Detroit, Michigan – The Chevrolet Volt concept has been awarded the 2007 North American Specialty Concept of the Year and Most Significant Concept Vehicle of the Year, while the Holden EJIFY won the 2007 North American Concept Car of the Year Award. Both vehicles made their U.S. debuts at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit earlier this year. The presentations were made at an awards ceremony at the Automotive Hall of Fame in Dearborn, Michigan.

Organized by the South East Automotive Media Organization, the sixth annual awards recognize those vehicles “most likely to shape the future of the automobile industry.” A jury of professional automotive journalists selected the winners from 33 concept and 11 production preview vehicles that made a North American debut during the 2007 auto show season.

Other nominees from GM included the Chevrolet Camaro Convertible, Beat, Groove, T2X, Trax and WTCC, and the Saturn Vue plug-in hybrid.
