Chevy Volt Production Car unveiled, Concept was way hotter

GM unveiled yesterday the production model of the all electric Chevrolet Volt. What have they done to the cool Volt Concept the company introduced in 2007? The production Chevy Volt lost all coolness the Concept Volt had.
GM says the design of the Volt has been "evolved". Biggest reason for the redesign was the bad aerodynamics of the Volt concept car. Still, I am disappointed at the design. The only part of the Volt that still looks somewhat good is the back. We are looking here at a car that goes in production in late 2010. This is still two years in the future. In two years the Chevy Volt will look old already.

See a video of the Production Volt, where you can see the Volt at the presentation and on the road.
On the technical side the Chevy Volt still sounds ok, but will it be enough in 2 years to compete? The Volt is a plug-in hybrid with the electric part taking you 40 miles on a full charge. A small gasoline engine charges the batteries when nearing depletion to extend the range if needed. The electric drive of the Volt has 150hp and the top speed is 100mph.
