The Secrets Behind Camouflaging the 2016 Chevy Volt

The Secrets Behind Camouflaging the 2016 Chevy Volt
DURAND, Mich - Keeping one of the automotive industry's best-kept secrets is no easy task. Chevrolet has their work cut out for them as they work to mask the 2016 Chevy Volt's identity until it is ready for its debut at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January. Ever wondered what exactly the secrets behind camouflaging the 2016 Chevy Volt are? 

Well, firstly it is in the laps of Chevy engineers, not the designers, to create a camouflage that will maintain the secret of the Volt's styling and still allow for proper validation of its systems. It is a difficult balance, finding a way to cover more of the vehicle without compromising the results of the vehicle's development tests.

Although some of the "cool" designs Chevy engineers use for camouflage do earn some style points, the method to their madness is strictly focused on hiding the vehicle. Developing the perfect camouflage started six months in advance of early development. Here are some of the secrets behind camouflaging the 2016 Chevy Volt:

  • Black and white patterns act as the perfect color scheme, creating a shadow that hides the vehicle's design elements.
  • A 3D layering method can throw off onlookers, but much be applied carefully as to not interrupt the airflow around the Volt.
  • Engineers have discovered that swirl patterns work better than the traditional grid pattern when it comes to realigning pieces of the vehicle.
  • Bubble wrap is a light-weight, easily attachable camouflage material that can easily confuse all of those snooping Chevy lovers.
