The back of my 2013 Volt has a Turbo decal. Turbo.jpg

Does this mean anything?
The odd color makes me suspect is was added by the previous owner. As I can't find reference to it anywhere

Yes, that is just an aftermarket appearance mod. There is no turbo or option for a turbo on a Volt. Not even a reason to add one, since it would have no or minimal effect on performance.

Please remove it immediately. Neither the Gen 1 or II Volt's have turbo chargers. This is posing in the worst way. Save yourself any embarrassment and remove it today.

Someone thought they where being funny or something. Has nothing to do with the actual car. I remember someone else had put a "supercharged'emblem on his, just because he wanted to.

Be careful if you try to remove it. That pressure sensitive tape sticks really good. A warmup with a hairdryer or heat gun on low will make it a lot easier to get off. If you have to pry on it, use a plastic panel tool.

The best tactic I've found for removing that sort of thing is to take waxed dental floss and saw through the foam tape on the back.
Then take WD-40 and spritz some on and let it sit
The tape soon peels of fairly easily in most cases and the WD won't damage your paint, though you should wash it off well after.

Some other tips/methods here on this video... https://www.cars.com/articles/video-how-do-i-remove-a-sticker-from-my-car-1420692226462/

Yeah I'd pull it off right away as it's an electric car for god sake. The previous owner was clearly not in a reality based frame of mind.

I'm kind of a poser (but not really). I wondered why Chevrolet did not add a Premier emblem to the rear deck of the Volt Premier. So I purchased an Impala Premier emblem and added it in the place where I calculated it should have been placed had it had one. Looks totally stock and legit, but poser-ish none the less.

Anyone know why GM decided against adding the Premier emblem to the Volt considering every other Premier model carries one? It can't be a weight saving measure considering the emblem is plastic and weighs less than air. lol

I figured that if I had to pay a premier price for my Premier Volt, then my neighbor should know about it, right? Gotta show off your place at the top 8%! LOL

That’s not posing. That’s a legit correction.

I still want to see someone take the 300 badge for a Chrysler and mount it in front of the Volt badge. 300 Volt. Awesome!

I have some GM OEM 427 tags, they are still official parts, so perhaps 396 is avail too. 396 tags would probably be close to accurate, 396 Volt.
