General Motors has squeezed one last teaser in before the unveiling of its all-new Volt range-extended EV next month.

Previously, GM has teased the front and the back, and the model was spied testing back in April.

Now, the global carmaker has wheeled out a heavily camouflaged next-gen Volt and taken to the snow.

We’re not sure exactly what GM is trying to prove, but the Volt is obviously versatile enough to handle the snowy course chosen for it in this instance.

The Volt on show isn’t all-wheel-drive, and GM’s legal team has added to the confusion by adding “Professional driver - closed course development testing - do not attempt".

So while the Volt can clearly handle a small amount of snow under its wheels, GM won’t be promoting that fact in its 2015 Volt brochures.

The Volt will serve both Chevrolet and Holden as their next-generation, range-extended electric vehicles and is expected to bring several improvements over the outgoing model.

Many expected the Volt’s 1.4 litre four-cylinder petrol engine to ‘shrink’ in the new model, but GM raised eyebrows by announcing instead that a larger engine will take its place.

The new engine is a 1.5 litre four-cylinder petrol unit from GM’s Ecotec range but despite the increase in capacity, GM says it will be more efficient than the outgoing 1.4 litre engine.

The battery pack will be lighter in the new model by 13kg, yet capable of storing 20 percent more energy.

GM says the new model will have a greater all-electric range over its predecessor’s 87km, but is yet to reveal exactly what the new figure will be.

The 2016 Volt is set to be unveiled at next month’s Detroit Auto Show. When it will arrive in Australian showrooms is unclear at this stage.
