Lutz: Chevy Volt aero might have been better if we put it in the wind tunnel backwards

Filed under: ,

One of questions that went unanswered after the debut of the Chevy Volt earlier this year was the drag coefficient. Last night at a dinner with bloggers before the opening of the Los Angeles Auto Show, GM Vice-Chairman Bob Lutz provided a clue. While talking about the Volt he said that the production version would look different from the concept but will be recognizable as a Volt. When they put the concept into the wind tunnel it was a huge disappointment. Lutz said they might have gotten better results if they put it in backwards.
