Hi all

I have just picked up my new Holden Volt - hence the 'u' in colour - from Barry Bourke Holden in Berwick, Victoria, Australia.

Not being enamoured with any of the standard colours available here in Australia I first looked at a completer re-paint but that turned to to be far too high a cost on top of an already expensive car.

After much discussion with the blokes at the dealership I came across a company a few suburbs away called Exotic Graphix which specialises in the vinyl wrapping of all sorts of vehicles from Lambo's, SUV's, 'bikes, trucks, boats and aircraft.

Liaising with them I came up with a colour scheme I liked and gave the go ahead with the following two-tone Volt

Land vehicle Vehicle Car Motor vehicle Mode of transport
Land vehicle Vehicle Car Automotive design Luxury vehicle


Land vehicle Vehicle Car Motor vehicle Grille
Land vehicle Vehicle Car Motor vehicle Transport


Land vehicle Vehicle Car Motor vehicle Chevrolet volt


I am very pleased with the result and love the look of my new car almost as much as I love driving it.

I am certain that the future holds many more electric cars, be they battery or fuel-cell powered, the driving characteristics are just so much better than with an ICE powered vehicle.

The only drawback I have found with the Volt, and that is because I have not yet got used to the car, is the poor visibility, especially when reversing. I am sure that once I am fully familiar with the reversing camera and the outside dimensions of the vehicle I will have no problems at all.

To pinch the current Mitsubishi sales slogan; LOVE THAT CAR!

Cheers

Dale

Yeah, looks great! Neat color (er, colour!) scheme!

I had issues with the rear visibility of my Volt too, when I first got it. But I did get (mostly) used to it. The A-pillars, too, but I'm definitely extra careful when looking to the front corners now.

Agree on the colour choices (limited range with Australian names for standard US ones)
