Converj vs Volt

Converj ProfileLet’s take a quick look at the Converj vs. the Chevy Volt to determine if they are indeed the same platform (as some have conjectured):

Wheelbase:
Volt – 105.7
Converj – 108.0

Length:
Volt – 177
Converj – 182

Width:
Volt – 70.8
Converj – 74

Height:
Volt – 56.3
Converj – 55

Power:
Volt – 150 kW
Converj – 120 kW

Torque:
Volt – 273 lb-ft
Converj – 273 lb-ft

So, it appears that the powertrains are mostly the same, but the platform they are built on differs significantly in the hard-points of wheelbase and width.

Given that the upcoming Alpha chassis is rumored to be a 110 inch wheelbase and coupes often are cut down a bit…it isn’t impossible to think that the chassis could be based on the Alpha rather than the Volt’s Delta. Countering this is the belief that the Alpha is a rear-drive platform, and the Converj concept is clearly a front-driver.

However, this could all be indicative of a concept that is truly a one-off rather than based on an upcoming product. However, that would make this the first concept in the last 3 that is not related to a production vehicle (after the CTS Coupe and the Provoq which ended up being the new SRX).
