General Motors officially turns 100 years old today, and as expected, the production version of the Volt was given its first public showing. GM’s Chairman and CEO Rick Wagoner introduced the vehicle, while Vice-Chairman Bob Lutz was given the honor of driving it on stage.

The exterior of the car was faithful to preliminary reports and spy shots. Although the look has changed from the concept, it still carries the same overall effect of the car that GM has been showing since last year. The interior’s mostly white backlight dash does look iPod inspired as first reported. There is no new news about the drivetrain make up of the car that should go 40 miles on a battery charge.

Keep looking at TopSpeed all this week for more details on products and news from GM’s 100th anniversary.
