GM has confirmed that its new second-generation Volt will make its global debut at January’s Detroit Auto Show.

Accompanying the news is a first teaser image, offering a glimpse of the new model’s tailgate and familiar Volt badge.

While few styling details can be discerned from this tightly cropped teaser, it is understood that the plug-in electric vehicle will again be offered in five-door hatchback form only.

TMR’s own spy photos reveal an even more sleek profile than the current model, which already wears something of a four-door coupe design.

We can likely expect a more curved and ‘organic’ look to the new Volt, moving away from the current car’s angular and wedge-like design.

On the technology front, reports suggest the new Volt will get an all-electric driving range of around 100km, up from 60-87km in the current model.

GM claims more than 65,000 Volt cars have been sold in the US since its December 2010 launch, thanks in part to a lower retail price and considerable government incentives for the purchase of green cars.

Holden has moved fewer than 500 Volt cars however, with sales hampered by a relatively high retail price of $59,990 and nearly zero federal support for green cars.

But, with Mitsubishi now offering the much larger and much more practical (albeit shorter-ranged) Outlander PHEV for just $47,490, Holden will likely adjust the price of the Volt when the next-gen model arrives.

Watch for more details on the new Volt to surface over the coming months.
