Chevrolet Volt MPV5 concept (photos)

Chevrolet has taken the as-yet-unreleased Volt extended-range electric vehicle in an odd direction for the Chinese market, making it bigger and less efficient with the newly revealed Volt MPV5 concept.

It's bigger. It's roomier. It's the Chevrolet Volt MPV5 concept.

Though we're confused by the concept of a Volt crossover, the design cues do translate well onto the CUV profile.

The MPV5 concept is targeted at the rapidly growing Chinese auto market, with no announced plans to market such a vehicle in North America.

Under its hood, the MPV5 is powered by the same Voltec power train as the original Volt, but its zero-emissions EV range has been reduced to 32 miles (down from 40). We're not sure if this is due to the increased weight, aerodynamic drag, or a combination of the two.

Inside, there's the same iPod-inspired cabin that we hope to see in the North American version of the Volt.

We're willing to bet those seats don't make it to production, but wouldn't it be cool if they did?

With more generous dimensions and a large cargo area, the MPV5 should seat five passengers. Wait, doesn't the sedan already seat five?

The white center cluster is capped by a retractable LCD, where the majority of the infotainment interactions take place.
