater iPod" interior, which I find disappointing, but the outside looks better in these shots, especially without all the executives blocking the view.

I guess this reveal is why gm-volt.com is amazingly slow this morning, probably a hundred other people are posting this link but I didn't find it in the forums when I checked. Lots of pictures:

Plus and minus...

So, it looks like all those smooth touch buttons really will be smooth capacitive touch buttons, zero tactile feel and you have to look at it to figure out which button you're touching. The use of capacitive touch sensors makes them more durable and potentially more sensitive to a FINGER touch, but I think it means they won't work with gloves. Isn't GM based in MICHIGAN, where it's often cold enough to wear gloves? Hmmm...

On the plus side, you won't have to have a fish-belly white center stack, it'll be available in a few colors.

There's video (with poor audio) of someone talking about the interior and more interior pics here:
