While many carmakers are gearing up for the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit this month, General Motors might be gearing up for something else. The American car company recently renewed the CrossVolt trademark at the USPTO, sparking rumors that Chevrolet might be receiving a hybrid crossover model.

GM first trademarked the CrossVolt name in April 2011, but has yet to use it. Now that Chevrolet has created a brand-new Voltec powertrain for its newly redesigned Volt hybrid car, though, the likelihood of a Chevrolet hybrid crossover model is quickly growing. As the popularity of crossover models continues to increase, many carmakers are turning towards adding hybrid models to their SUV lineups, so it wouldn’t be a surprise if Chevrolet followed suit. We saw a sneak peak of the all-new 2016 Volt at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this past week. While the 2016 Volt will take center stage at the 2015 NAIAS, it’s possible that we will see a hybrid crossover model at a future show. Make sure you check back to Fred Caldwell Chevrolet for more information and to test drive the new Chevy Volt!
