When you think of it, there was no better pre-existing GM nameplate for an "electric" car than "Saturn ION", and the brand's image more than fitted one!

It freakin better not look like an Ion. If it's going to cost $35k+ this thing needs the Malibu treatment. Luxury car looks using inexpensive details.

I will be pissed if it looks like an ION, but I don't think it will effect the sales. The Prius is ugly as sin and Toyota has no problem selling them.

Aaron Bragman over at Global Insight has seen a model and tells us, "The production car looks much closer to a Saturn Ion. The front end looks kind of like a Saab, kind of like an Ion. The tail is still high. It looks a little BMW-esque."
Let's leave out the other salient quote in the statement.

Saab? Saturn?! BMW?!? All in one car no less. Very impressive GM.

On second thought, I'm not concerned. I have a feeling this guy wouldn't know a Saturn if it ran over him. He probably thought "Lithium-Ion, Saturn Ion... they're the same thing!"

I think in this segment, it's more important for the car to stand out and make a statement than be sexy. Hopefully it won't look too generic or people might look past it.

I hope they just get it here ASAP. I think the 2 door ion was an alright looking car. The 4 door not so much but I don't find anything appealing about the Prius at all.I just want the Volt to be ready to go soon.
