Photo of the Day: Chevy Volt Interior Cubby

By Jason Davis | May 24, 2013
Oh hey, a black and white photo. Fine art snob alert! One of the things we wanted to do with this photo series is to highlight not just my favorite photos, but those that may have been overlooked and underused. It's easy to overlook the details if you're not studying the image. So, if you can't see it, make it big! It's the key fob for a 2012 Chevy Volt. There's a little bit of light catching the Chevy bow tie logo, which is resting in a little cubby hole behind the center stack, presumably for wallets and cell phones and things of that nature. OK, so maybe my fine art photography background is showing a little too loudly (I started out with and still enjoy shooting film and making prints in a wet darkroom), but I found this cubby hole to be very useful. No man likes sitting on his wallet while driving, and we all know it's best if you just hide that phone--no distractions!--and this space provided that function. Too often we get into the rut of shooting the same pictures from the same angles. The Volt, thankfully, provided ample opportunity to change up the routine, and photos like this demonstrate that careful consideration went into its design. With this in mind, what are some of your favorite interior features and functions that you've found surprising? What kind of features do you wish your car had?
