GM sources who remain unidentified have told reporters at Automotive News Europe that the production Chevy Volt will be revealed at GM's Centennial Celebration taking place on September 15th and 16th at GM headquarters in Detroit.

The article states "the rumors that a production version of the Volt will show up at the celebrations are true."

We have been speculating this for awhile knowing that GM would do the reveal at an event getting a lot of press attention. We also had heard the production Volt was scheduled to appear at the Paris Auto Show in October, and would of course be very surprised if GM would actually show it for the first time overseas. The Centennial reveal makes the most sense.

Indeed GM vice chairman Bob Lutz recently told reporters "a production model will be showing this fall, but not at Paris"

Furthermore GM is planning a worldwide webcast at 830 AM on the 16th, so that might just be the ideal moment.

As to whether yours truly will be there in the flesh...we'll have to wait and see.
